Hej Sokoly

"The dispute between two kingdoms must be settled before it is too late. Follow the exploits of the Falcons as they make an urgent delivery. The end of one man's selfish tale brings a future to those who continue living in this strange world, but at what cost?"

This piece is a bit of a sci-fi take on the classic Polish/Ukrainian folksong "Hej Sokoly", what translates to "Hey Falcons". The song used in this is a remix by my good friend Initial P of DIsko Warp Music Be sure to check out the audio link for more music by him if you enjoy it!

**Some of the scenes in this get pretty intense with layers, so if your computer is chugging, I have a Youtube upload of this with you can find on my goshadole channel, or view it in Chrome**



great art and animation. not sure on how i feel about the music but it works. Keep up the awesome work. you earned these 5 stars, as i do not give them to just anyone!

Really like the unique art an music, but it's just too slow paced...

the visual production value of this is fantastic!!!!!! but the music really doesn't go with anything. The action in the animation is much slower paced than the track and overall the music was overwhelming and distracted me from enjoying the film. Props go for trying to do something a little bit outside the norm but didn't quite work how it should be.

Miss lirysc. I add English translation this song for all.
Enjoy singing.

Somewhere from beneath that black water
A young uhlan mounts his horse
He tenderly bids farewell to his girl
Even more tenderly to the Ukraine

Hey, hey, hey falcons
Pass the mountains, forests, pits
Ring, ring, ring my little bell
In the steppe
Ring, ring, ring

Sorry, sorry for the girl
For the green Ukraine
Sorry, sorry, one's heart is weeping
I'll never see you again


She, she remained there
My little swallow, my baby
In the green Ukraine
At my beloved girl's place


Wine, wine, wine, wine give it to me
And when I die bury me
In the green Ukraine
At my beloved girl's place
