Badge winner User Choice for The Film Skillet Winter 2012/2013 Animation Contest

A girl creates a world of that lights up the night sky, but something goes amiss and she must fix it.

This was done as my final year thesis film at Sheridan Animation. I guess my focus was more on colour scripting and layout, but a plot bunny birthed out of it somehow anyways :). We had to keep our films short or cut it to 1 minute for our Industry Day, but I figured I might as well try to squeeze a story into a minute. Thanks for watching it and I hope you liked it ^^

I went for a more of a soft-shaded look, which meant i had to do everything in photoshop with a soft-brush that took hours and hours, and days upon days, but i think the effect was what I wanted :). I think I spent around.....what's 5 months times 12 hours a day, 7 days a week? Yah, around that much time in total.

With just sixty seconds of animation, I feel like years of nostalgia have been pulled to the front of my mind. This film is gorgeous in, both, mental and physical aesthetics.

I think this film should win this contest--I have loved this since it was shown on deviantART's site, and think that putting this much feeling and love into one minute is remarkable and amazing!
