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!

It's the same sort of animation you've used before in previous movies. I ain't saying that's good or bad, but just sayin' the obvious. Most will either criticize or praise for this, but I'll do neither since each is easy. I will say that it's an emotional bit of work you've done and is unexpected from a guy who makes some very good and funny pieces. It's defintely a cutesy concept and kinda tugs the heartstrings, but I can't say I've had the pleasure of being so moved as others have or will by this. As always, I look to seeing what you're gonna do next and hope to see something new in a league with this. Although if it's something we've already seen, I'll still watch regardless.

Very nice

I haven't seen any of your work since The Hobbit Act 1, and sadly I haven't really enjoyed any them past 2004. It probably comes down to your refusal to move away from tweening and your past inability to do anything other than parody.

That said, I felt this piece was very well-done and emotionally touching. Your style worked incredibly well with the simple story and the music itself. It's too bad you're down with being Legendary Frog, because I'd love to see more of this from you. (That is, creativity.)

At least it's very fitting as your last published work here.

I can relate...

I know what it's like to love someone who can never love you back. This is tragic and beautiful.
