Working with the animation students at Brigham Young University has been a real treat. After much blood, sweat, and tears, we have finally completed Alight. We spent countless hours animating Sparker, the "fire boy," and Aquanna the "water girl," to get the effects and character animation looking just right. To us, they're almost real-life characters by now. We hope you enjoy this unique little piece of Flash animation, mixed with After Effects compositing.

wow...just wow, I was blown away by this piece, the art and the music meshed wonderfully and the story they told was heart warming, I was absolutly overwhelmed when Isaw this and I literally cried when the water creature was stomped

Bravo I say, Bravo

Pretty good. This movie reeks of polish, you laid it on so thick. The masking over the fire is just one of the ways that you smoothed this over repeatedly. The music is well-chosen and the animation is smooth and done well, too. The characters are cute, but I feel like this definitely would have been better with sound effects. I also feel like the whole romance thing was rather abstract and pointless, as was the ending. But what really bothered me was that you barely animated the water character at all. The movie opens up with her, but she leaves fairly quickly and never returns. One last complaint is that when the castle started flying in, I feel like the animation went from being artistic to just plain showy. It took away from the final product.

Other than that I really like this. It's just too bad it's so short.
