The Love I'm Searching 4

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This was a project I've been working on for about a year and a half. I'm happy to finally be able to share the final product. The goals of this work were to improve my ability to make backgrounds--because if you know me (or have seen any of my past works/excuses) --they aren't my strongest suit. :3

So what I tried to do was make a mellow episode of a series that mostly only had over-the-top action scenes. This would give me grounds to strengthen an ability to make something beautiful to look at, as well as fun to watch.

***To put the story simply: Ilu would love to be a conductor when she grows up. Likewise, her friends would love to be great artists, dancers, and even skilled musicians. But the daily mechanical grind of their lives don't really lead to any real chances to find that love they're searching for. By the end of the animation, neither Ilu nor any of her friends reach their goals--but based on Ilu's passion, they all get a bit closer somehow. And that was the kind of animation I wanted to make. ***

What you see here is what I'm honored to share with you.

(I'd love supportive comments just as much as the next guy, but if you have something critical to add, please--PLEASE--do so too. Thought-rich comments appreciated above all else.)

Thanks you very much for the Daily 1st, Newgrounds community.
Woot for the FrontPage, NG Staff! I appreciate this so much. :3



My 9th grade vocabulary can't find words to describe how awesome that was. The first time I watched it I was just amazed with the level of polish and in love with the characters and level of depth you put into them. I always love to see when animation is built around song and lets you see what the animator sees and using it to express how they feel. I can only dream to achieve what you have with this work of art someday, and can honestly say this is one of the greatest storys I have seen in an animation on Newgrounds. Thank you.

*wishes I had a 9th grade vocabulary

You're a bit too sweet. XD But my greatest aspiration as just a hobby-animator-person was a get a review like this from a peer. <3

So for that, many thanks.


I Like how its based around The Rentals "The Love I'm Searching For" The Film and Music go together Brilliantly!!

Very nice!

Your animations are awesome, and I love how many hidden references you put into the flash. The chalkboard in the classroom says "Does it make icecream?" and the class is called "Tripology" with apicture of that pill xD
I love these animations. Kepp them up, you do very well!

Definitely different...

After watching a couple of your flashes, I enjoyed this one most of all! You definitely have talent, and can't wait to see what else you come up with!
