EDIT: To all billion of you upset about the volume of the character "voices" compared to the actual song, send your complaints to the original creator of the song. I simply animated to the MP3 I had, and couldn't alter it in any way. There's nothing I could've done to change it, sorry.

This was a little idea I came up with practically on a whim last Sunday. I finished the whole thing in a little under a week, and I think it turned out pretty well. Back in 2004, a dude by the name of Martin Hagwell, also known as "Märta" made a song out of the BGM from the "Forest Maze" level from Super Mario RPG for the SNES. Just recently, he remixed the song he created into a full-fledged professional sounding song, titled "Rawest Forest". After finding the song by chance last weekend thanks to a YouTube video, I took a listen, and got the idea for this movie. Mario RPG is one of my absolute favorite games of ALL time, and I know it inside and out. Those who know the game as well as I do will catch all of the references scattered throughout the animation. I also used this as a test to try out some new little tricks with animation. The good majority of the movie is frame-by-frame, and yes, I know the drawings're a little crappy (I don't have a tabley, unfortunately), but I enjoyed working on it throughout my last full week of High School (YAY), and it doubled as the final for my animation class, so that's even better! Anyway, hope you enjoy it for what it is. I certainly had a ball.


Totally addicted. Every time i play this song I get an urge to sing it, just like Waltz of the Forest.

I love watching this from time to time, I also took an animation class back in highschool. I was working on a video, started skipping loads that year, but would ALWAYS go to that class before skipping, so anyways, I ended up making my movie redone and posted here on NG. If you'd be interested in it at all, it is called "Bond Gear Solid" I got in a wreck on a quad and was out of school a year, moved and switched schools. At this school I had to do a senior project to graduated, I wrote a story called "Mario's Life" Which I then made it into a NG movie too as well. If you read your comments, please be sure to check them both out, I enjoyed making them, hopefully you'd enjoy them too as well.
