This film was completed before I started work on Tarboy, and I figured it was about time I packaged and released it. It was my third year animation project in college and the first larger scale short film I completed. It was also the first project completed that Hania and I collaborated on.

The production of this was an absolute nightmare to say the least. Working on this project was the reason I decided to do Tarboy completely in Flash.

My overall pipeline for animation looked something like this: 1.Draw images on paper. 2. Scan into Photoshop for digital paint. 3. Bring into morphing software for head turns 4. Export into Flash for character animation. 5. Export into After Effects for compositing. 6. Export into Premier for Editing.
I'm thinking this will receive a mixed response, but at this stage I'm glad it's finally out.

Hope you enjoy it, check out the bonus features if you want to learn more about my messy pre-production process.

Beautiful

The art was so unique and the musical score was brilliant. I would love to see more of your work posted here at newgrounds. I think people here really appreciate the time and effort that goes into such art.

Absolutely Outstanding

I thought the Apples might have signified the acceptance of entering Heaven, joining their ways, taking it would mean to join them, the character (a woman i assume) refused, so she was froced down into Purgatory. The other woman she saw with the apple in Purgatory, probably ment another chance to join Heaven, and then when she refused again, the chain forced her to join Heaven, but not on her own terms.

This has been a moving, beautiful work of art, i suggest you enter it into some form of art show... It's you would get an award for sure...

The Animation was absolutely amazing, like other posters, i agree that this was a tad short, but i understand that this work of art would have taken a fair while to create.

Congratulations, you did an Absolutely Outstanding job!

OH MAI GAWD

This animation was AMAZING! Holy shit! As the movie began I see the art, so I expected bad animation, NOPE, you animated this very well!
As the animation went I expected it to be a super short, NOPE. It was a decent amount of time.

I am so glad you brought this beautiful piece of work to the table, it really is amazing and I hope there will be more like it.

Hmm.

So the character, is an Angel, being purged. The ring around his/her neck is his/her's halo, as a mark, that he/she is banned from heaven, I guess. The cannon sent him/her down to purgatory. But I have no idea what he/she got grabbed and pulled into. And no idea of the reason of the apples. But all in all, great work. Abit hard to understand.

I think I must read abit more religious stuff to understand this. And I think I might need to think abit more "deep" about it if you know what I mean. Like goths poetries, those are deep.

interesting

the story line is what confused me... i see halos above their heads, as for the main character, it appears to be around his neck... and he was blasted down to what looks like a desserted earth. i dont understand the apples either. music went well. I do appreciate your effort put into it.. and... superb job. :)
