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.)

During the animation so many words came into my mind to describe this, but now I´m speechless.

great. wow. *clapclapclap*

it´s somehow cool that everyone in the story has white hair :)

I'll be working on varying my character designs on my next project for sure. It'll help make the story easier to understand for more hectic animations.

Ok, I'll say it.

I love how this fits into the whole Trip series. And yet is it's own story/music video. I love how you snuck character development in their. Even with chars that wasn't the focus of the story. I got a good feel for your universe. Man to think my bodies immune system is full of hot chicks with dreams of their own. Neat. Really good job as always.


Skaijo responds:

Proof you saw the whole series: This. I appreciate you taking the TRIP to see all the animations (HAR HAR HAR). Since this is more or less the last Trip animation I made, I wanted to do something different--so I didn't end it with a bang, but just some splice of life insight. I'm glad you liked it!

Really good.

I love how there's such a story behind this, what could be just a music video. If one really wanted, they could turn the idea of a girl wanting to compose into a movie. (I'm just saying)

Great song as well. Btw, really nice your one of the people who actually go and reply to comments. Most authors don't even care.


Skaijo responds:

It's hard not to sound fake when you comment because sometimes your saying the same thanks in just a different format, over and over and over again. xD The occasional troll helps break things up every now and again. But I do appreciate thoughts like these exceedingly more. <3
