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

Wow.

The action sequences were intricately done and I loved the multifarious weapons. The only flaw I saw was that Katan's right ear was cut off, but then in the next scene his left ear was cut off and the right one grew back... That is very minor, however, and does not derogate from the greatness of the movie. Even though it was clearly impossible, your flash still contains some verisimilitude and I think that is due to your talent as both an artist and a story-teller.

Quite enjoyable.

I must say, im a bit suprised at the overly positive reveiws this work has been getting. I agree that the animation is done very well and the sound is great, but the story lacks greatly. I am still a fan, but hopefully you can make animations like this with better stories, we all know that it would be a masterpiece.
