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.

Beautiful art!

Just kidding, it's not so great. I just thought I should repeat what everyone else is saying. In all honesty, this is terribly overrated. Reading the comments, you'd think it's the most amazing thing in the world, when in reality, it's an animation of nothing... ~~WEST SIDE~~

Absolutely Gorgeous

From start to finish, this is among one of the most beutiful student animated shorts I've ever seen. The feeling of collaboration is impressive, but not obtrusive. There's a very cohesive 'voice' to this piece. The effects used for both the fire and water were beautiful, and played well off of one another (steam). And the design of the mechanical skull building itself at the end really blew me away. That was a very neat design.

Fantastic work, all.
