The movie maps the journey of a magical train through surreal landscapes as a metaphor for a poet's reveries. It captures the state of dreaming or imagination that has a constant sense of flow like travelling in a train or reclining beside the eternal rise and fall of the ocean. That space which is full of journeying and forgetfulness...


A production worth 5 Stars

This is the best animation I have ever seen on Newgrounds, and you actually mixed in the music quite well. I was ifffy on how the high amount of symbolism, but you mixed it well, the voice acting (If that was someone working for you) did his part very well and it all is just about one of the best things I've seen on this site.

CentreofGravityfilms responds:

Thank you very much....feels brilliant to know one's work brings joy to anyone out there!!

'River Flows In You' is one of my favorite pieces to listen to. Your animation, with the fantastic artwork and smoothness, does not disappoint this beautiful piece. Great job and thank you for making a video for this song. I hope to see more from you! I don't know if you had the intention, but I love the meaning of this artwork. If I had the chance, I would hug you.

CentreofGravityfilms responds:

Thank you very much!! i will certainly try to make more videos of this nature...just have to figure out some money and time...i'm completely overwhelmed with the comments here...this film is my hug to the world...to everyone who has ever felt far away with wonder, who has ever felt nostalagia for a pure space lost to time....i intended much from every scene both in terms of symbolism and beauty...at times the work takes a meaning of its own...thank you!

Reminds me of Fantasia, but there's a magic train in this version and that by itself makes this flash ten times better. The author has an imaginaion similar too my own, and you can bet I appreciate the imagery that comes along with the surreal music. Great work !

CentreofGravityfilms responds:

WOW to be compared with Fantasia is awesome!! thanks!
