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.

I wish Square would remake this game like those FF ones on the DS and then this release it in EUROPE!

Clever and well timed

Good job. It sunk in well with the song. Who sung it? Animation was well done, music was catchy and sung pretty good, and it was enjoyable to watch. Just at the start it's hard to hear the cooper and that talking over the music. Anyways wells dones.

i think it was pretty cool but it would be nice if there lyrics for this song cause i can't really make ot what the singers are trying to say


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not bad...

I still remember this hame by heart. I can still name all the frog coins in the first three areas xD
The vid was done well for hand drawing...but times here and there, the music drowned out the voices.
Still, you did well with this.

P.S. Geno rules!

Cool... but I couldn't understand almost all of it

Like I said, It was cool, but I had to listen to it three times before I could start to understand it. If you ever have the time, and it is not too much trouble, could you put subtitles in?
