@03:25I couldn't agree more! Every time I watch it, I'm overcome with the main emotion. It's so raw. It's so powerful...yet terrible and sad.

@02:22...he feels his rabbit lover, who he killed, with him when he willingly accepts his death sentence! This is... oh my God, where are my tissues!

And was he... was he sniffling earlier? Ah, I love this!

@02:58Such a sad story :( I replayed it several times so I could pause it right on the flash backs. Poor rabbit. Poor fox too.

@03:15If I watch the film with the sound off, I can feel the emotion more clearly and not have such a warping sense of fear. This part of the film is so tragic... I can only imagine what such sadness must feel like.

@00:16The music makes me feel afraid and uneasy. The imagery is dark, and somewhat beautiful. Overall, this video scared me but also made me think.

This reminds me of a twisted, more realistic version of "There She Is".

Great work.

"You can't change who or what you are... but sometimes it doesn't matter..."

Short story about a fox, sentenced to death for killing his rabbit lover and accepting his fate.

Finally it's done. This project took me 4 months and ripped the heart out of me as I was working on my own. It's a hand drawn animation, put together in Adobe After Effects CS5.5.

Special thank you to Her Name Is Calla, Family and Friends - you know who you are.

Any comments are welcome. Enjoy.

Before you ask, yes, it's much more personal than I hoped for.

Dreamlands by ~Distorted-Eye. The suggester says: "Powerful story, beautiful style" and I entirely agree. Very stunning imagery used! ( Suggested by Madelei and Featured by ditto9 )

I didn't know this received a Daily Deviation award. Hopefully this turned a lot of people on to the lovely music of the Calla crew.

Original music? I am always looking for new music from them so the thought of being able to hear something new would be excellent. I heard that they were going to be performing live tracks to a film some time soon... is this the same one?

Yup, it's going to be original soundtrack, but it's not the same as the playing live to the film. They are releasing an album very soon and it sounds amazing. It's really really good!

Yeah, I've been looking forward to this album for years now. And I've heard it as well. Really, really lovely. The title track is absolutely stunning. As is the rest of the record, haha. Well, I am very happy for you. They are wonderful folks to be collaborating with.

this was truly an amazing animation.

beautiful art, creepy yet well fitting music, a sad plot, and a beautiful concept!

cannot get enough of this film.
