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.

This was the first time I had ever heard of Marta or this song, but I am extremely glad I watched this. I'd never actually played SMRPG, but after seeing this, it made me wanna play it so much that I actually bought it. It's so amazing! Thank you sir for being awesome.

Great video, and the catchiest song ever is a Mario song!

With the characters voices...

There is a sound editing thingy in flash if you select the sound and click effect and you can change the volume in certain parts of it there.
Nice film though!

My major problem with this was....

I could barely understand a word of it. Especially the goomba and the koopa trooper talking at the beginning. I have no idea what they said. My advice would be to add some subtitles


Rated 5 / 5 stars
