Katan

Author Comments

This is the story of Katan, a little aztec critter who works as a stonemason on huge pyramid projects. He's an eager, talented employee who beleives strongly in what the project stands for, putting in endless overtime to get things done.

When a less committed, self-serving employee hatches a plan to steal the soul jewel of the temple, the mysterious crystal skull, Katan finds himself under blame and attack from the very monument he helped to create.

------------------------

I started making this toon November 2008 and finally exported it in January 2010.
Various delays, injuries, graduations and jobs made it hard to focus on for a lot of the time- but it is fairly safe to say that it took a year to make... Which also accounts for the style changes and quality progression evident throughout the four mins of play time ;)

Thanks for watching- and thanks again to Newgrounds for letting me upload such large movie files

Great movie (and cute characters!) but the 'Other' button doesnt work since it's WebM instead of flash.

Truly beautiful in function and form.



Great, Awesome. I loved it
It's just a piece of art, bad thing is there's almost no people making good animations like you. I hope the rest of the Newgrounders start making such dedicated and awesome work
10/10

pd.: i remembered when i watched it long ago there was sort of a Menu at the beggining why did you remove that and just left the video itself?
