@01:03It does, doesn't it? I think that's part of the reason I like it so much. I also like how value shapes are used rather than traditional line art. Awesome job!

this is beautifully done, however i had to watch it sans sound seeing as i had talking ads.  I don't think you can control this, but it would be great if a download were available.

=mimetalk taught me how to do the fog and water effects. Super awesome artist, you should check her art out.

But yes, it was a solo project! First year film assignment/final. I had a composer, but he flaked last minute so I put together my own music

Awesome, I love your character designs and everything, such a cool concept. me and my animator/musician friends are thinking of starting something where we make creepy cool audio visual stuff. this is the kind of direction I see it going.
Anyway you did an awesome job all on your own. I know how long this shit can take.

Wow. On the one hand it's downright simply beautiful and is awesomely animated. On the other hand, I feel like he's a collector of souls. The reason for this is unknown to me since I'm unfamiliar with the mythology of the world. He seems rather sad about even though it benefits the group he lives with. Does he perform his duty or does he let the soul go to its final destination? Or is this an act of mercy since souls will wander aimlessly even though they bring forth light...?

It's a fair amount to digest.
