Alright, it's time to show you guys my old short animated films. I know those who already watched my old animated film, "Pag-Alis" in my deviantART before. But I would like to share this with new online readers and others here, who hasn't watched this yet. I made it in 1999 for my animation project when I was an art student. My art professor Bob instructed me to choose one painting from any famous painter for adding my short film. I chose Van Gogh's famous dreamy painting, The Starry Night. It reminds me of my favorite director Akira Kurosawa's film, Dreams. I made 301 crappy drawings quickly. This song Pag-Alis is entitled by my favorite Filipino band, Barbie's Cradle. This film is about family problems.

About my short animated music film, "Babu's Dream", people were very eager to see it if it's done. Well sorry, it seems unfinished. I wanted to add more scenes but I can't... Well, I'm lazy, bwahahaha! Okay, I let you guys watch this now, it runs at one minute something (I know, it's too short). In 2006, I started to work on it because I really missed my old animation skill and my challenge was to make a film with my own style. It was so fun to experiment it. About the music, I asked my friend Blackmago to make a song for my film, he did it. After more months, I lost his music file because my brother formatted my CPU. (Sorry Blackmago, if I could ever make another film, you could make a song. *hugs*) I chose my favorite song, "Early Bird" by Yoko Kanno.

I seriously wished I could learn how to use Macromedia Flash or Adobe Premiere. I was strongly inspired by my favorite animator Hayao Miyazaki. For me personally, I'm not good in animating skills. But I enjoyed to create this experimental film. If I have an idea, I could make another short film again. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments about my films. Thanks, guys! See you next time.
