EDIT: To all billion of you upset about the volume of the character "voices" compared to the actual song, send your complaints to the original creator of the song. I simply animated to the MP3 I had, and couldn't alter it in any way. There's nothing I could've done to change it, sorry.

This was a little idea I came up with practically on a whim last Sunday. I finished the whole thing in a little under a week, and I think it turned out pretty well. Back in 2004, a dude by the name of Martin Hagwell, also known as "Märta" made a song out of the BGM from the "Forest Maze" level from Super Mario RPG for the SNES. Just recently, he remixed the song he created into a full-fledged professional sounding song, titled "Rawest Forest". After finding the song by chance last weekend thanks to a YouTube video, I took a listen, and got the idea for this movie. Mario RPG is one of my absolute favorite games of ALL time, and I know it inside and out. Those who know the game as well as I do will catch all of the references scattered throughout the animation. I also used this as a test to try out some new little tricks with animation. The good majority of the movie is frame-by-frame, and yes, I know the drawings're a little crappy (I don't have a tabley, unfortunately), but I enjoyed working on it throughout my last full week of High School (YAY), and it doubled as the final for my animation class, so that's even better! Anyway, hope you enjoy it for what it is. I certainly had a ball.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

friggen epic

very good graphics and it all flows really well. I myself am a big fan of Super mario RPG (thank god it is now available for the wii since my super nintendo is dieing) and was over joyed at this. if the scale went up to 11, you would get it.

Amazing song and flash

After listening to the song a couple of times I now see why you made an animation for it. the game is amazing, the song in this flash is awesome, and it looks like you put a lot of work into this. it sure paid off! :) That said the only criticism I have is that I would have liked it if you drew some of the characters with more accuracy, some of them looked like scribbles.


Rated 5 / 5 stars
