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.

Real Good....

Congratulations on this movie, it's amongst my favourites already, also, it's the only movie I've seen more than two times in a row without growing tired of it.
I, too, am a big fan of Mario RPG, actually it's one of my very favourite games of all time. That song may not be yours, but there could not be any better movie for it than this. It feels real good to see such a good movie made from such a good game.

Keep up the great work!

Ah, what a game...

I remember pulling all-nighters just playing this game. So many memories...Anyways, let's move from nostalgia to the review. If there was one thing that you might want to do, you could have out in a subtitles option; It was pretty hard to understand during the rap part. Also, maybe Could you post a link to a place to download the song? I'd be much obliged. Keep up the good work, I look forward to it.
