Had to re-upload because the other file was stuck in "preparing film"
:(

Should this go into the 'fantasy' or "horror/suspense" genre?

So this is my second year film from my Animation course in IADT (Dun Laoghaire).

:bulletred: The characters were animated in Flash
:bulletred: The backgrounds were hand-drawn and inked, with the broad brushes being added in Photoshop
:bulletred: The still frames were all hand-drawn, with most of the colouring done on Photoshop with brushes
:bulletred: Everything was composited on After-Effects, with some of the more flashy effects added through this programme too.

....:::::bulletyellow::bulletorange::bulletred: The theme of "time" was given to us, and I pitched four very different ideas (one had dancing Morlocks, one had Jazz-loving robots, one had watchmaking blue lemurs) and by popular vote, this one was chosen. :bulletred::bulletorange::bulletyellow:::::....

It is loosely based on the story of Snow White.
It has some sort of deep meaning that I'm now a bit hazy on after working very long, tightly-packed hours on it for the past few months.

Yeah, it's kinda like 'the Ring' - I only fully realised that mid-way through production... that film seems to have permeated into my subconscious....
I was consciously inspired by:
~ Harry Clarke
~ FSc
~ Gustav Klimt
An' all that good stuff...

Music by the awesome Kevin MacLeod
Many, many amazing tracks available ROYALTY-FREE here [link]
Seriously, this guy's music is in about half our films, if not more!


Font is "Bleeding Cowboys"
But I will always know it as "So long Mr. Despair"...

:iconcreepyplz:Enjoy...

definitely!

also I just realised something
the Queen was actually still beautiful, it's a bit sad seeing her throwing everything away because of some nonexistant rivalry that won't really change anuthing rather than just enjoying the time she had left

:nod: That's one of the points I was trying to make - I feel that it's something that happens in real life, and people often see someone who doesn't even know them as an enemy (eg: when "young people" are resented because they are young)
I wanted to make the point that we're all going through the same inevitable process (life), just at different stages. Everyone was once young, and spends their life getting older.

The only way to break the vicious cycle as presented in this film is to stop putting faith in the distorted images we are presented with by outside sources (who, more often than not, do not have our best interests at heart)

yes, the eternal generation conflict
people tend to forget about the past

earn from the history or it will repeat itself!
great example right here

alto I wonder what had the mirror to gain from all this
