Hello everybody,

I'm a fanatic pianoplayer/music maker but also an animator. I made an animation about a boy who is drifting of in his imagination while practicing his piano lessons. I also composed the music.
I hope you'll take a look at it and tell me what you think of it!

thanks smile

HAHA! That was awesome! Do you have anymore animations up?

I really liked the space alien fight! How long have you played and done animation?

It's so cool... I'm gonna watch it again later after work smile

Very nice animation! A wonderful melding of the action and the music. Most of the time I feel just like the kid did just as he pounded the keys and caused the earthquake. I've never gotten to the space flight. I aspire to.
Nice job!

That was pretty cool! I really liked it. Reminds me of when I was starting piano at 5 and I was practicing my trills...man I still suck at them. But I've improved tremendously. laugh

Wow, thats a good animation. Your talented. Maybe you should try to make this professionally. There's an academy award category for animation shorts.

I agree with Piano Hero- it's very good. The piano is cute- gets bashed about a bit poor thing!
