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
I relate to the message that you're aiming to express in this short.
I say so because I am a musician, yet I have suffered, and am still suffering from the abuse and discrimination my parents and other people around me gave me, particularly in order to discourage me from my calling.
The animation is a product of its time, and it is quite alright. Piano playing in some parts seems a bit unnatural -- the body is often rigid while playing, rather than fluid (as it should be).
The music is where I have to gash points, I'm afraid. It felt a tad uninspiring, and for something along the scale of a person's life story and mission, I always look for the spectacular. This wasn't. To me it gave the feel of something off a soap opera.
My mission is to inspire -- thoroughly inspire. Even with all the limitations I have, I yearn to capture hearts. The animation certainly did set out to do this, despite its few limitations. The music, I know it's no Meat Loaf or Enya or Howard Shore. However, it could still do with a lot more grandeur -- and this really threw off the balance for me.
Decent animation, nice effects. The colors are okay. The music is a good point. But, gosh, it's so "mellow", so much melodrama. This is not in my likings. I don't care if people think this is useless, this is my opinion.
NEEDS MORE EXPLOSIONS
I'm into art but this was emo
This is a great piece of art.
Your drawing and animation skills are excellent, and I found this to be extremely influential and moving overall.
That being said, I truly abhor the choice in music that you used. Being a fairly decent pianist myself and coming from a family full of musicians, the music choice for this just didn't do it for me.
Keep up the great work!
a tearjerker, such nice, awww.... xD
