Musical Video for brentalfloss.

Animated in 3Dmax, Compositing in After Effects
This project took almost two years to complete

Always loved Brent´s music and working with him was an amazing experience for me, and learned a few more tricks of modeling, rendering and animation.

Now the light of day is breaking
do they know my heart is aching?
eyes are cold, face is stern to
mask the fears that I may not return
don't you know you will be on my mind
as I leave my home, leaving love behind
and now it's time to go
now it's time to fly away
in the suit and on the ship
another death-defying trip
I'm gone but still my heart is there with you...

Down, down, into the cave, time to be brave, time to be strong,
can't stop moving, changing, improving, as I go along
fight not for the bounty, fight not for the glory,
I fight for love!
I won't stop till I have slain the mother brain!

If it takes my whole life, I'll make it home, and
I will see you again... you are my home, so
here I go do or die time to run, time to fly
with death below, and hope above
I don't fight for glory, but for love!
no, I don't fight for glory...
but I fight!


Im gonna go with everyone else on this... the animation is REALLY nice but seriously.... since other M every one seems to be making samus this weak ass cliche bad ass woman who is really just like every other woman... fuck that she is SAMUS ARAN... this song should be about kicking ass getting revenge for reclaiming a lost planet... fuck all this love shit...

Great animation, very impressive stuff. But that song, I mean seriously it is so bad that I had to re-watch it on mute just so I could focus. It was like a bad Disney track or something.

Amazing animation, but the story (aka music) is a little meh...
I really love Samus and the atmosphere that she is in, but then you make an amazing 3D animation and put a really cliché stereotype and the "fight for love" thing? Metroid has some of the best dark scenario, while stills manage to create something unique, not only because the protagonist is female, but the whole concept. Just don't throw "flowers and cuteness" over a really deep character. Please.

Wow - that was quite amazing. From my experience, two years actually seems actually seems fast for this amount of polished work. There were some really nice visuals in there. The lyrics were, of course, great and were wonderfully performed. Overall, and excellent production.

Thanks :) 2 years were spend in modeling characters during my free time, the animation was done in 2 months working 24/7. I was lucky that I had the 7Pcs of the office avaible for rendering. Some scenes tooks 10 minutes to render a single frame

The animation was very good. I wasn't very fond of the rest though. The classic dark Metroid-atmosphere was replaced by something very different that just didn't feel very suitable for the series (or Samus) at all.
