WARNING: This animation is 30 MINUTES LONG. Be prepared for this.

That said, it is my personal belief that it is worth it.

A lonely, childlike moon keeps a diary of his depression, boredom, and recurring nightmares. His daily realities seem to be based on dream logic: clouds with bovine personalities, teeth with eyes and mailmen who fly in balloons. He writes about his very few friends, an invisible person, a pack of wolves, and a boy who lives in space on a garbage pile, protecting the earth from debris. The moon mopes along his 'horrible as usual' orbit, as the invisible one suffers with his own surreal identity crisis while desperately trying to reach out to the moon. Moon Diary is 7 days through the eyes of this gentle sky rock.

Based on characters and comics by Erin Tanner with animation by Curtis Randolph and Charlie Daugherty; Moon Diary (2010) creates a world with a simple, bright surface on an enigmatic, dark and maze-like core.

If you want "pause" and "chapter select," this animation is also up on YouTube. Just search for "Moon Diary" and scroll past all the Sailor Moon garbage. :)

Music by June Madrona. Check out the bicycle records store to buy June Madrona albums, or the Moon Diary DVD, which includes bonus content! http://bicyclerecords.com/store/

Amazing.

Puts an interesting twist on a lot of things we think are normal ignorable things.

This was so beautiful. I cried. It brings you through the emotional ststus of both the moon and the cloud. I would love to know where I could buy the DVD

Newgrounds doesn't seem to allow me to post hyperlinks correctly, but if you go to bicyclerecords.com and then go to the store there, the DVD is for sale.

Thank you for enjoying the animation!

That's funny because one of the main characters was a shadow of a doubt. :)
