Reviews for "Hej Sokoly"

Ok For those who dont know about it, or dont understand the storyline this video holds i will explain

Protagonist: Kid with the Falcon EyePatch
Antagonist: Greedy "King" of the "Red Kingdom"
Scientist in flash back: The King of the Falcons

In the beginning it show a older man (The King of the Falcons) giving a message to the Protagonist then he hugs his "Girlfriend" After having a strange reaction to his mission. Judging from this reaction and him staring at the picture all the time i assume he knew it was a Suicide Mission. They go off to bring the antagonist to his senses about something, perhaps the ominous looking cloud (Was it a portal?) in the sky, above a tower with one beam of light stretching to it. It appears this light is caused by the crystal in the first scene in the lab. The flashback scene explains alot in a short time, The antagonist is easy to match up, the scientist is the Falcon King (stated above). The Antagonist tried to be a "Do it Yourself" guy to create a portal to another world using the scientist machines or he tried to prevent the problem of the Clouds but instead worsened the Situation. When the antagonist does this he causes a heavy whiplash in the room causing his wife to be sent into the energy grid below (and killed), he gets sent flying near another Energy grid and causes his Right arm to be vaporized, while the scientist saved the Antagonist's son and presumably left to die, but it appears the king thought the son died with his mom so he left. You can see the antagonist staring at a hologram of his wife mourning her death and you see clearly he has a robotic arm. Once the Falcons get to the throne room they are stopped by a "Paralysis Field" that freezes them in time all except Elite Guards (3 dots on the head that glow), The Protagonist and the Antagonist. This field is generated by the crystal from the looks of it implying that they are unlimited sources of limitless power and the only way to stop the "apocalypse". Once nearly all of the falcon squad is eliminated the Protagonist trys one last thing... he Jumps the antagonist and gets stabbed through the chest with the robotic arm, and the eyepatch falls revealing the common mark between them, and the fact the antagonist is the father of the protagonist (LUKE I AM YOUR FATHER moment there). The son apparently "Self-Destructs" and takes the Paralysis Field with him. The Antagonist Calls the falcon king and says basically he will link up with the tower to stop this "Portal" From ending the world, i assume because its the cause his son died for and he will honor his sons wish. The second beam is powered up and the tower shoots a third beam of light into the Clouds causing them to lift up as the protagonists girlfriend watches with joy, then the king tells her of the tragedy that took place and comforts her.

That sums it all in one nice big paragraph :P hope it helps!

Yes! I'm glad people are getting it. A lot to tell in less than 4 minutes. The death of the son doesn't actually cause the end of the paralysis field though as much as the king just stops it. The son just did that as an attempt to get the message to the bad king. The protagonists king sent him specifically knowing he would be the only one that could successfully be able to deliver the message, no matter the costs involved.

I really think you've done top notch once again with graphics and song together. not much vocal but none was really needed by the usual facial expression. Glad to see you're still making these! Keep at it and remember at least one person is looking forward to the next!

Boy, what a ridiculous amount of work you put into that. Fantastic effort.

It's easy to see a lot of work and skill went into this :)

One problem - dunno if it was entirely down to my laptop being slow/crap - was that sometimes I didn't understand everything going on.

Great stuff and I'd love to see more like it

What great graphics. My computer did indeed have some slowness with playback on the intensive scenes. I would recommend that you incorporate a quality button of some sort, since simply lowering the quality to medium seems to fix most chugging problems for me. As for the animations, this is superb. Great mix of style, animation, colors, and story. The only complaint I have about all of this is that sometimes there is too much going on the screen at once. The characters are rather complex in their designs, which is an okay thing when there is not a lot on screen, but in the intense graphics and fight scenes, it gets difficult on following whats going on for the most part. I am not familiar with the story/folksong, so this was an interesting story, and very executed. I understood it completely, but I feel some scenes was a bad choice in camera angle.
Anyway, great job! This graphical animation is fun to watch, and the music makes it exciting and fast-paced.
