I find that your appologies in the author comments truly aren't needed as this flash not only deserves its recieved acclaim but surpasses how I think we define flash. As an art form, flash is predominantly lacking, yet in this piece I feel the animation, music, and monologues flowed so well together that it created something out of the realm of a simple animation on a computer screen.
I watched the film before I read your comments and while doing so I thought "This animator must have written the story then animated it much later," as it sounds like a lterary work very recognizably. I was obviously surprised to find you created the work intending to make a flash because animations scripts normally don't have many poetic or driving undertones. Very well done, then, in that respect.
Walter Joyce is one of the best animations I've yet seen, and in my opinion by far above the quality of most movies on this site, and even most the animating internet for that matter. I only wish the demographic of this site were older and more mature so as to appreciate the true rarity and beauty of such a compilation.
I do have one question to stray from my praise, however. How did you arrive at the name Walter Joyce? It is, in a word, perfect.
