The Composer is an animation following the life cycle of a young boy to adulthood, who uses the purity of music to heal wounds, and inspire the hearts of others.

I sincerely hope you enjoy this, it has taken a lot of work.
Thanks Tom Fulp for your fantastic support, and Francine Louise for your voice talent

The Bernstein quote is quite true.

Nobody's pain is greater than your own. But it's nice to be able to share sometimes. Music is the language of empathy.

Where's the saddness?

I must be ignorant because I don't see the emotion in this or the sadness. The kid's parents fight, he cries and plays his piano outside. Some old dude comes by and wants head so he put some money on his piano. Continuing he continues aging as his fame goes down to zero, where his music is taken over by heavy metal. Finally he does the same thing for the a small child who is crying because his guitar is his only friend. Finally he puts money in the kid's guitar case asking for head as well. I don't understand the logic in it, he's crying even though he eventually becomes famous and then slowly dies down. I tried very hard not to laugh because the attempt at trying to creature a melancholy environment was not successful. Furthermore I don't understand how it's moving or compassionate. I might sound like an asswhole but i'm trying to be honest with you.

When continues playing the keys as a kid, the keys aren't pressed anymore.
When he is conducting the group of musicians his left hand continues to morph oddly.
I will say that the music in the bar was quite amazing.
The flash was beautiful but the saddness was not there.
Great Job anyway!

That man needs diapers for his eyes!

Animation was alright, drawing gfx were quite good. I could see what you were trying to do with the idea, but I dunno didn't really interest me that much >_<

I myself am a pianist, you did good with the music :)

Could have been perfect ....

Animation was terribly good, music was interresting (it had to be) but things kept me out of the excitement. First it was cheesy as hell it did even let that horrible taste in my mouth. Second, little details didn't make any sences : like when the fuck would a beggar give his money to some crying piano underage suburban emo instead of buying crack out of it. And piano artists ain't like pop singer they can't be "out" they are playing instrument there is always a "market" and finally what about the Death Metal show across the street is that trully a complement of classical music a.k.a. piano ? Did all the composer's 80 years old fan went to trash on heavy metal instead of watching the concert ?

Good animation tho, beside .... are you Jewish ?

I like the story, it's inspiring, it kinda speaks of reality, in which sometimes you're up and sometimes you're down. That being the case for musicians. Trends also does have influence on music, and has an impact on the kind of music you are promoting, that's true. I'm just glad that he didn't copycat Kurt Cobain's style. lol.

I didn't mind the graphics, it's cool, as long as it's original. The only negative thing I could comment is the speed. Some important scenes occurred too fast, and I kinda miss the important details in the process.

Overall, it's good! Keep up the good work!
