@03:21I'm not a musician, so I have trouble getting music for my films. I really wish there could have been a soundtrack, but I tried to let the emotions make up for it.

I'm glad you liked it, even sans audio :)

My first short film and my first full animation. I made it for a contest that didn't work out, but the opportunity got me off my rear to just finally make something.

No voices, no music, no sounds. I wrote it to not need dialogue and I included no sound because I wanted the emotions and the expressions to carry the story. I didn't want to put sound in for the sake of sound and have it detract.

I support silent film. Har har.

production time: Took me about two weeks to animate by hand, scan it all in, line and color it in Toon Boom, and then edit it into one piece.

As for the film's subject matter: I don't know if anyone's been exactly here before-- whether you were the bully, the victim, the person who stood back and watched it happen, or all three. Honestly, I've been all three over various phases of my life. That's why I chose this subject. Bullying is an issue tied close to my heart. I hope one day people can stop victimizing each other, for whatever reason, and learn to love one another despite all differences.

Basic overview: A young girl's first day at a new school doesn't turn out as she hoped when, instead of making friends, she becomes bullied by her classmates. How she deals with this experience shapes who she becomes as a teenager, for better or worse, and an important decision will have to be made as the new girl in her highschool class looks to befriend her.

@03:21This was a little funny without any music at all, but when I just turned on some of my own in the background, it was just amazing. I think the emotional portrayal is done very well, and I enjoyed it a lot. :)

@03:21That was cute.

I think it would've been a bit better with some sounds. Girls falling on their butts, laughing, snickering, etc.

Otherwise great.
