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.

amazing!

Damn, dont piss off a fire elemental, Ragnaros of azeroth eat your heart out!
very fluid, very well drawn, this is a masterpiece, with the absence of voice, or even any facial features other than eyes you demonstrated alot of emotion. A trait that fellows of pixar do alot, i had the same feel here, and think you should consider a professional field if you have not already.

in short, this was EPIC!

Great.

The message, the animation and the music are melting into a piece of art I'm only experiencing a few times a year here at newgrounds. This has to be rewarded with frontpage and if not, trust me, this is precious nevertheless.

Absolutely Phenomenal

This is among the best submissions I have ever seen on Newgrounds. The entire team has clearly worked their hardest to make this as good as they can, and they succeeded.

The animation is beautiful. Sparker and Aquanna really do look like they're made of fire and water, and they move like they're real creatures. And, of course, they're absolutely adorable. That horrible robot looks fantastic, too; really scary and destructive-looking.

The music by Neil Bly is simplistic, but it suits the quiet and melancholy mood of the film perfectly. You don't need a whole orchestra when a piano and drums will do just fine.

"Alight" clearly took hours and hours and hours of work from its staff, and I congratulate you on finally finishing it. Hopefully, the rest of the NG community will love it as much as I do.

Perfect!

WOW! Just as you say, this is unique, i've never seen something like this in Newgrounds! Congratulations!

It would be REALLY awesome if you do a sequel, because this one was too short...
Abd if you make a sequel, it would be the doble hard work.

But still, i hope this get's to frontpage, because it deserves it.
