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.

not bad

the music was louder than the voices though


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


OK, how could you possibly squeeze this wonderful animation AND this catchy song with nice quality to 1,5MB?????
But you got already enough of praise in other reviews so i will only complain (ok, there isn't much to complain but one thing is quite important) - as I said, the sound is in nice quality but drums are beating too loud and the voices are very tough to hear. But this could be easily repaired by adding subtitles and than i will probably vote 5 for this submission.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


the song is fantastic

can i download a version where the lyrics are tuned a bit up and the music a bit down. it wasn't really balanced, which was a shame.

visuals cool.

keep it up.

It was kinda hard to hear the voices and you can always make the music more silent using sound recorder. Overall 7.
