Us - Chapter 1

Share Collapse

I finished just in time for pride month!

"Us" is planned as a four part coming of age story aimed to navigate the themes of gender, sexuality, and queer identity. 

Part 1 sees Poppy and Dahlia as they first meet in childhood, quickly becoming friends and growing up to realize there's something more to their relationship budding just beneath the surface.

Nice work! The art and movement is a bit limited for my taste, but stylistically its fitting for the story being told. The voice work, sound, and music is phenomenal, as well as the overall poetic presentation of the story.

Bleak-Creep responds:

Aw thank you! If I'm being honest, animation really isn't my strong suit, so I generally just try to frame my shots well and write stories that don't require too much action to make it easier on myself.

The voices have something hypnotizing... This is great content!

Bleak-Creep responds:

Thanks! Yeah, I’m really proud of both of my voice actors. :)

I feel very identified with this :)

Bleak-Creep responds:

Aw, I'm glad! I really wanted for these to feel as authentic as possible.


Bleak-Creep responds:

Thank you!

I hope they get married in part 2. I'd be ok with finding out they're polyamorous in part 4.

Bleak-Creep responds:

I've only planned a few elements of the fourth part yet so who can say!?
