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.

Nicely done

For someone who doesn't consider themselves an animator or a voice actor this was very well done. It felt a lot like a prequel to a longer story, so I'm hoping there's more later on. Keep up the good work!

I was kind of weirded out when it ended. It felt like it was just getting good! I guess I was as disappointed as she went it ended. I guess we'll never find out what really happened. At least this was beautifully animated. It reminded me of the cartoons made by the creator of "Genevieve".

The voice was quite good. I knew something bad was going to happen. It was extremely unpredictable. The creepiest part was probably with the shadow. There was never confirmed to be revenge, though.

well done

nice style and a well paced narrative. only concern is clearer, better audio. But a good story nonetheless!

Really enjoyed it!

My only disdain is with the poor audio; please invest in a better microphone, artistic expression should not be hindered by technical capacity but should be fueled by the storehouses of inspiration and creativity (of which you seem well stocked). Keep it up!

Nice Teaser

But now, you have to make the full story! Wait... Your not going to animate it? Don't worry, we like good story no matter how you make them.
