This was a project I've been working on for about a year and a half. I'm happy to finally be able to share the final product. The goals of this work were to improve my ability to make backgrounds--because if you know me (or have seen any of my past works/excuses) --they aren't my strongest suit. :3

So what I tried to do was make a mellow episode of a series that mostly only had over-the-top action scenes. This would give me grounds to strengthen an ability to make something beautiful to look at, as well as fun to watch.

***To put the story simply: Ilu would love to be a conductor when she grows up. Likewise, her friends would love to be great artists, dancers, and even skilled musicians. But the daily mechanical grind of their lives don't really lead to any real chances to find that love they're searching for. By the end of the animation, neither Ilu nor any of her friends reach their goals--but based on Ilu's passion, they all get a bit closer somehow. And that was the kind of animation I wanted to make. ***

What you see here is what I'm honored to share with you.

(I'd love supportive comments just as much as the next guy, but if you have something critical to add, please--PLEASE--do so too. Thought-rich comments appreciated above all else.)

Awww! X3

I love this song! :D The flash is amazing too! I can't help but watch it over and over again. XD

This is just a theory, but do the people have white hair because they're supposed to symbolize white blood cells? Like in the trip series, there's Unmei who has to keep fighting against the drug, so maybe that's it? ._.; Correct me if I'm wrong please. I like knowing when I sound like an idiot. XD

You're theory sounds good to me. There's so little time to through cannon into these kinds of projects that I don't discredit any theories really. In fact, I'm really interested in what the viewers think are going on too.

Thanks for leaving a reveiw!

My Goodness

I love this. I liked the style you used, the mix of animation and pics. The story was great! It was awesome to watch all of their own stories unfold, and see the humor in each part. The music was really happy.. Overall, it was really awesome. :D

It's beautiful to watch

Even more than once, I don't get tired of watching this video. I love the additions of humour and how each person tries to attain their goal. Another thing I enjoyed was the incorporation of both photographs and drawn animation. This video will definitely stay as one of my favourite of my favourites :)
