Winner of Best Animation and Best Introductory-Level Film at the Grand Valley Winter 2013 Film Showcase.

Last video for the semester; hope you guys like it. :)

The assignment was to make a short film using the theme of a transition from utopia to dystopia (or the reverse), to use as many "visual elements" as possible, and to incorporate one of two possible quotes. I chose George Orwell's "In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act."


PS: I don't know why some of the animation is lagging. You'll just have to ignore it. Sorry. :/

Because she's a lesbian in a conservative theocracy.

All of your Videos are both simple and moving, and I love them all. This one rings truer to me for I am Lesbian and come from a christian family and had to deal with some of the same things. I'm happy to say that my family is with me 100% now and I'm lucky for that. I truly do love all your shorts and hope to see others.

I'm really glad that you have a support network - that's great to hear. :)

I'm also really glad that you've enjoyed my work thus far. :D
If you'd like to see more of it, you can always subscribe to my youtube channel: [link] I only post about half of my stuff on dA, and everything shows up on youtube first.

I don't have anything coming up right away, since I'm busy getting what I already have into festivals (this one actually won 2 awards this weekend, and has a promising future), but I hope to have some new shorts in a few months time.
Thanks again for your support. :)

Honestly beautiful. I got the feeling of desperation almost instantly. I love how you made it more about the two's relationship, but the dystopian world came through obviously.

This is very moving. If this is an autobiographical work, I'm very sorry that you had to go through it. I hope you'll continue to live your life. Don't stay locked in the prison of sadness forever.

Happy holidays.
