Hey there Newgrounds, it sure has been a while since I uploaded anything substantial.

This is the tale of a young child and his imagination, based on the characters Allen and Merve created by my friend Jim Hort around 5 or 6 years ago when we were both in High School. I always liked the characters and wanted to tell some sort of origin story for the pair. Any meaning deeper then that you can decide for yourself.

This film was started over 2 years ago, first as a music video for a band, then after that fell apart it very much became its own thing. During the production of this film I have changed home 3 times, jobs twice, and god knows what other madness. I never want to take this long to complete anything ever again.

Heres hoping this film gets my butt back into gear and back on track with my film making.

Edit: Thanks for the front page Tom and Company <3



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Pretty good

Loved the music and the animation was nice.
The only point is the plot. How do I put it, it was more bad than good. Sorry dude, but keep it on. :D

Other than me getting a headache while watching, this was a pretty well done, though I am not completely sure I understand what you where trying to convey...

But random is good too.

Gerkinman responds:

Random isn't exactly what I was trying to convey but it certainly seems to be a trend in these reviews, Obviously I need to invest more time into telling stories visually. Thanks for the heads up. :)

I liked the energy

and the animation was pretty neato.
But overall it was pretty unpleasant to listen to and look at.
The equivalent of headaches and stomach cramps, oh my

Where off to see the doctor, the wonderful doctor of oz.

Cool vectors

But work on your animating.

No, no, no.

Seriously? What was the point? I got bored less than half way through. This was god awful from the start. Storytelling is obviously not your strong point. Good luck.
