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



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great movie (and cute characters!) but the 'Other' button doesnt work since it's WebM instead of flash.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Truly beautiful in function and form.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great, Awesome. I loved it
It's just a piece of art, bad thing is there's almost no people making good animations like you. I hope the rest of the Newgrounders start making such dedicated and awesome work

pd.: i remembered when i watched it long ago there was sort of a Menu at the beggining why did you remove that and just left the video itself?
