Try to view it as 720p? :D thanks guys~ For the biggest resolution, i could only upload it onto vimeo (dA had trouble converting my big resolutioned file)

~~~~~~~~

So here it is xD;; my final year thesis. I hope you guys will like it :).

Music composed by Paul Levasseur for this film.
You can find Paul's bio here: www.facebook.com/PaulEmilLevas…

i'm really nervous about uploading it here Dx don't judge me too harshly~~ Hope you guys like it >A<


ps.
If you want to download this, note me privately and i will send you a link to a private mediafire. I don't want this uploaded anywhere else by other people. Thanks :).

pps. The reason this was very short was because our school had a 1 minute cut-off limit this year for Industry Day, so we either had to cut our story into 1 minute anyways or we could just make a 1 minute film :3. That said, it still took me around 4-5 months of slaving away though "orz.

Night Light - short film by *Qinni is a beautifully animated piece of work that I found a while back. It flows beautifully and was an absolute delight to watch once again! ( Featured by kingmancheng )

A few years ago, I showed this video to my baby sister in an effort to get her to calm down, and it worked like a charm, she'd stop crying and focus all of her attention on the video. She's turning 3 this May, and she's just as captivated with this film as she was back then. The only difference is, she now knows enough words to ask me to play it to her. What you've created here truly is a thing of beauty, enjoyed by all ages! ;)

Qinni, I can totally appreciate the kind of skill, effort and time that it took you and your team to create Night Light. It truly is a beautiful, wonderful composition all around. I did a seven-and-half-minute animation for my final project. It took me an entire year to make it. Thank you also for your generosity in sharing techniques through clear and useful tutorials. Oh, and while I sing praises to your creative vision and style, I'm also giving you a happy birthday shout from California.
Cheers and best wishes,
Ed
