Stars Fell in Illinois

This is a piece I did in school. The song is Stars Fell in Alabama by Stan Getz. The street corner I created in my animation is from a street in Chicago, so that is how I got the title.

I recommend not expanding it because the quality will be bad. I made it over 3 years ago.


Edit 9/5/11 : High quality version can be found here.

That was great but,
just one thing:
explain to me how you went about making this on flash.


I feel this short is interesting in it's perspective to personification and it's very cute. I liked it

superb peice of art.

this to me says more than a lamp and a mailbox. see, the lamp is sad and lonely,looking around for a friend but no one can be found then a mailbox who is kind to the lamp and acompanys him and cures his lonely slump when no one else would.


it was nicely done, however; i became bored quickly. sorry :[ i rate it a 5

Simple is Beautiful

Reminds me of the Pixar Short with the two lamps
