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. :)

masterpeice

I love when a man (or two) can create something that touches my heart. When the moral is there but subtle. When you know a genius is behind it.

Great film

the animation was great and consistent in fluidity and you were able to develop the characters successfully and I really enjoyed this.

You should submit this to a film festival if you hve not already this is a very well made peice of work.
