Come watch, come vote!


I can now announce my animation officially! My newest animation, The Mark is now a contender in the "Drama" category at the 25 thousand dollar Aniboom competition. My original footage is in hi definition, this means it has a wide screen, and since the Aniboom site has square windows for animation viewing, my footage has been squished together to fit, making things appear sort of skinny and tall. Here's what I recommend, watch the video (the large sized one) at my webpage here (where you can also read a whole lot about this animation), after you watch it then go to the Aniboom site and rate it. Do this by going here and clicking the farthest right boom ball (by the "your vote"), they will ask you to register, but it's super easy to do! After that you can now rate it (go back and click the ball again) and it will work, you will see a thank you window as proof!
Or you can do this in reverse by just going to the Aniboom.com front page and clicking the blue login button up in the top right corner, here you will be able to register, you can then go to my "The Mark" page and vote right away the first time.
I hope you enjoy the animation and that it gives you meaning, it was very cathartic to make. And I thank you my dear friends and family for your votes and your support! Turn up your volume!

That's okay weirdbunny. Although this story is representative of something from my youth, I left it vague enough that it could be relatable to the viewer.
The main character is by himself and reaches out, but he is told something is wrong with him and that he can not stay in the place he is in, that he has to go away. As time goes by he begins to take on the traits of those he is now around, by digging the holes. Digging holes and filling them up demonstrates time not being utilized, he and the others are not productive here. While he is in the thick of it, as he begins to tire and he realizes that the mark is not really there, and never really was all along, he can remove it, he is in charge, he is free from this label placed upon him by someone else. With this he realizes that he can return to the world, but even better! Hence the 3d, it is now that he lives his own worth through his own judgment and here, where he can find his own potential and as he does so, he can find love, these things are what he was seeking after all.

Let me make up a simple example for you, although there are so many that are more complex, say a boy was told he could not throw a baseball, he begins to believe it and lets the external viewpoint actually influence how he throws a ball, so he leaves baseball behind and spends his time doing other things. Then one day when he is very tired of living this way, he realizes that his self value was placed by an external source when it really comes from with in (usually comes with age). Then goes back to throwing ball, perfects his craft and becomes a famous baseball player, this is his passion, he is happy here, he is free.
