I'm finally putting my 2017 graduate film that explores the dynamics between parent and child when grief seems unbearable online.

I wanted Newgrounds to be apart of it's release, and I just wanted to note why. It all began when my brother started making animations using ms paint and movie maker and then my brother found/got a copy of Macromedia Flash MX 2004, and we messed around and then my cousin got/had a copy of Flash 8, I believe he found Newgrounds and we started to create. I can still remember that first animation I submitted here that got blammed and you can still see my first animation (which will be 10 years old this September) that passed through the portal on this account (which used to be called flashero). Thinking back it probably would have been so easy to stop or grow impatient, but I think Newgrounds helped keep me motivated. It's so great to come back after studying animation and receiving my degree to release my graduate film that probably wouldn't have existed had it not been for this platform.

A world where adults are children and children are adults and the child-adult has a horrifying call of their husband or wife found dead/gone or they've left them...

That last part could just be me making guesses though...

DillonBrannick responds:

I wouldn't want to say more than I've said in the description, really what you take from it is what matters. I really enjoy hearing others thoughts on it and how they differ from my own intent. Usually the core of what I wanted to show comes through in some way or another.

Glad you enjoyed and glad it has you guessing and thinking about it!

So what happened here? Who called the baby?

DillonBrannick responds:

haha, I'm not sure it matters

I really enjoyed it.
Wasn't exactly clear what happened specifically, but I think I got the gist.
Music fit very well, also.

i love it but im also confused about it. good job.
