What to say about this, what to say.
This is a story about Melody, and is a snapshot into her life.
This is my first film. 1 minute long, six weeks in the making, non-stop work on this. I can't put enough emphasis on six weeks. Wait...Six. Weeks.
Actually, more like four, since two of those weeks were devoted to concept.
In my body of work, this is the little toe. There is some terrible animation in here, and so many mistakes. The music was hastily done by me on my 10 year old midi keyboard with a broken pedal. It feels... humble. And I like it more than I probably should because of it.
It is a step into what I've found I'm most passionate about. And I loved every minute I was working on it.
I've learned so much more that I thought was possible about animation and how to put emotion in scenes, (not seen very clearly here), and I can't wait to use what I've learned for a serious animation next year. (FireTiger+AcidPanther).
Please no critique. Not even a little: 'Would have been better if you'd done this.' I know how many bad things there are in here, I just had no time to change them. And I don't wanna be all: 'Yeah, I know. Nothing I could do about it.' To every sincere, well-thought out comment. (As I do really appreciate crits on the whole, and the time it takes to write them.)
There is nothing too racy about, but it hints at adult content. I promise there's nothing too wrong with it, though. (If people think I'm being too cautious, I'll take the mature content warning off.)

So it turns out I had a lot to say.
