This film was completed before I started work on Tarboy, and I figured it was about time I packaged and released it. It was my third year animation project in college and the first larger scale short film I completed. It was also the first project completed that Hania and I collaborated on.

The production of this was an absolute nightmare to say the least. Working on this project was the reason I decided to do Tarboy completely in Flash.

My overall pipeline for animation looked something like this: 1.Draw images on paper. 2. Scan into Photoshop for digital paint. 3. Bring into morphing software for head turns 4. Export into Flash for character animation. 5. Export into After Effects for compositing. 6. Export into Premier for Editing.
I'm thinking this will receive a mixed response, but at this stage I'm glad it's finally out.

Hope you enjoy it, check out the bonus features if you want to learn more about my messy pre-production process.

Great visualy, but...

You really got some great visuals there. But below the art and all the effects, the actual content seems very thin and it appears that there isn't much there at all. Also the film ended very anticlimatic and thus pretty unsatisfying, sadly.

The art style looks quite different than what I see every day on this website, but I have to give you credits for your efforts since you began with drawing the images on paper. The movie is very sophisticated --- I still have not fully understood the movie after watching it twice. Nonetheless, credits must be given to you for all your hard work and it is easy to tell that the movie is excellent, 9/10.

very interesting stuff

you definitely have a flair for the cinematic.

While Im not going to be as harsh as sherbelax, I will agree that I found the stick figure characters more ugly than abstract. Its fine to have highly stylized characters, but even they need to follow the rules of anatomy.

aside from that, the skies and colors and mood were all incredible and pulled you right in, Definitely the talents of a director. The music was spot on as well.
Storywise, it was ended to abruptly to give the viewer that well deserved payoff.

all in all great work.
