This was an entry I did for a Australian wide competition run by the Bell Shakespeare Company and sponsored by Optus.

I actually ended up being the National Winner, which I'm really stoked about.

The object of the competition was to take one of five Shakespearean quotes and interpret them using a creative medium, be it a drawing, short film or song. The quote I interpreted was 'Disguise, I see thou art a wickedness'.

The animation's pretty sappy but I thought the judges would eat up the whole bullying angle (which they did :P) It also couldn't be more than 30 seconds long, so it was a bitch to fit the whole story in.

This version isn't the one I submitted. It's slightly longer, I guess what I'd call a 'Directors Cut'. However, only a few things are changed from the original.

Here's a link to the original and the site that hosted the comp: http://makeascenecompetit 71

I hope you enjoy it!

Amazing movie and touching moral!

This was really great and it's weird I wasn't quite expecting it to be touching. In just a short moment you really feel for the kid plus the music adds a nice even touch. Good job and you really deserve that award you won for it. Hope this wins some NG awards too.This certainly deserves to reach much higher score and I voted 5 to make sure... keep makin more!! ;)

Thanks for the kudos! Much appreciated! I'm surprised you liked the music :P I didn't want to get pinged for copyright infringement so I actually made the little piano chords at the end... and I'm no piano player... :P I might've added background music, but I really didn't have the time or the motivation to do it within the deadline.

That was really good

Sound was lacking, though it was a good animation.

Good story, plus bullies are the people who grow up and get jobs like pushing trollies.
Keep up the good work

Madtav44 responds:

Yeah, not an expert on sound. Did it all on the night before the deadline. What's lacking exactly?

i thik that you must have to put an end at this video more far (i mean ... at school)

Madtav44 responds:

It could only be 30 seconds long for the competition, and as far as I'm concerned, that's the ending. If I was going to extend it I'd probably have to do it over.
