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.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great animation, but...

Honestly, the thing didn't make much sense. I'm still sort of confused, but that might be because I don't feel like looking for symbolism. And it'd be nice if I was convinced more that fire boy would really rage that hard over water girl. Still a 10 for the animation work though. Nice job.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

We hope to see more Sparker and Aquanna :)

The animation is wonderful and the characters are precious (design, movements, expression, even without face). it's a bittersweet ending, not precisely happy, not exactly sad.

You would totally do more animations with Sparker and Aquanna.

I love it! The video is smooth, the audio is great and the "story" always brings a trar to my eyes. I hope to see more from you in the future!

This is incredibly touching, the animation is perfect and I also like the idea of the "fire boy" and "water girl".

Man is made of METAL!

lol thats what I got from it. anyway, animation blew me away, Your efforts defintaly paid off. Personally not a fan of flashes that have no audio beyond a light piano track, however the animations more than overshadowed that. reat job all around. Cant wait for more.
