April 20, 1999. The world was in shock as camera footage was shown on television of SWAT teams evacuating students out of an american high school. It was the last moments of a terrible tragedy that cost 13 victims their lives and left many more severly injured. The two responsible, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, turned out to be 2 teenage students themselves of Columbine High, making the motivation of the tragedy even more uncomprehendable.

Autumn Tree is a story based on the lives of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. Whitout it being a complete reconstruction, it shows the situation before and during the tragedy. For more information we would strongly recommend to read the authors comments in te menu.

Just a few words considering AT. Alot of this movie is fact based. Do you think we made up the Natural Born Killer poster? Fact is that Eric Harris even codenamed the tragedy 'NBK'. Also allmost all the situations really happened. Dylan taping Eric, the friend who they spared in front of school, the 'Do you believe in God' conversation.... Know the facts before you start to write a 2 paged opinion about their motives when you have no idea what you are talking about. We dont know what was the cause, we simply try to show it from all angles, close to how it really was.

Also the dialogue in the last scene was taken from what they literally said during the massacre.

Sad but true

I have to admit you did a great work. The animation and the detail you get to do it.

It's sad to see what humans can do when they hit the bottom. This is not an alternative but sometime, some person think it is..

PS: If I remember right, they didn't show guns to their friend when they get them out of the car.

I am sorry but

I do not know how to rate this considering this was a true story and synxz fuck you this might have been made anywhere but this was a true story it is easy to get guns and bullying is a realism i used to e bullied then I stuck up for myself screw youre thoughts. Nice work at reminding these people about what happened this is a very sad story we all thank you!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


to be pushed to that because some person doesn't feel good enough about themselves is just horrible. and yet i have a gut feeling nothing will change, people will continue to bully to feel better about themselves and occasionally someone will reach their breaking point and do something like this. it's a vicious cycle.

a sad story

i liked the video. not because of the violence or anything. i like it due to the fact that you made it to remind people of what happened. people these days seem to forget the saddest moments in history and i think reminding us all of things like this will keep us in check so we wont repeat history...

Still chilling a decade after the real massacre

Well-made and one of the saddest things I've ever seen. The scary part remains the relatability of the killers. If I'd had a different environment, different interests and feelings of persecution and hopelessness, maybe I would have met a similarly needless, tragic end and taken others with me. One of the things so many people seem to forget about high school is that it's not a time when anyone is a fully formed individual. In retrospect it's probably why all my teachers in high school were often sad, tired and/or angry. Most of the time they were interacting mostly with people who LITERALLY were "not all the way there," at least not yet. I bet that sometimes it can grate on a teacher the same as if they were a nurse in a psych ward or a rehab clinic. The downside of this state of incompleteness in teen-agers is the judgement-making centers in the brain are NOT fully formed. A big part of why this tragedy happened is this. Don't think there's any science to it? See how many drunk driving fatalities, hell, how many driving fatalities period, there are in the 15-20 age group. Now compare that with any other age group. Developmental biology is not the only piece of the puzzle, but it's a big one. Sorry for rambling. Again, a great, fact-based short.
