Story[edit | edit source]
The movie begins by introducing Bitey, a Dashkin who is the last of his species. A flashback is shown of a large creature fighting what is assumed to be others of Bitey's species. It then flashes back to his childhood, where he is taken in by two large furry creatures and taken care of, until eventually he is abandoned in favor of their own child. Bitey is then attacked, and begins to flee, where it flashes back to the present. Later on, the movie explains his loneliness, and the question of how Bitey can find the true meaning of compassion. The movie ends with a strange hooded figure appearing before Bitey, where it will continue in the next part of the series.
Presentation[edit | edit source]
The Last of the Dashkin uses the traditional Brackenwood style. Blues, greens, and browns are the dominant colors. The level of detail is notably greater than previous entries in the Brackenwood series, possibly due to the longer production time or Philips's increasing experience. For the first time in series history, the movie is narrated by an unknown character.
Reception[edit | edit source]
The Last of the Dashkin was one of the greatest hits of 2009. As of July 2010, it has over 650,000 views, the big three Daily and Weekly Awards, and an average review of 9.8/10. Along with being a part of the Brackenwood and Flash Portal History collections, The Last of the Dashkin was also voted the top movie of December 2009, and therefore became a nominee for the Tank Awards. Unlike Waterlollies though, it lost to Tarboy.
