Play is an animated short about a Forest Dude and his buddy, who happens to be a bird. While having just the most joyous time for the both of them, the bird is dramatically hurt! For a term project in my DMT Course in college we had to basically make some type of "Media" project in any shape, like 3D animation, a website, graphic design, movie. I decided to mix After Effects with Photoshop and Flash and see what I could do. The project that I made is kind of a Bitey of Brackenwood remix, I was definitely influenced by that, and a desire to paint lots of green plant stuff.

I think I'm going to actually try to do some work in ToonBoom now too, it seems sweet.

Too short, and the bird never really expressed happiness in the beginning, great animation. Keep going

Very nice, I kinda thought, at the end they looked like they were about to have another dumb accident though! I'm probably just too much of an old cynic, Animation was amazing, as I say, though


Yeah...That was ADORABLE, and sad! The animations were WONDERFUL!
