In 2008, when I and my then boyfriend were stranded in St. Louis after various unfortunate misadventures and having a rough time, we listened to a lot of Ludo - in particular "The Broken Bride." It really lifted our spirits with its quirkiness, and became something of an "us" rock opera.

Later, sometime between the point we got engaged and the point when we decided to elope, I wanted to illustrate the narrative central to the album: a man so dedicated to his dead wife that he made a time machine to attempt her resurrection, only to overshoot and get attacked by pterodactyls in a prehistoric wasteland. Using our impending marriage as an excuse for some hubristic self-insertion, I made this piece featuring my soon-to-be-husband as the protagonist of the story.

Note: I did this nearly a year ago on my duct-taped together archaic desktop that might have been cool in 1999 - and without having any real idea how to use graphics editors or Flash. The majority of the thing was illustrated via MS Paint and it has no actual animation as such, but I nevertheless feel it does a good job (however clumsily) of conveying the vision I had for it. Sorry its small size and loader-less-ness - I hope to eventually rework it when I finish the sequel someday. ( I sadly don't have any of my working copies after the death of the aforementioned computer... -just my 100+ .bmps- so reconfiguring things to look cleaner, preload and suck less will take a bit of doing)

Props

This felt more like an animatic than an animation, but was definitely well made. I'm not a fan of this type of music, but it married well with the images.
Good job!

such a touching story

i hope he can get back to his wife. but would it cause a paradox if he saves her from death? because if she dies not he wont build the time machine and then he had never rescued her. now im confused and sad, waiting for the sequel.

Wow.........................

Now that was a very emotional video.
Although I think there could have been more to the animation.
Also, what does this loop?
Can't wait to see how part 2 comes out.

Marvelous

Very well drawn, and the still frame pictures actually add a bit of beauty to the work. I'm very glad I decided to watch this.

Amazing

the animation is amazing especially since it was on paint, also the fact that there's no NG intro is a good thing, because then its on a loop :D
