An excessively emo music video made for the express purpose of celebrating the 5th birthday of my webcomic. ;)

Enjoy!

P.S., Forgive the fact that the loader bar doesn't work... I tried. :p

P.P.S., I didn't realise when I posted it that the name of the artist and song doesn't always show up at the end. The band is The Juliana Theory and the song is "The Closest Thing".

He's. . . an australian jumping mouse?

Anyways, I love this, a little bit jerky. The choreography is great (did I spell that right?)

However, you need to credit the artist in the SONG for the song you used. Plus I really want to know what it's called. ^_~

Other than that, I'll definetely check out your webcomic, and might even send you a link exchange request.

The song credit is at the end... though I think on some computers it gets cut off for some reason.
The song is called "The Closest Thing" by The Juliana Theory.

And he's a kangaroo rat, but yeah. ;)

Thanks!

Yay I guessed right! Ish.

Thanks. You might want to put mention of the song in the description, just so you don't get sued. That would be bad.

Poor, poor Keer :'<.........The animation is very well done, the character's movements are very nice and I like the atmosphere here.... I don't know why but that part where you can see Keer's shoes and his reflection in the puddle was the best in my opinion. I loved it :3

I commented on the forums too, but I couldn't resist commenting here as well.. I've watched this flash several times and I just can't get over how perfectly it captures the essence of Keer's longing. The whole situation really strikes a chord with me.. it's so like my life. That kind of feeling, that love you can't even understand yourself, it's damn near impossible to express to another person.. the paralysis that sets in and keeps you from even trying..

The artwork and animation are really well done, but it's the way they interact with the music (The Juliana Theory are fantastic!) to really crystalize what Keer feels that makes this little film so engaging. Thanks for five amazing years, Gloria. Keep up the incredible work.

PS. I had no idea just how much Keer thought of Twapa. This really put it all into perspective for those of us who just didn't get it.

:D Wow. You did an excellent job with this! I really like the scenes where the character in black is walking (especially the 3/4 one out of the room, where we can see the undersides of his shoes) and walking across the street and nearly getting hit by a car. Moments like that felt really sincere, and not, like...planned. :)

You sure like 3D turns a lot! I don't think I'd have the guts to try that in a (nearly) first-time animation.

:D This was wonderful, thanks for sharing!
