The song by Hania Lee that plays through the menu is available for download here: [link]


An angel is banished to the cold plains of purgatory.

This film was completed before I started work on Tarboy, and I figured it was about time I packaged and released it. It was my third year animation project in college and the first larger scale short film I completed. It was also the first project completed that Hania and I collaborated on.

The production of this was an absolute nightmare to say the least. Working on this project was the reason I decided to do Tarboy completely in Flash.

My overall pipeline for animation looked something like this: 1.Draw images on paper. 2. Scan into Photoshop for digital paint. 3. Bring into morphing software for head turns 4. Export into Flash for character animation. 5. Export into After Effects for compositing. 6. Export into Premier for Editing.

Iím thinking this will receive a mixed response, but at this stage Iím glad itís finally out.

Hope you enjoy it, check out the bonus features if you want to learn more about my messy pre-production process. 

Purged by ~jameslee CATEGORY: Film and Flash An amazing film by an art student in the Queensland. There are options to click on that explain the making of the film. Wonderful music and animation caused me to be totally entranced into this little film. Sit back, relax and prepare to be impressed. ( Suggested by Hellobaby and Featured by WDWParksGal )

This film is really well done Clap , however, I really don't understand what the plot line is Sweating a little... ; I feel that I would appreciate this movie much more if there was an explanation, for example: what does this apple mean? It seems to be important...:( (Sad)  And the chains dragging her back up to heaven Innocent ; surely she would welcome this, unless Stare... 

They were they pulling her out of existance?  Nuu                                                                                                        Am I just thinking too hard?

I think the apple means that one he/she tried to feed her at the beginning.

:-( (Sad) I thought they were questioning her about it - like Eve who ate the forbidden fruit O_o ; "What do you think you did?" Oh Noes!

It was good but it confuse me a bit. I couldn't tell if it was his part of his memory when they were pulling him back or was it actually happening. But other wise I wanted to watch more.
