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.

Ehh

I've seen a lot of better videos. The lyrics seem kind of stupid, and overall, this video is rather pointless, but it's very catchy, and it makes you want to dance to it. I like the song, but it doesn't seem to match up with the video at times. Otherwise, I really do enjoy this video, but it could use some work to it...

audio

tho it's been said, you could still use some work on the audio tracks. like, for example, turn down the music or at least turning up the lyrics track. it seems like it would be pretty funny afterwards. gl

SIZE&SOUND&SUBTITLES

OK, how could you possibly squeeze this wonderful animation AND this catchy song with nice quality to 1,5MB?????
But you got already enough of praise in other reviews so i will only complain (ok, there isn't much to complain but one thing is quite important) - as I said, the sound is in nice quality but drums are beating too loud and the voices are very tough to hear. But this could be easily repaired by adding subtitles and than i will probably vote 5 for this submission.
