@02:21It's cruel... to think this is the way that humans would treat any animal.
The truthfulness in this film demonstrates that there are those very few with a good heart, and that they are willing to see the beauty in even the most viscious creatures. Very nice work.

heeerre's my third year film! @_@ 

I worked on storyboards first semester, then animated, painted, post-production stuff, etc. all second semester... 

The boy isn't fully animated, but... as long as the story gets across right? :P I'm really not going to go back and draw more frames for him. Even though I learned a lot making this, I'm so over this thing... LOL... *starts on my 4th year film*

The only character I really loved animating is the beast character 8__8 

There's also this lame 4 minute time limit at my school for my year... so I can't extend some parts and add more that I wanted D: but... what can I do. 

SCREW ANIMATING HUMANS. 

hope you guys like this short though! 

View the extended credits (and a couple sound edits) on vimeo~! vimeo.com/92798581

edit: ALSO COOL NEWS, I GOT THE CONCEPT ARTIST INTERNSHIP AT LAIKA THIS SUMMER!! The studio that made Coraline, Paranorman, and The Boxtrolls! I'm so excited and relieved ;___; I cant wait to see what Ill learn there!

This was beautifully depicted. While the animation wasn't stellar at places, due to your time limit I'm sure, the backgrounds and feeling through the visual storytelling made up for that.
I loved it. Great animation and great story. :D

TVP is all the animation and flat coloring for the characters. Photoshop for the backgrounds and special effect layers, and AE for moving things around/adding any special effects/extra lighting pretty much. ^^

Glad you had fun bud.  Definitely made me grin but you could tell it was g/pg.  Lol, otherwise the cardinal would have been lunch and that heart warming feel to the end would have been much less fuzzy.  :)

Much like most of your artwork the possibly horrifying allievated by a grin and a smile.  The little details like how the beast cocked its head to let the boy in close and such was freaking awesome.

Thanks as always.  I honestly thought for sure you'd be running straight for disney.  All those animated films with animals as stars rather than humans.  Good luck with your internship.

I loved this I'm not going to lie dem human frames - if it was smooth omfg it would be so nice.  It's good they limit you to 4 minutes it teaches you how to condense something into the essentials. Nice work as always Fiona hope to see more of this!
