I've been working eight months on this one. The complete animation is thirteen minutes in length. I'm still trying to get it through post production... voice actors and music.

Script was written by Alain Williams and the music is being composed by Marc Junker. Both extremely good friends who've supported me through this.

I'm certainly not an animation expert, but I would say this is very well done for one person. I hate that 3D animation has killed 2D in North America.

I strongly agree! It's really sad. However, I still have hope. I don't think 2d is dead just yet... I'm for some reason believing that they will bring 2d back and start making traditional animated movies again!

I think the fact that Disney reopened their 2D studio is a telling sign. And 2D is still strong in other markets, like France and Japan. It's probably North America just having a stick up its ass that's causing this rut right now.

Anyway, the trailer looks good. Were the 2D parts done in flash? I loved the music too, my complements to the composer.

I missed it at the convention, but this is pretty good. It could use some work in the anatomy department, but the cinematography (I think that's the right word?) is very good. Hope it leads to big things.

I don't know... I'm still trying to figure out my drawing style. I'm only 21 so I think I have some time to actually work it out. I'm heading into visual arts next month so hopefully that will help!

Thanks Jonathon! Yea, I do need to figure out my anatomy. Someone on this forum recommended I should keep it the way it is but exaggerate it a lot more. I think that could work as a style as well but I should learn to do it right before playing around with warped limbs and such. Anyways, It was good seeing you again at the con! Thanks for the comment.
