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.

I don't know why but this one is so touching for me


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Slow down and breathe.

As a student pursuing animation as a future career I really enjoyed this piece although at the end I was not sure if I was hungry for more. The animation was smooth to the point where it was beautiful, and the music set an amazing mood; but I feel like the animation happened way to fast.

At the beginning of this piece it is clear the the fire boy just meets the water girl, after seeing her death he decides to destroy the machines. I felt like there was not enough time spent developing their relationship for him to actually relate or if you will feel such sorrow, in result I did not feel like I had enough attachment
to relate to either characters (especially Sparker in this film)

But all in all it was a very good animation project. Please do make this into a series, I am sure you have will gain several enthusiastic fans!

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Not THAT good...

Maybe it's me, but i found the story very unoriginal and it didn't touch me at all. It's kinda short too and the event are way too close...

I give it a 6 because it's high quality animation, but not much more cuz it's short.
