Moon Diary

WARNING: This animation is 30 MINUTES LONG. Be prepared for this.

That said, it is my personal belief that it is worth it.

A lonely, childlike moon keeps a diary of his depression, boredom, and recurring nightmares. His daily realities seem to be based on dream logic: clouds with bovine personalities, teeth with eyes and mailmen who fly in balloons. He writes about his very few friends, an invisible person, a pack of wolves, and a boy who lives in space on a garbage pile, protecting the earth from debris. The moon mopes along his 'horrible as usual' orbit, as the invisible one suffers with his own surreal identity crisis while desperately trying to reach out to the moon. Moon Diary is 7 days through the eyes of this gentle sky rock.

Based on characters and comics by Erin Tanner with animation by Curtis Randolph and Charlie Daugherty; Moon Diary (2010) creates a world with a simple, bright surface on an enigmatic, dark and maze-like core.

If you want "pause" and "chapter select," this animation is also up on YouTube. Just search for "Moon Diary" and scroll past all the Sailor Moon garbage. :)

So that's...

...how the man in the moon came to be.

I see great potential in you, keep making these masterpieces, I have met so many individuals, who got crushed by the bigshots of Newgrounds, but you, you have a huge potential! Keep this up

Could you do the same thing, but on Saturn?

Please don't ever become a one-hit wonder. ;-)

This is probably my favorite flash animation to date. Very chock-full of symbolism and meaning. How very creative, the ghost & the shadow, the bird and the wolves - all of it. You've both got such talent, whether collaborating or solo I'm sure you'll go far. :-)
