Beyond Tuonela: Teaser

Author Comments

Hey newgrounds! My last submission to this site was in 2008. I have taken my old animations down since, because... well... they were pretty bad. I decided to hone my skills and practice for the next 4 years. I really did not work on any animated projects aside from tests. A few months back I decided it was time to start working on a project I've been wanting to make for years. The prospects of the project were daunting and I needed to make sure it was possible to achieve. This short action sequence was made as a technical test. I'm happy to bring you the product of that test. I know there are a lot of teasers, promos, and whatnot for hopeful series, but I hope this one is different from most. I know it may not make much sense, but there is a plot behind all of this and the pilot is being made right now!
For anybody wondering, this was made using only Flash, After Effects, and Photoshop.

Enough from me, check it out and tell me what you think.



Wow! that was pretty cool! I can tell this will go places.

If I had to make a suggestion, the constant movement of the camera makes it hard to watch at times. You're going to make people sea-sick as they watch. Tone that down, and you'll be fine.

I love the use of the camera angles and the realism into an animation like this. Different type of animation I usually see but seeing this I really like it look foward too it well done.

i usually never login or write revieuws.
but this style was amazing.
loved the one eyed bott.

only one downside.
however i really do want to see more of this.
i do not feel really teased..
i had no idea why the bot was crashing and what kind of world he is in.

you pretty much have no idea of anything.
and to realy TEASE.. you should give a little hint.... at least how he got the damage to his spacecraft
or a real small hint why the police bots inmediatly start to fire on him....

just tease me a bit more :D

You've worked hard and it really shows here! Looking at the flashing from the clouds and explosions though, made half my brain feel like jelly.
Sensitivities aside, this piece has great visual and audio quality. I definitely like what I could see! :)

not bad.
