Beyond Tuonela: Teaser

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.



Holy s#"t, this is great, did not expect this at all.
Well done, nice sounds, great animations, nice colors.

Do want more, thank you for this!

You're welcome! You hopefully won't have to wait too long for the next installment.

I think i was 6 stars...

This is a very impressive animation. Fun to watch, and I hope there will be a full story eventually.

I absolutely loved how the mixed CGI and animation managed to complement one another due to the excelent camera work and the style of animation. The droid is absolutly adorable with the half-shuttered single optic. Maybe it is because I am such a Shockwave fan, haha, but then it would have to be an Autobot Shockwave. I can't wait for the pilot!

Awesome flash!
