This is my first animated film!

Let me know what you think =)

- Stopped looping music at the end of the movie
- Added a replay button at the end of the movie
- Optimized from 9 MB to 3 MB (!)
- Fixed some minor graphical errors

Thanks to everyone for all the great feedback!

I want to add that this was the culmination of a summer course I took which is now finished, and it took me three intense days to put this piece together.

It's a PARAKEET that's BATMAN! You don't beat that!

I loved the way the budgie grooved to the music, and the creative usage of the silhouette to make the rapid wing movement look plausible! Good directing overall! I didn't like the huge screen though, my own is tiny.

This also raises a disturbing question: what would Robin be?

Galiant responds:

I think you've already answered your own question! Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks =)

Not bad. Not bad at all!

I must admit, this isn't too shabby for your first animation. The animation style was very nice, but the character movements were quite simple and repetetive. Though it didn't have much in the way of story, what it did have of a story was nice with a very funny twist at the end. All around: a very solid start into the world of Flash.

Galiant responds:

I agree, I wish I had had more time spend on it as I had a deadline to meet, specifically the end scene with the nest they look reeeally mechanical.

Thanks for the feedback!

Really enjoyed this :)

Cool little story and pretty well animated.
I loved the music as well, it really complemented everything nicely.
I can visualize some amazing work coming from you in the future. :p

Amazing work!
