The movie maps the journey of a magical train through surreal landscapes as a metaphor for a poet's reveries. It captures the state of dreaming or imagination that has a constant sense of flow like travelling in a train or reclining beside the eternal rise and fall of the ocean. That space which is full of journeying and forgetfulness...



Rated 5 / 5 stars

It remembers me a bit of Spirited Away. This is the kind of artwork that I come to see in Newgrounds. The music fits perfectly the animation.

CentreofGravityfilms responds:

Wow thanks !!

Like when Chihiro Ogino was given a train ticket to go see Yubaba sister.

A production worth 5 Stars

This is the best animation I have ever seen on Newgrounds, and you actually mixed in the music quite well. I was ifffy on how the high amount of symbolism, but you mixed it well, the voice acting (If that was someone working for you) did his part very well and it all is just about one of the best things I've seen on this site.
