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.)

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?

Love it!

Probably one of my favorite flashes. I personally think it's a beautiful piece, trying to find what you want in life and whether you fail or succeed happens to play a big part in my life. I think everybody wishes they could be doing what they love.

The graphics/animation are very good, as well as all the audio and just the general overall quality.
Like I said, favorite of mine. 10/10 5/5 ^^

Perfect.

I don't want to say what's been said before- it's amazing. I loved the movement, the design, the colors; it's all perfect.
Heck, I watched it twice in a row.
