@01:18Mostly mystic sci-fi fantasy, or seperated lol.

I am currently working on the first "project of life." A mystic sci-fi fantasy (kind of superhero, but not really - confusing? Yes, I know) titled The Saga of Thunderbrave. A trilogy about an alien guy which ends up on Earth. Too cliché? Perhaps, but my is taking on a kind of different style and such :)

This is the second animated short I made in my animation program.

I'm a big fan of all things elemental (specifically the wind) and natural (specifically the sky ^_^), and I really wanted to do something very this is what was born.

This project was a two semester assignment and actually wasn't my original idea for it, so I crammed my pre-production stage for this film within a week or two at the end of the first semester. I originally was going to do something about a baby Gryphon learning to fly from the reluctant help of a Wind Sprite...but I began to lose interest in it and this current project had been an ongoing idea of mine and I really wanted to do I went for it. Plus...I just really wanted to do pretty sky backgrounds with luminous clouds in them. ^.^

The student, Derek, who did the original music for this film is amazing. He was able to come up with this score within 3 days...granted, I would've liked for him to make some changes but I actually asked him to do it about a week and a half before the film was due...but that's only because my original composer backed out on me. The first composer I had wasn't really capturing the sound I wanted I'm glad I got Derek to do it. The temp track I used for the film is actually "Time's Scar", from Chrono Cross...and the film is actually heavily inspired by that song (I'd listen to the song on repeat while storyboarding and conceptualizing). So I guess it would've been ideal for me to actually get the rights and use the song...but I wanted something different from it, and I'm happy with the result.

Anyways...I've rambled on way to much about this...but I hope you guys enjoy it. You're welcome to critique it if you like...or whatever else you want, be it lambaste or praise.

So the monster kept growing after it kept eating her medicine...but the monster is meant to be her illness...does this mean she had a disease that couldn't be cured no matter what?

I really liked this little film though. it made me sad, but also a little like the feeling of happiness for someone but that is tinged by sadness....i'm not sure i explained that right. :/ it made me sad to see her die, but i was happy for her because she looked like she was finally at peace when she left.

you should definitely try to continue with this project (as you alluded to in your author comments) because i'm sure there are lingering questions like this one: how can someone's disease cause them to suffer as she did but also be her friend and comfort her?
