Trailer for my new film!

Here's the trailer for my new film Flower Found! 

This film was my graduation project at HKU University of the Arts Utrecht. The film is almost 7 minutes long and it was animated in TVPaint over the course of about 3 and a half months. I sketched the background layouts digitally which my girlfriend Myra then traced onto paper from my Cintiq and coloured it with paint and crayons. 

The wonderful music for the film was composed by SleepFacingWest!

The film recently won Best Animated Student Short at the KLIK Amsterdam Animation Festival!

It'll take a while before I'll upload it to Newgrounds, but hopefully it's coming to a festival near you soon!

Here's a nice review someone wrote:
"This animation has an adorable, cartoonish aesthetic that initially made me expect a completely different kind of story. As it is, it managed to surprise me with its dark humour and biting satire of busybodies who take over a worthy cause and twist it into something unrecognisable and awful. A message for grown-ups slyly delivered with childlike drawings." source

Superb, congrats on the award!, Also, that review is making me even more curious!
(I'm also digging the OST)

aap responds:

Thank you! I was worried that the review spoils a bit too much, but perhaps the trailer spoils too little and people will think it's a film that's just for children.

That nice review sounds spot on! Looking forward to it, feels like refreshingly atypical NG material! Something for everyone.

aap responds:

Yes, it might not be your everyday NG material, so I'm also curious how it will be received here!

I'm a fan of your animations so I look forward to when we get to see it, also that review makes me know its gonna get surreal like your other works tend to do haha and I cant wait to see the darkness of it all! Congrats!
