I worked on this on and off over the summer
Hope you guys like it

Hey! Before you read on, post in the comments what you think the story is!

Ginger boy (he doesn't have a name) is a soldier from somewhere around the 1700s and 1800s. His troop's been traveling through the mountains during a particularly bad winter, and Ginger boy gets separated from them. He freezes to death... and immediately after meets Death. Ginger boy isn't having it, so he and Death strike a deal. If Ginger boy can kill a nearby deer before Death can, Death will give Ginger boy a new life. Ginger boy is sure he will win, because bullets are faster than scythes, and he's right. He wins, and true to his word, Death gives Ginger boy another life. However, it's a trick. Death DOES give him another life, but it's the life of the deer. So basically Ginger boy reincarnates into a deer blah blah blah.

It is a little weird that he had to shoot the deer to get into its body I mean the deer should still be injured after the shot unless death healed the wound so that the guy would have a body to be in. It is an interesting concept but I wouldn't call it reincarnation because I would think that for that to happen he must be reincarnated within a newborn. Now that I think about it maybe it would have been an interesting idea if he had to kill a soon to be mother doe to speed up the birthing progress and he could reincarnate within the body of a new born deer facing the challenge of running from death still as he would have no protection from a mother.

But enough with my random thoughts. I do like the animation even though that it looks kinda minimal because it works with the concept of death. After all there is barely any energy left to keep on moving or getting usted to a new body. I have to say that you were able to capture the beauty of a deer really well!
