@03:54For my first short film I wanted to convey simple tale of freedom. I came up with a story of a girl who literally becomes what she envies and dreams about. In the end, the girl trades up her humanity for a simple life flying infinitely as a crow in a painting. I wanted to convey more art forms in an already great art medium, video. I love animation, drawing, and painting, but don't see them together a lot. I hoped to achieve a good balance and mixture of these mediums in my short film, Crow Unbound.
I started making my film July 14, 2010. I finished the video on July 30, 2010. It was made on my personal iMac. I used Adobe After Effects to help start my rotoscope process. Afterwards, I used Adobe Photoshop CS4 to do all of the main animation with a Wacom pen and tablet. I pulled all of the clips together and did all of the major editing in Final Cut. For the music I turned to the royalty-free Apple Loops provided by Garage Band and did any mixing within Final Cut.

You can view the film at much better quality on my YouTube channel here:

Wow, I'm so amazed by this video, I bet it took a LOT of work, but you aced it! It's really stunning. I thought that it's already good at the beginning, but the end - speechless. And the transitions to other states like from human to crow and from not reality to that painting, which, btw, is really good, were mind blowing! Good work!!!!

=] Thanks so much! It did take a lot of work at the time. I hope to make more similar to it. I'm so used to trying to tell a story with just a painting or drawing that I found it to be hard to make a story with video. I'm happy that you enjoyed it so much.

The crow cried for the girl. I'm sure there's a lot of symbolism that can be found and noticed that even I didn't see before. =) It's fun looking for that kind of stuff I think.

"Is it a symbol?" "Sure it is." "What does it mean?" "What do you think?"

@05:39This reminded me of the scenes in Kiki's Delivery Service involving Ursula and the crows. The sketching of the bird and the eventual masterpiece painted from those sketches.

I loved the split seconds of animation when the water ran down the sketch, hinting that the crow had been given life through your imagination (the water almost looked like tears, too). For a silent film this held so much emotion and was very touching.

(Sorry, I very rarely watch this sort of thing so I'm not very good at giving feedback!)

Oh my gosh, I love that part in the movie! I'm a huge Miyazaki fan =)

I had the hardest time try to get water to pump through to make those 'tears' lol. I think that speaking what you feel absolute is the best kind of feedback. =) thank you
