The story revolves around the young friendship of
a boy and girl. One day they plant a seed in a field,
soon after the boy's father shows p and takes him
away. Many years pass and the seedhas now grown into
a beautiful sakura tree.But the two friends are
no-longer in contact and are in very different
circumstances due to their distanced friendship...

My initial idea was to have a story driven short-film
that would not rely heavily on visual aspects. Hence I
used colours and simplistic shapes to give objects more
significance according to their place in the story.
The reason I decided to use children in the beginning
was to portray a sense of innocence that would expose
viewers vulnerability. The story takes a twist at some
point to drive in a lasting message that
"Time Waits for No Man"

Briliant story but the animation and drawing needs some work. Well done!

Not a bad job for your first flash. I gave it a three for a nice effort, with room for improvement of course. I look forward to seeing things from you in the future as your skills advance and you become a true artist.

Beautiful... really from all the new submissions this one really stood out. I was able to tell what the story was about without even reading your synopsis. Nice soundtrack, animation style was also excellent. Hope to see more submissions like these in the future.
