Four very short animations on the subject of being alone. The style is supposed to mimic traditional hand-drawn animation. This actually came about because I wrote a piece of music that ended up being very emotionally evocative and I wanted to add some sort of visual component, but then it took on a life of its own. Kinda sorta.

FYI - there are some syncing issues, depending on your computer's processing power. It should still play, but the timing might be a little off.

Wow! 10,000 views and a daily feature award, all in less than 24 hours! Man, the internet is crazy! Thank you to everyone who gave up four minutes of their life to check it out, and especially to those who contributed a review. It's great to hear that people found it to be meaningful on some level.

There have been a lot of requests for me to post the song. At the moment, the music file is chopped into pieces for Flash purposes and also it doesn't have an ending. But rest assured, I will try to make something available as soon as I get the chance. Thanks everyone for indulging my weird artsy-ness!

Well

That was interesting. Hehe, well done. By the way, the music was pretty interesting. Kinda reminded me of a mix between dance of the sugar-plum faries and runescape. (I'm sure some of you reading this know what I mean). Where did you get your inspiration for this?

The music is actually a new arrangement of a piece I wrote several years ago. I think I was listening to a lot of Danny Elfman at the time. But I also listen to a lot of Tchaikovsky and play a lot of video games, so you could be right. Thanks for the review!


wow

nice animation 10/10



A profoundly emotional animation.

You have created a masterful piece of work here. The scenes that are presented are simplistic, yet they carry with them such a deep and powerful message. Each scene is wonderfully drawn and animated, and the music accompanying each of them seems to fit perfectly and truly conveys the emotional nature of the subject. This video intrigued me and truly made me think. Thank you, and I hope that you continue to produce such quality work in the future.



amazing

Finally some talent around here. Really great work, very thought out and arranged. Excellent music choice, and very original overall animation. Keep it up.

Sad...

Oh my. I haven't been so emotianally moved in a long time. This reminds me of myself, how I am always alone. Thanks. I don't know why, but this splendid animation is awesome, and It's syncedwith the animation. Good job.
