It's about time I uploaded this. This is my graduating piece from university that I completed in November 2010. It's a 2D animated short about the power of imagination. You can also check out a bigger version on the UNSW TV channel on youtube [here].

This is amazing. I mean, just... Wow. Beautiful. The only film that could tell a story like this with no sound would be interstella 5555 and it's no where near as good as this. This is breathtaking. This is going to be in my favorites list and that's hard to get to considering I only favorite things I'd want to see again a lot of times.
