@07:43Thoroughly brilliant use of metaphor. It actually took me a little while to figure out what "the Dark" was symbolizing, but you portrayed it with such graceful elegance... really pulls at the heartstrings and keeps you glued to your seat. This is a marvelous piece of animation and you should be really proud of yourself for pulling it together!

@06:26I think I get it. The creature is a personification of her illness and it's eating her meds so that she doesn't get better and so that it can spread

my thesis film.

the idea for this project grew from a single image in my head: a giant, brooding monster watching over a little girl outside her bedroom window. overall, i'm satisfied with it and glad i was able to finish such a large production, but i look back and i know i could've made it better. perhaps sometime in the future i'll remake it and do the story the justice it deserves. what i had planned is too heartfelt and epic for a short film.

still... my favorite aspect of the entire film is the music. once again it was composed by Derek Zhao, the man who did the score for "To The Sun". this time around we went for something more grand: a full orchestra (22 musicians i believe). the recording session was the most amazing part of the entire production and Derek did an excellent job interpreting the emotions i wanted into music.

animated in Toon Boom Digital Pro.
backgrounds done in Photoshop.
composited in After Effects.
edited in Premiere Pro.

I don't know why, but it really affects me. I can't explain why, but there is alot of feelings in that movie, even without words.
