As usual, just barely making the deadline for NATA, haha!

This is my NATA Pro round entry, under the theme of "your own reflection".
At first I honestly had no idea what to make it on. Should I go literal with a mirror? Should it be about bettering yourself? Maybe reflecting into your past? In the end I chose to go with something that can resonate with pretty much anyone: Childhood.

But... because I was fiddling around the idea, I actually only started real animation about 12 days ago. Ever since then it's been non-stop animating, trying to get it to look as good as possible. (Let me tell you, those camera perspective shots took FOREVER.) Really wish I could've had some more time to improve the backgrounds and do some more inbetweens, but whatever~

Special shout out to my brother for being a SUPER huge help on this project. From making the music for me all the way to giving me motivation to continue, props bro!

Childhood faith back then felt the same as this. Though there were rough patches, I don't think I would ever trade it. Not only that, there was never attachments to how one should be in society or how one should pursue his future. Kids were allowed to dream big and now days...

Honestly? You're either pursuing careers you don't enjoy or are forced to follow in your parents' footsteps or something ridiculous to the point of depression.

Happiness, though, is forever going to be a choice no matter if you are old or young. Very heartwarming flash though.
