This is a short film I made for my assignment at uni. The unit was called Lines In Time and was based around synchronising animation to music using predominantly lines, hence the lack of fill and shapes and such. The music I used is called Justice Day by Martin Werner.

Here's a link to his Newgrounds profile http://robomanus.newgroun ds.com/

I went a little over the 30 second threshold :D The story is based around the world loneliest lightning bugg, a species concept I created for another animation, and follows his journey as he finds his place amoung the clouds. Theres a lot of love on here so I hope you enjoy XD

*Updated* This is a better quality version although flash still isnt working so I cant add a preloader. Sorry guys

**Just to clarify, he doesnt commit suicide. Without dying, he flies his way into heaven because the world he was living in was not a world he wanted to reside in. We went to live his days with his family among the clouds of the afterlife. No deaths except for his family of course.

artsy fartsy

I have to say I like the idea for doing the whole black scratchpad style b/c u never really see it too much. and the art was between simplistic stick figuers and detailed trees. alot of simple lines but with a great score and epic story. However u have a donnie darko ending . did the protaganist die and join his family? is the end really a suicide. b/c you didnt build up enouph dramatic sub theme to let me really conclude this. all in all your second inverse of colors being into the light again and your'happily ever after' suggest eithor a totally amoral suicide and says that it was a happy thing or that your just retarded and suggested that "its just a story, who cares, as long as theres a happy ending'. let me know if my analysis is unfair.

Beautiful but something is "bugging" me...

Did that bug committed suicide? What kind of message is that?! Anyways, it was a beautiful video, so I give it a 10 out of 10!
