The trailer above is a preview of 8 minutes long story that was made as an animation storytelling challenge in the summer of 2011, thus animatic, script and storyboards for the long version existed. However, being a one-man-team, I decided that I will realize only a part of the story in form of a short trailer aiming for the highest quality of backgrounds and animation I could muster at that time. Learning a lot along the way I finished this 40 seconds short trailer in march 2012.
After good response from Japanese animation industry I began working on full lenght version which is planned to be finnished in the beginning of 2013.
I would also like to thank all people who helped me so far! Thanks!
At the animation's website you can see some excerpts from the mountain of sketches, character and setting designs, layouts, storyboards and backgrounds that where drawn for the above trailer and the original story. [link]
