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. :)

simply amazing... although I'll be the first to admit, I had no idea what was going on at the end (I'm assuming going through stages of the moon) but was still able to thoroughly enjoy it all the way


This is so epic im so glad i clicked on the link lol. i loved the part with the whale and the ship... so not expecting that! It was a bit of a cliche how he was just asleep or knocked out, but the randomness is quite weird until you get near the end and you finally get it. All in all its a awsome vid thanx for making!

havent logged in for 3 years.

But this was astounding. Pulled me in so I didn't want to let go.
