Here's to living for another year.

This was actually made waaay back when for the NATA 2012 open round. The theme was "discovering time travel".
I didn't have it finished in time and had to abandon it to move onto the following rounds, but now I FINALLY got around to finishing it once and for all! and since there was no more deadline, I decided to spend an extra month or two on it to give it a bit more polish.

This was the first time i'd tried drawing in an anime'esque' type style since i was about 9 haha, I was interested to see how it would work.

I also had to cut quite a few parts out of the final animation to meet the deadline at the time and never got around to putting them back in ha. So the pacing is a little faster than i'd like and some character backstory was left out, but now It's time to move on to other things ;p

Hope you like it anyway!

I wanted to upload this on new years eve but I had some problems with converting the file for NG.
So HUGE thanks to DuDuL for converting it for me! don't know what I would have done without your help ;)

You can also watch it on youtube! (remove the spaces)

Reliving his memories for one last time, just to see his friends again. Really shows you your childhood was the best time ever. This really seems less to be about the art, and more about the story and idea. I'm a sukcer for good stories, be they a short (like this one) or long enough to take years to finish telling. The movement animation was a bit rough, and his mother's face seem disproportionate after she looked down, but for the most part for a FBF done mostly in other programs this looked amazing. The soft, almost watercolour shaindg of it really gave it the look of a memory or a dream. I've been watching you for a while Cat, and I'm hoping to get to see more stuff like this.

not even kidding, the first time through i thought it was weird. the kid suddenly talking about time travel like that, crying on his mom, and the awkwardly gay moment at the end when the two boys were walking with each other. then at the very end, it all made sense. the power of the message you just sent me made me shed tears for a moment. Beautiful. 5/5 and favorite.
