@01:17Thank-you :) I can't say I've heard that, the music I chose was Hungarian Dance Number 5 by Brahms. The piece is originaly intended to be played at a faster tempo, but in the audition stage it occurred to me that this would be perfectly emotive for the film. I was also fortunate enough to meet a violinist who was full of information on the history of this music and told me that this is among many pieces of music that European immagrants to America would have brought with them and played frequently in this era.

On a side note, it reminds me of one night I had spent all day turning out drawings for the film, I was finally taking a break to eat and I switched on the radio. I kid you not, they were playing "The Devil went down to Georgia", by this time I had violin music on the brain and the violinist burned into the back of my eyelids, lol.

@00:29Thanks! It's funny really, the backgrounds ended up being my way of winding down at 2am in the morning after animating all day. Eisner's (and Crumb's) inking style is really nice and relaxing work on and it creates some really nice looking backgrounds.

I'm glad you like them :D

@01:02Yes, but i think this mostly has to do with working off of a set framereat, taking a few frames out in some places, and putting a few in in other places would really make this smoother. depending on the animation program, this could be a snap or incredibly tedious...

Yeah, this is one of my favourite scenes. When I was working on it I was working some long hours and my own fatigue really enabled me to translate that depressed feeling in this part of the film.

It took me alot of time to perfect, but I also had to argue the fact that I thought I could do it at the time. I'm glad I stuck to my guns so to speak :)

Thanks, the rotation took alot of tests and planning before I started producing the final version of the shot, I think that took almost two weeks alone.

A Piece Of The Action is my final film degree project and took 8 months to produce.

It premiered in a local cinema and film festival on the 21st May 2008, winning the Innovation Award and some column inches in the local newsapaper to my surprise.

I'll be post a journal on the subject, where I'll go into more details, acompanied by some layout and background work shortly.

This film is dedicated to anyone brave enough to have the courage of thier convictions to pursue of thier dreams.

A Piece Of The Action by *Project-Aquarius tackles some very difficult animation with grace and skill. A wonderful film. ( Suggested by feawen and Featured by Marker-Guru )

@01:17The violin song sounds like it is from "Mystere" (Cirque Du Soleil), but wonderful animation style.
