The story behind this flash is highly personal. Let's just say the back story is, a boy breaks up with his girlfriend. She is saddened by this event, and decides that the only way she can deal with her grief is to run away. Before she leaves, she decides to send him one last text message, which is this flash. Maybe to remind him what he is losing. Maybe to remind herself what she is leaving behind.

In any case, I made this flash extremely fast. I haven't slept in about 34 hours now, so forgive the crappiness of this. I wanted to make it while the emotions were fresh in my head, and this is the result. The song is Augustana-Boston

Good movie

My only real problem with this was the music, because the song is played over the store radio at my job, and the last thing I want to do is think about work on my day off. Anyway, I enjoyed the art direction, except for the text messages...I feel like that could have been done differently.

Plus, considering you haven't slept and you made this in a really rough time I can empathize. Go get some sleep and then make something amazing!

I have only slept for 3 hours since I submitted this! I've had to work XD

They used to play this song at my job too. Probably where I heard it in the first place. hehe

well im going through a tough time in my life and this really touched me just the intro had me thinking great job and dont listen to what everyone else says it was GREAT!


stormoftara responds:

Thank you so much. Life can be tough, as I know oh so well.

This animation wasn't so great, but thanks for the compliments. I'm going to eventually try to make a better animation that I don't complete in 24 hours. IT WILL BLOW PEOPLE'S MINDS!

meh

The quivering animation of still pictures got old last year. I like the audio, but it needs more than just the lyrics on screen. Maybe start with the text message (though it's a little hackneyed) then develop the story instead of rigidly sticking to the lyrics. The art itself has potential but I want to see more animation!

Thanks, but that's kinda my style. I hate still pictures so I want them to move. Thanks for the tips!

I probably could, but then it wouldn't have the raw emotion in it.

I'll do a better more refined animation someday, thank you for your comment!
