    This guy can not only tell a great story but his editing, transitions and overall construction is a stand-out for me. If they ever gave out ‘best editing awards’ in animation festivals, this would be up there

    I would hate this if it weren’t so cute.

    Pretty awesome stuff. The visuals and audio are obviously very impressive – though I did not there was a lack of much needed Foley/atmos/ect for a minute there after the 2:20 mark or so. Otherwise this is a pretty well crafted film. Not to mention the soundtrack is available for download on the website – joy!

    Saw this on NewGrounds.com a long while ago and loved it! Their other shorts are just as awesome and addictive too. You can see their stuff on either newgrounds or the Tar Boy website.

    It’s a fantastic piece animation, from the plot to transitions/storyboarding to the acting all the way down to the animation. Just goes to show you that Flash CAN be used to create some professional-looking stuff. I patiently await its sequel.
