Escaping Emily

Author Comments

This is my final film project for university, I loved working on this project so its real satisfying to see it finished up now.
It was originally based on a comic I wrote a while ago but the project kind of gained a life of its own as I worked on it so it turned out pretty different.

Thanks to my music guy Paul, who was awesome and super reliable.

I hope you enjoy :)

Thanks for watching!


The fact that this is so simple, yet so effective shows a great deal of natural talent. Excellent work.

Bruh, I'm blushing, thanks.


When it goes sad it really goes sad! Wasn't expecting that. Interesting how easily it builds up, and how brutal it all tears down with such a simple disappearance. Those feels! Stylish work, and impressive use of atmosphere. The style reminds me a little of Emily The Strange btw - I thought it might have a relation, but this blew those expectations way!

Thanks for the kind words dude, I see your reviews around a lot so its good to hear from you on my project. I haven't read Emily the Strange but maybe I should, if its similar to my style I might enjoy it.


That twist at the end hit me like a surprise punch to the chest.

Excellent. B)


Really nice.

[SPOILERS]

However, I believe that when Emily dissapeared, it could've been slower in the turning of the camera, or perhaps she could've dissapeared behind a tree. It kind of felt awkward to me. Probably, with a slower camera movement could've worked. It's just an opinion, anyways.

[End of SPOILERS]

Anyways, as regards the animation, the style, the voice acting (great choices there, their soft voices totally nailed it), and the superb music, altogether made up a great piece. As someone said before, it kind of feels like the ending of a story, but it can stand on its own perfectly fine.

I actually did that shot by rotoscoping a basic model of the environment animated in maya, then adding details and the characters afterwards. So by the time I realised timing might be an issue it was too late and project deadline was coming up. Oh well, its a lesson learnt for next time I guess.
