After three months of being in intense labor, I've finally given birth to my chronically overweight baby, affectionately named: The Moon Guardian.

Mad props to the wonderful (and infinitely more talented than myself) people who helped me produce this short animation: Thanks to Hnilmik, Apatheria, and Natalie Van Sistine for their beautiful vocals, Zach Striefel for scoring and doing the sound design for this bad boy, Matt Greenholt for digitally painting and helping me fully realize the backgrounds, and last but not least, Chris (MC) Hartlaub for turning the bad dialogue I presented him and transformed into something golden. Without them, none of this would have happened.

I animated this in flash, composited in After Effects and edited in Premiere.

Also, if for whatever reason the video doesn't work, watch it here:

I throughly enjoyed this to every end from the music to the story and the style of animation you deserve some great praise for this!
