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.

Nothing that an equaliser couldn't fix.

I understand the music track isn't the property of the animator, but a certain amount of responsibility must be taken considering the choices involved. The 'video' corresponded somewhat to the lyrics in question, and as such I think it's important that both clarify eachother. A simple tweak to the appropriate frequencies in any basic equaliser would have fixed the seemingly incomprehensible decibels for the vocals. This piece of work takes me back to 'Ignorance Is Bliss' which offers a good comparative 'how to' observation to reflect this piece of work upon.

this was okay.

I rate this a six the music was great but the voice effects kinda suckish, art I feel the same on but the beat I could used to. Keep trying.
