This is the most epic animation I've ever made I reckon!

Through the Fields is a song by The Little Unsaid.

I animated this in Photoshop so you can imagine how long I've spent on this, it's certainly been a journey and a half!

Special thanks to John Elliot and Alex Horsfall for giving me this opportunity. I hope we can work together again sometime in the future!

Please check out their homepage for more amazing music!

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-05-28
Suggester says: "A beautifully animated film made by Kingman Cheng. With very unique seemingly hand-painted animations, visually impressive backgrounds, and incredible music by The Little Unsaid, makes this all come together wonderfully. The hard work put into this film pays off, as the emotional and touching story is well worth the four minute running time it takes to watch."

This was the most beautiful thing I have sever seen, it touched me through the animation and the music. Is the music yours because I was wondering if it's on iTunes as it is an amazing song and I would love to buy it. :)

Hello there! The music isn't mine, it's by The Little Unsaid who asked me to make an animated music video. The artwork and animation is my work. :)

You can buy his work, and I would highly recommend his songs!

Check out his homepage here for more info! www.thelittleunsaid.com/

Woah. Everything was really well done and fascinating! The music and animation are perfect together :la:
I love it X3
Though that thing is heartbreaking :saddummy:

For me the guy is painting the life he'd love to have; with that woman next to him; and the dog/wolf is his hope.
So he tries to hold onto his dream and hope (following the canine without even knowing where he'll end up) and in the end he gives up because he realises that he can't keep on going and he can't reach his dream (canine is out of reach). That's probably not the meaning of that thing at all, but eh. I have a really weird way to understand things anyways XD

I'm glad you love both the music and animation! Yeah it was a bit sad towards the end! :(

That's a really deep analysis, I love that! We left the meanings of the animation a little bit open because we felt like people would enjoy interpreting it in their own way. So it was really great reading what you made of the narrative! :love:

Oh right in the end you assume he's just sorta stopped because he can't reach the wolf because he somehow managed to get down there! :O

Whether or not he's actually given up or not is not clarified, maybe one for a sequel to explain? ;)

And that'd be such a tease if the wolf was all "Hey, hey come on. Coooommme on. Alllmoooossstt.... JK peace out."

Wow! That's incredible! Beautiful animation and really well-executed, touching story! You really took full advantage of the abstraction/surrealism that animation could offer in helping to convey the emotions and events of your story! My favourite detail was the scurrying white lizard. :)

I was wondering if the wife turned into a wolf. Like maybe a werewolf supposedly killed her, but she actually turned into a wolf instead.  Not sure. XD I enjoyed this, great work.
