Hey there everyone, here is a short animation I did.

Thanks a bunch to Harry for the music, I had to give this film in time for a deadline and somehow I was left without a composer the last minute and Harry saved me by composing this awesome music within a day. I owe him half a cookie or something.

The actual animation was completed within a week, story, animatics etc took much much more time due to having trouble with coming up with a decent story. Not 100% happy with it, but I will let you judge this.

Thanks to Adam Phillips for his beautiful fire animation, imitation is the highest form of flattery ;)

EDIT- Wow, frontapage and a bunch of trophies, THANKS NEWGROUNDS!


I really love this one. The story is so nice and touching. The look is simple, yet the animation movement is really nice, and not stiff at all, even though is all just eyes and shadowy figures. A nd the overall looks is really help to built the atmosphere for this piece. I may be a newbie here and maybe did not know any better but I give this one a five votes!

This movie was both entertaining and emotional for me. This heartful story of a daughter's life ravaged by war and approaching a new hope. I spent 7 minutes thinking what to write for this last sentence. This move was so amazing that....that... no comment.



this is truly animated well. Well done, well done. (claps for all i'm worth)


That movie had a big emotional impact on me. It reminded of those movies where the girl finds a dog, and the dad doesn't want to keep it, but the dog and the girl really love each other, but then at the end the dog proves itself to be something etc. Great story though.

It was done quite well for a movie that didn't have any voice acting. The silhouette people in the red background really went together good. The stereotypical father figure was done perfectly too. I'm going to have to check out your other videos too.
