New Animation Short Film: Mourning

mourning2

My goodness, has it really been 6 months since my last post?  Wow, time has gotten away from me and my schedule has been crazy.  But as they say, absence makes the heart grow founder, or some other manner of non-sense!  Well, I am finally back with an update.  (click “Read More”)

This time around, I have a new animation project for you guys.  The animation was done by a very talented animator named David Rodrigez who is a recent graduate from the animation power house, Animation Mentor.  He came to me with this chilling animation that, even to this day, still makes me shiver.  There aren’t a lot of people out there who strive to make a very serious animated short, and those who do usually fall flat.  However, David did it with flying colors.

The soundscape was simple in theory, but was difficult to find.  I wanted the audience to feel two waring emotions: sympathy and disgust.  I want the viewers to be absolutely appalled by the actions of the main character, but by the end, they feel a great sadness for him.  I can say with the utmost confidence that the music in this animated piece is the most gripping I’ve done and I am beyond pleased with how it turned out!  Don’t take my word for it, though:

As always, you can also see it over on the VIDEO page.  Be sure to check out David over at his website as he will be updating with new projects as he finishes them!
