@00:42This here. This is horrible and wrong. Kids who do this to their friends were raised with closed minds and no imaginations and they're going to grow up to have completely unfulfilling lives.

@00:01this was so sad ; - ; I actually cried while watching this :'( people shouldn't have to change for their friends like that, but that's just the way life is. Its so sad tho and reminds me of my stuffed animals. This was an AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL animation and it definitely plays with people's emotions, which makes it a truly amazing video. I LOVE this so much

@01:39DO IT!!!!!GIVE HER WHAT'S BEST FOR HER!!!!!!!!!!
And maybe,for good measure,a table tennis paddle;since a chair would be a bit far.
the way she laughed at her real friend.and siding with a kid that's probably 5 years older than her and up to his head in sports and what not and whatever..

she deserves it,man..
and maybe you should do it more than once,just make her normal again,please... )':

Well... I haven't had much luck with submitting this to festivals, and I finished this back in March, so I figured it's about time I caved and shared it with you all. I'd still like to try submitting it to some festivals next year if I could, but.

Anyway, this is my film from senior year of college. I started working on the story in my second semester of Junior year, did most of the animation in the first semester of Senior year, and got about half of the clean-up done by the end of Senior year. After I graduated I spent the summer finishing the clean-up and the layouts, and I finished most of the color in a couple weeks earlier this spring. Almost all the work on this film was done by myself. It was no small task to be sure! A lot of people are surprised at the amount of work that goes into animation. The fastest I was able to work on this project as about a second of rough animation an hour. This is for only one character in the scene. Many of the scenes had 2-5 characters in them! Clean-up took twice as long as rough animation, then color, etc.

The story is actually inspired by an event in my own life, and represents a lot of my own feelings about being an artist and being in-between childhood and adulthood.

Anyway, enjoy! My goal for the film was to create something that anyone could understand or relate to in some way, and I hope I have accomplished that if nothing else.

EDIT: Wow that was fast, thanks for the Daily Deviation!! I am serious, nothing means more to me than that people are seeing and enjoying the film. Thank you very much for all your kind words and sharing your thoughts with me. :) I'm really glad you guys like the film.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-11-19
Free to Fly by ~tigrin is one of those things that simply hits you. It touches the heart in many deep and profound ways. I'm sure we all remember how it was to play with toys as a child, (heck, some of us still do!) And I know many here, being artists as adults, have kept the spirits of our imaginations alive, be it in a story, a character, or simply our own little muses. This animated film brings all that to the surface in a powerful way. Written by Suggester ( Suggested by Senaru and Featured by ArtisnotanAccident )
