About a year ago a friend and I began to work on the pilot episode of a series about a fox and a barn owl, fighting for balance in a world where humans are long gone. Inexperienced as we were, we went for a project in which I would do art, frame by frame animations, script and storyboard, and where she would work on sound effects and soundtrack. Time ended up being against us with school and all, and I ended up having to compromise with the soundtracks and finding sound effects myself. I am however grateful for not having to carry this project all the way alone, because without the motivation from the people around me, I, a 15 (now 16) year old girl, would never have been able to work for a whole year on the same project.
A great thanks goes out to the talented voice actors who assisted me with this project, as well as the 48 people who auditioned. I am sorry to have made everyone wait for so long.

Anyways, I hope you'll be able to enjoy these 6 minutes of pilot, even with all the faults it may have. It may not seem like much to the trained eye, but I broke down a lot of barriers working on this.

Sorry for the large filesize. You can also watch the flash here: watch?v=M-vKDBXRDBU (without spacing)

Reminds me of the Redwall animated series. I think the author is on to a good concept, at some point if there is enough material, Hikarian should send it to a publisher, it seems more than good enough to be made into a book series. As far as the flash itself went, the art and audio were fine, best part in my opinion was the narrator's voice.

Very good for a start. I like your storytelling abilities and it's got a lot of promise. The art is interesting, while it could do with a little work, I do find it quite charming and unusual. The animals in a apocalyptic world is an interesting concept; it's not been done that many times before, and it's interesting to see what is going to happen.

Perhaps work on the animation of the animals a little more; it's the little movements that make them believable as characters. For instance, when Zale ran past Elva, wouldn't Elva simply turn her head around, being an owl, rather than turn full circle? You can actually find a lot of help online these days; animated gifs work well for you to work off so you can see how a fox runs or an owl moves in certain situations. If you manage to get this down, your characters will have a lot more believability.

Good job though, and for all your time constraints and other factors, you've done well here. Looking forward to seeing more from you.

I thought it was pretty good but it would of been better if it was wolf instead of a fox.
