this was for my animation class final. we had to base our animation on an existing story and i chose the french tale "La Bonne Petite Souris" which is about a little mouse who helps a queen to retrieve her stolen daughter. this animation doesn't go exactly by the original story. i had to rewrite some parts to fit it within the music.

music by E.S. Posthumus

EDIT: thank you all for the feedback. i'm aware of some scenes being a bit too long. i know i cheaped some areas (especially the ending) but i just wanted to get this done already lol. i worked on this nonstop from sunday to 2am this morning (thursday) and i'm getting kinda sick listening to this song lol. i'll probably go back and fix some things once i recharge in month.

this should have been more popular than it is!

This is really good...the animation and colors are used cleverly and makes it all look 10 times more professional and interesting... Maybe a little more variety would make it better but I was happy with it as it is....I guess u have to put the word "Sonic" in the title for people to appreciate it...Oh well, keep up the good work!

It's good, but...

Repetition is your enemy in this one. I think that this is a great tale, but this animation could be improved. Speed up the running at the beginning, it takes too long, though I would keep the rising of the city with the sun. Next I would improve upon the fight scenes. Maybe show the mouse sneaking around and knocking out a few of the bad guys, then go to the scene where he sneaks into the tower. When the mouse gets to the room and the fight begins, I would show the punches actually hitting and the bad guy being knocked down. That would be better than the repeated "mouse strikes out and bad guy recoils". As for the ending, I would show the mouse actually handing over the babe to the queen, to show that the mission was completed. Don't let the viewer assume everything. And yes, it is possible to get all of this to fit with the music.

This is great!

A very nice storyline, and with using only 5-6 colors you made a really cool flash.
I liked the music too.
