EDIT: Thanks soooo much to everyone for DAILY FEATURE!! and the awesome reviews!!! i read them all multiple times.

This is a film i have been working on for a long time. I made it for Trop Jr 2008, and it won! It's a mixture of animation techniques, stop motion animated characters with the backgrounds animated in flash. It's children's animated fairy tale and was originally made to as a picture book. It's quiet unique for newgrounds, i don't believe that anyone has ever used latex figures for a stop motion animated newgrounds submission.
I'm very sorry for the large file size and crappy audio and video quality, i had to reduce it tonnes to get the file size down.
Runtime: 5min32sec

This gave me the feels, this is amazing, i love it, 5 stars, and voted 5, i love this. i can't even say how much i love this because that would take hours. and 125 movies.

Really nice style of animation this, very dimensional. It almost looks like the main character is a model. Or is it claymation? They're very well-made! The added sketchylines and other flash effects, like tear drops, etc are an interesting touch, as are the drawnbackgrounds in layers and special effects like the lens flares. It's an incredibly detailed animation, must have taken a long time to make! Would've been nice with a bigger resolution, but I suppose that's not possible considering the size. Would've also been nice with some bigger subtitles, and a more redable font (not san-serif). As for the animation itself, it's awesome! Great work!



I see you like german expressionism yes? I love the reference to the crooked window. Probably one of my favorite videos on this website.
