Animated fantasy "A Star's Wish"

Starlight is the slowest shooting star of all but for his childhood wish to come true, he needs to beat the fastest light. The fate of this young star with a dream will shape the fate of man and Earth as a whole.

[Production Note: Experimented with 3D software for the first time (Anim8or) and using the first designs I could come up with, I put this story together and voila! I learn by doing, so... Not at all impressed with the character designs, but I loved the ease of animation as
opposed to 2D IMO. Hope you all like the storytelling format ^_^] ...Don't see myself jumping ship to 3d anytime soon though, hahaha!

Thank you SO very much. Stopped trying after I started clogging the thread with replies to myself. Lesson learned.

This is very contemplative and beautiful. The words are a little hard to read as the text is small, but I was able to follow the story. Very nice, impressive film. Enjoyed watching the video. Thank you for posting it here.

Thanks for the compliment. I'll make it a point to have larger words if ever I do anything subtitle-based in the future. Guess I forgot to factor in the quality loss in the uploading/compression process. Point taken ^_^ Thanks again.
