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.

I remember that place...

Although it didn't give me that much trouble. There have been far more annoying forests in the realm of RPGs than the one in SMRPG. Still a great video though. ^_^ I only knocked graphics down a bit as they seemed slightly sub-par compared to some of your other works, but still good drawings nonetheless.

UNBELIEVEABLE. Freaking amazing

The song was awesome and the video lined up great. It made the song so much better. I listened/watched the video for a straight hour and a half. EVERYBODY WATCH

The is by far the best Super Mario RPG flash on NG. The grapics are not the best I've seen, but it is loads better than what I could have done. I really liked the song and the movie went with it perfectly. And, I don't see why people can't hear the voices. I had no trouble at all hearing the goomba and the koopa.

For what it is, it's a good movie.

Yeah, the music itself greatly overshadows the words but I realize it's not your fault so I'm not going to hold it against you, as you still managed to follow it down to the letter. However, it would be a great help to everyone bitching about not being able to understand the lyrics if you allowed an option for subtitles like "Super Mario RPG Tribute" did (I'd post a link but apparently that's prohibited, ugh).
