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. :)

"...both sides..."

That was just plain awesome.

You sir have awed me. That had to have taken a long time to make, and every part was perfect and meaningful. A perfect depiction of a dream-scape, filled with meaning and emotion.

Well done.

The story was simply brilliant and the animation was really well done.


This. THIS is the qualtity of a movie that i come here for, a verry nice story with really good animation and drawings. Not to mention that it kinda makes one think. The sheer length of it alone is impressive, AND you managed to make it into somehting enjoyable. Kudos to you.
