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 4.5 / 5 stars

nicely done

I love the style this is done in. It's very unique and colorful, and it really helps to tell the story. The music is interesting too. Overall I'd say you achieved what you were probably aiming for with this animation.

I enjoyed it, at least.

Gerkinman responds:

Enjoying it is what its all about in the end my friend.

Good stuff

I really enjoyed this, the colors, the music and the design were all wonderful- it felt very surreal. The story seemed a little too long and was drawn out toward the end, though.

Also, did I see a ZekeyspaceLizard cameo when he first looked through the telescope?

Gerkinman responds:

Yeah, me and Zekey cameo in each others work quite frequently.

That was very interesting.
However I can't tell what was wierder, the actual flash itself or the background music.

Gerkinman responds:

You will be debating this until the end of time.

Nice little Movie

Definetly nice Drawings and Animations. And i like the "story" too. To all of you who "dont get it". Its just a child looking through a Telescope using his Imagination to see what he wants to see. Nothing more, nothing less. However i think everyone should see our world through the eyes of a child every now and then.

Peace and out

High Five!

Someones on the ball tonight.
