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 nice.

This is a simple concept art that many directors begin real movies with. I think you got high potentional for making things like this ^^ Really great


I loved it, music animation it's all gravy baby, but I got one problem with it. If the little bug is all alone, who took those pictures of him during those sad moments in his life? And why did he bother framing them? I'm just saying...

Yeah...I'm putting it down as creative licencing

This Is What A 5 Means

Great dynamics, true artistry, great composition; the drawing bit of the animation sure wasn't the best, but in a nicely wrapped package, this isn't outstandingly phenomenal, but it's what more artists should be shooting for.

I hope your work progresses.

This is stunning.

The is the best thing I've seen since Bitey and the rest of the Brackenwood folk
