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)

for me the movie but what i saw was good


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Apart from the dodgy story line and annoying intro. The art style and smooth flowing animation was fantastic. I stuck with it to the end only to be disappointed when the black cats voice actor revealed himself. The only voice actor more annoying and over used is Rina-chan. For the love of god, do not recruit her too. Keep up the good work; I'd love to follow a new series on Newgrounds again.

You can't feel it can you? Something in the air is... pretentious...

I liked the style of animation. The voice acting was ok, but what stopped me from enjoying this flash was the pretentiousness. Looking past the "folly of humanity" plot point in the intro. The video itself felt overly artsy and unentertaining. Though I can't say it was a 'bad' flash. I do enjoy the story telling style. Similar to Bitey of Brekenwood. Maybe its just that the way this flash was written wasn't for me.
One more small detail i felt nagged me. I felt like the animals mouths shouldn't move when they talk. Just having the voices correspond to the body language of the animal would have seemed more fitting for this kind of video.
In any case, i feel your a quality animator. Keep up the hard work. This one just wasn't for me.

This is stupid, animals can't talk, and voice acting is terrible.
