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.

On sum real ish this is my #1 Fave :) !!!!!

Wow man....this was definitely one of the best submissions in my taste/style. As a long time fan of Rap/RPG/Mario this has hit me str8t in da heart, lol. I myself am an unsigned rapper and me and my boy Stephen from 2 band called "Athena's Fury" and "The Silver Medal" in da Boogie Down Bronx have a sik-wit-it video game rap of our own that I personally believe you can do some off da hook ish wit :)
When I saw this I creamed myself, lol no homo. Even if the music itself ain't yours, I personally believe you gave the "life essence" to the music by perfectly implementing simple yet impactful imagery to the ambience of the track.
As some great philosophers have pointed out "If it ain't broken don't fix it." That goes for this animation 100%, sometimes it's the simple things in life that make it more worthwhile, and in all honesty.....even if you "tweaked" the grafx and imagery....I believe nothing shall compare to this original masterpiece.
Keep up tha good work and I hope maybe sometime in the near future you can give a listen to me n my boyz Vid Game Rap and possibly hook it up wit your stylistic magic :)
PS: Wow......I can't seem to stop replayin this.....hahahahaha!!!!!!!

Love, Peace, and Chicken Grease :)

ive seen this on youtube and i love this song it's like the originial


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Random idea.

With this song in my cellphone it makes drawing different versions of Geno even more fun. Geno is awesome. Mario is a rap-artist. Bowser is a maniacal power player. Mallow is too cute to be ignored. Peach is a Damsel who can whoop your... kick your butt.


Rated 5 / 5 stars
