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.

your first submission evar is an epic win

Really good animation but fix the sound

The animation and the story were great but the sound put me off at times although it contribute to the creepy vibe of the video. Try to make it clearer next time but other than that it was excellent.

Loved it. Althought the narrating coulda been slightly more clear.


I loved the style of the whole thing along with the music. The story it's self was spooky and entertaining. Though, you need to work on your audio quality. I can tell you put a lot of work into this. Well done.

you got me super interested!

this is the great start/pitch/trailer. I really like the setup. the narrator (though had bad audio quality) didn't over or under do the delivery. It was paced well and fed the information very well. It didn't hang on any beat too long. And with everything this covered, how much you explained and how much you left a mystery really got my brain cogs turning and wondering where it could go, or what came of all this. Very good job!

From a visual standpoint it was a very unique style. reminds me a bit of edward gory and A series of unfortunate events a bit (that's a good thing). But the paper cutout look, while it seems like it might be too distracting or glaring of a style statement... it didn't. It wasn't distracting and over all gave a nice tone to the movie. You handeled all these things brilliantly. Congrats!
