Hey MPC I think its cool specially the flipbook but the rest of the template is pretty generic. No uniqueness to it at all other than the flipbook BTW it’s awesome.
I think TF is looking for more unique or original ideas, not just for graphics but i think for also layout and to have lots of cool functions with animations.
Why don’t you try a flash like look. The templates i have been doing are kinda lika a flash template specially the layout with lots of funky animations and i never had a problem with a rejection other that very small things like the fonts, padding and so on.
Good luck with it man.
