The idea for this movie came form a random doodle I did of a little turtle standing by a rock, and a single heart above his head. The image was very cute and touching, but also very sad... How could a rock love him back? I had the idea, but didn't have the urge to animate it... until I heard this song. A friend had sent it to me and after a few listens I said to myself "This is the song I'm gonna use for the turtle movie!" The original idea was more of a comedy, but the song mellowed it way out.

The turtle, Beep, is named after the song. Now THAT'S adorable.

I was a little limited by the length, so I didn't get all my ideas in. But I hope you guys like it for what it is!

A+ ftw

The only thing I would change would be getting rid of the hand. I think it would have been better to just see the turtle come back and the rock not be there.

Very well done

the combination of the simplified artstyle, music selection, and overall theme of the animation makes for high quality viewing. i enjoyed the construction paper cutout feel of the textures you used, it gave everything a soft, childlike feel. The song was emotional, and the turtle portrayed his part perfectly, Excellent work from an excellent flash artist! Great Job!

Poor turtle :(

Nice animation, cute idea. But I felt bad for the turtle in the end.

Why does it always have to be the "evil" human who destroys the animals life? In most cases it's other animals doing that :P Aside from that I liked the concept and the song. The animation was below your standards - still worlds better I could ever hope to accomplish so I'll leave it with that. I really loved the song - your flash movies have always been a good source for new music/artists - still.. concentrate on your webcomic and/or interesting spoofs rather than melodramatic cliche love stories - they're nice but your style is more befitting the humorous genre ;)
