Edit: Wow, thanks for the front page everyone :)

The first of a 10 part series set to the music of RushJet1's E.P "Out There" which when completed will hopefully be a complete short film. Made entirely without the pixel tool, this is my first ever attempt at pixel animation. I never realised just how much of a time consuming process pixel animation was until i undertook this project. Tells the tale of Astro, a young squid summoned to war after a fellow squids ship crashes into a city, id leave a real commentary but id like the film to tell the story itself. More to come.


It was great

Looking forward to the rest of the parts - by the way, you can get the "Out There" track and see all of RushJet1's other stuff (I particularly liked the Muse covers) here: http://nsf.4x86.com/?p=music



You did a wonderful job with all the pixels X3
This is just awesome, thanks for sharing!


I didn;t read your commentary till after i watched the video and i was lost for most of it, i love the pixel animation and the chip tunes adds a nice vibe, all around it was a job well done besides the hard to follow story

Not bad

It was a little hard to follow and sometimes the pixels were too big to distinguish certain details but I can see a lot of effort went into making this and it definitely intrigued me. I can't say it was perfect but it was doing a whole lot more for pixel animation than most and overall I think it was rather effective. Try to have main objects in a different colour from the background and maybe try smaller pixels for your audience's ease. Other than that keep it up, and I look forward to seeing the resolution. 4/5, 7/10.

People find this review helpful!

good stuff

this film really reminded me of the game Out of theis World, perhaps the art style is all, but it was the first thing i thought of, looking foward to the next

Gerkinman responds:
