This is a short film I made for my assignment at uni. The unit was called Lines In Time and was based around synchronising animation to music using predominantly lines, hence the lack of fill and shapes and such. The music I used is called Justice Day by Martin Werner.

Here's a link to his Newgrounds profile http://robomanus.newgroun

I went a little over the 30 second threshold :D The story is based around the world loneliest lightning bugg, a species concept I created for another animation, and follows his journey as he finds his place amoung the clouds. Theres a lot of love on here so I hope you enjoy XD

*Updated* This is a better quality version although flash still isnt working so I cant add a preloader. Sorry guys

**Just to clarify, he doesnt commit suicide. Without dying, he flies his way into heaven because the world he was living in was not a world he wanted to reside in. We went to live his days with his family among the clouds of the afterlife. No deaths except for his family of course.

I get it!

He flew up to a electric bug lamp, got shocked, died, and saw his family in heaven!

Ha ha. I never thought of it that way. My idea was that he just flew straight up to heaven but i guess it's up to interpretation XD

Kind of weird

It's really just some music and a bug flying around but it's still really good. I don't know how you did it but good job

Amazing :)

It's a great animation; it's a pity you had to reduce the image quality though.

Agreed. Hopefully my flash will start working again and I can put in a proper preloader and finishing point so that it doesn't just loop too.
