@02:33It's a fiction book about a "perfect" world where everyone is the same, is assigned jobs and lives, and there is no color. One person is designated to take all the memories because they can "see" things different from everyone else. It is pretty cool!
have a lazy Wikipedia link :P [link]

@00:12:) Close!! You got the role of the Nametaker right... he's based on the mythological figure of Azrael (who has the same job of those fates that you mentioned).
The people with wings are 'nothings' in a way. They have no body, no direct sensations, are formed of nothing but thought and never die. The kid is asking to be made real, to be given a body.... and the Nametaker is telling the Kid (later called Enda) that there are sensations that he won't find pleasant (and implying that if he gains a body, he'll end up dying). So the same sort of thing, with slightly different details.

Apologies for yet another upload of this to all who've seen it before... I'm taking advantage of the fact that I've just joined the Deviantart Film section to upload a higher quality version that you can watch from the deviantart page, and annotate and all that!

--------------VERSIONS-------------

DVD with full TV quality is available to buy here! :) The DVD also includes 3 extra short animations.

Watch it on youtube here!

-----------------INFO----------------

Creation: The animation was created by me over a 6 month period as my final project for an Animation course at Kingston Uni.

Story: The story and characters are based on a scene from a story by *kandinsky-prince This was originally meant to be a trailer of sorts for a full length manga that we were pitching to Tokyopop. Unfortunately it never went through, and development on the story is now on hold for the foreseeable future.

Language: Completely made up by me and *kandinsky-prince! Based loosely on Spanish with smatterings of other languages.

Music and Sound: Music composed, and sound provided by the audio-gifted ~moosebeast :D

Technical Info: About 80% of the animation is hand drawn in pencil, scanned and coloured in Photoshop, then composited in After Effects. 3D Backgrounds, and the 'hall of fingers' animation created in Maya, with toon shading for lines, and hand made textures.

--------------EDIT------------

Wow! a DD!! @@ Thanks to everyone who has commented and faved, and thanks especially to *pixieface for the suggestion and ^feawen for the feature!!

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-02-01
Rolighed Animated Short by *spoonbard It was completely hand-drawn by the artist who made it - all the cels were pencil drawn and then coloured and finished on computer. I just think it's a lovely and eeirie short film, and the amount of work it must have taken is astonishing. ( Suggested by pixieface and Featured by feawen )

Yes! It's awesome you picked up on that. The character at the end is based on ideas common to Samael/Azrael.

That's so cool. I'm writing about Death, and this seems to deal with a whole bunch of the same themes--loneliness, desire, a need for intimacy, separation... I mean, I guess that *is* death, but still. It's really, really neat how stuff happens that way.

Also, I was loopy from sleep deprivation the first time I commented on this, so I'll say it now--THIS IS AWESOME. I love it. I especially love the hand bridge/passageway. It's one of those things that sticks with you ^^
