This is my final for my sophomore year of animation at KCAI. The idea for this came about a few years ago. I was doing a flash animation class over the summer with a friend. The teacher Bill wanted us to animate a fable. Instead of use an existing one, I made my own story. After that day I never went back to that class and never did any animation that summer either. The thought was still in my head and since I already had the story board laid out it made things a little easier. All of the animation in hand drawn frame by frame in flash with a wacom tablet. The camera movements and stuff was done using after effects CS3. The music is "To Our Surprise" from the Kingdom Hearts Soundtrack by Yoko Shimimura. All I ask is that you watch the whole thing, its only 1 minute, you can do it. Leave me any reviews you have and enjoy.

[EDIT] Holy Friggin Crap! Wow! The front page, this is so awesome! I hoped to get the front page before I graduate from KCAI but I didn't expect this one to do so well. Thanks everybody who voted and gave me great reviews.

Very nice

The animation and music are both really nice . The attetion to details was great . They way the dragonfly rubbed its back "feet" and the wing flaping was a good touch .
Also the plane hiting the eagle was quite unxpected , i was expecting the dragonfly to save it's life .

Great job ! Keep it up

Thanks, I spent a lot of time on that dragonfly trying to make it move more natural and generally bug-like. Im glad to hear me hard work payed off!
