UPDATE: Uuuuh, front page?? Thanks a ton. :] And thanks for all the votes and reviews and advice. I've updated the movie with subtitles to make up for over processed audio garble.

My first newgrounds entry ever, as well as my first animation in years. It was made in part to get myself playing around with Flash again. It was also so I could get some sort of little intro for this story I've been working on, but have no intentions of animating(if it were, the style would be way different. Frame by frame awesomness that I'm not capable of now). Therefore this animations raises faaaar more questions than it answers. I worry that it won't stand too well on it's own because of that, but hey, twas a good exercise and stuff.

My apologies for the Frankenstein-esque mess that is the narration. I compiled all the clips in the most unorganized way ever, so in the end it turned into a hodgepodge of different volumes, voices, effects, and noise that was hard to fix after the fact. Blargle. Welp, lesson learned for next time.

So yep, I'm no animator(nor a voice actor, apparently), but it was fun to do. So will probably try some more stuff in the future...with less vibration inducing textures...and better audio.

Awesome, but....

Where will we be able to see/read the rest of the story?

KLawter responds:

It's basically this story that I don't think I can tell until I get the story JUST right and can illustrate it JUST the way I want it. But I plan for a graphic novel format one day once I iron out all the wrinkles. Though I may animate random excerpts from the story as exercise. Thanks for the comment. :)

Very nice

This story sounds lot like a fairy tale or myth, more mystery than facts. Shadows and sudden images suggests sins. Maybe there no general son involved, or demons. Just insanity of one sister pulling a knife on another. The monster reaching for the sister at the end may not symbolize revenge. The monster may only be angry. I hope this story continues, if not it remains a tale where darkness, or innocence, could have been anywhere.

Aside from my examinations, I will nick pick at one gross detail. Bones are actually beige, or a tan color. It's a process in labs that makes them white.

Are teeth suppose to be white....maybe I'll google that. :p

Absolutely original, the voice acting was impeccable, the quality of it reflected the mood very well, and the paper animation style was a very fitting compliment to the dark, yet mysterious story. The animation itself flowed very smoothly, and my favorite part was indeed the music which didn't draw away from the animation. I would say this is comparable, if not better than the work of Katy Towell. Fantastic, loved every minute of it.

I love Yann Tiersen

But seriously, after watching this, I feel it deserves daily first, not second.

I love the style, it all looks very dark and evil, and the entire atmosphere is only enhanced by the voicing. In spite of the varying volume levels. It could definitely do with some refining and finetuning, but with a story like this, it's bound for greatness. Love it.

Although I didn't finish watching the flash, for reasons better left unspoken, I can tell that a lot of effort was put into creating this flash. The plot seems weighted and original, and the music fit closely with the events at hand. However, if I MUST be critical about your work, I was dissatisfied by the level of quality of the animation you showed. The flashes of hell visions and artwork were clean and detailed, but the most actual animation I saw was the crowd or groups of people quivering in place. Nevertheless, I am pleased with your work and await with baited breath for the chance to finish this and view your work in the future. Keep up the good work!
