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.)

wow

Nice, really not too depressing, nor happy, or funny, but a Beautiful balance, you nailed it. The animation was good, and you nailed your goal of good backgrounds.

The story could have been displayed better, then again the chaos of the story make you think about it even more, like any well done abstracted painting.

The only thing I even came close too dislikeing was the angry/grudge mouth you kept drawing. Seemed cheap compared to everything else, however it was pretty funny, so you are good there.

I can't really complain about nothing, I just hope i get to see your future work ^_^

Pure talent

You are amazing at making movies, this I can be sure of. I liked how you used pictures of real stuff, and then put your animated part into it, and made it look like they were reacting and using the real pictures.
Quick question: Is this supposed to be you, or just a fun animation?
Anyway, I loved the movie, lots of great stuff. :D :P :)
Another question: I wouldve put this the other question but im too lazy to actually do it. How long did it take you to make this?

I guess I'll be the first to start.

This IS what I'm searching for. It is something that is alive, exciting, but also deep and humorous. Its a slice of life, something that I had always interpret in my comics in every aspect.

You are one of several people that I prized greatly for works with such a meaning, so you have all my respects. Also on the side note, I do believe something like this can make Newgrounds better.
