Death finds a friend in one of his victims. Part 1 of a three-part series. Written and animated by Katy Towell. Narration by Tim Jones. See more stuff at!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

A very interesting story. The dearth of color really helps set the mood for the story, and the narration was spot on. Good work sir, I look forward to what you come up with next!

The first thing I would like to say is that the artwork is sooooooooooooooo stylish! Loved it!! It was a pretty good part 1 and I'm looking forward to the next segment. However, there are some things I'd like to ... "nitpick". Death's first attempt at killing the girl: while I liked the music and the imagery, I felt it ended up a little flat. The pacing is too quick I think, with the narration going from "He lifted his great scythe and thought... thought... he just couldn't do it". I think the tension could have been built up a little more. Next, the narration for Elsie's death: it's really the words used at this moment, I don't think it matches the mood of the scene. And finally, Death taking Elsie away: again it's the "dialogue" that bothers me, I know he's taking to a child but the way he forms his sentences... can't get behind it. But in any case, I thought Death looked great, Elsie looked adorable and I'm looking forward to the rest of the story ! Keep it up !

I've been watching your short films since I was a kid.What I've always enjoyed about them is that it's like a story book where you can just sit down and listen. That and well your always able to incorporate kindness in what seems the darkest things in life. Your stories make me happy and reminisce childhood stories.Thank you,your the best.
