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 ds.com/

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.


Very interesting :)

Wonderful marriage of simple style good animation and symphonic music. Congrats!

nice :D

Though some of the pictures you use are questionable. Like the one with the graves. It was a nice animation and worked well with the music.


You timed it all so perfectly. I mean...going from sad to an hero was a bit disorienting, but it was a great balance of making me want to cry, but then like.. "Yay! Reunion!" Which was kinda cute but also like...meant he was dead?

People find this review helpful!
