This is the story of Katan, a little aztec critter who works as a stonemason on huge pyramid projects. He's an eager, talented employee who beleives strongly in what the project stands for, putting in endless overtime to get things done.

When a less committed, self-serving employee hatches a plan to steal the soul jewel of the temple, the mysterious crystal skull, Katan finds himself under blame and attack from the very monument he helped to create.


I started making this toon November 2008 and finally exported it in January 2010.
Various delays, injuries, graduations and jobs made it hard to focus on for a lot of the time- but it is fairly safe to say that it took a year to make... Which also accounts for the style changes and quality progression evident throughout the four mins of play time ;)

Thanks for watching- and thanks again to Newgrounds for letting me upload such large movie files

Excellent, but really?

I loved this animation, but South American indigenous societies having wheels? Heresy! The fact they built such massive societies without the wheel is too cool to ignore. :P That said, I do so love this animation and have watched it many times.

Well done for your first animation!

Very well made, poor story line but ratings to me are to improve performance.

Ten out of ten, but would expect a better marriage between visual and plot in the future.

Your mastery of expression was one of the single most amazing displays I've had the good judgement of clicking on during my time on this website.

Few things are as deserving of praise.
if I cant find room to critique, or choose not to, then you know you've done more than just a good job. Biggest 10/10 I've ever given. If I could make the 5/5 bigger, I would.
