@02:55It's weird how this is horror, yet there are many humorous sound effects. It adds to the eeriness, though.

I hope you enjoy it. Feedback and constructive critisism is very much appreciated. If you have any other questions regarding the film, I´ll be happy to answer them. Thanks to everyone for all the feedback - especially on Novus VII

PS - its not the last movie in the series... Novus has much more to discover.....

@07:18The wolf had to die to the sake of drama... To many happy endings out there. But we will remember the wolf with fondness right ;)

Hi

I watched Novus XII on the ToonBoom showcase about a year ago and liked it very much, although I did have a reservation about the “gliding” walks of the main character. However, the artwork was fantastic and the storyline nicely twisted. I watched Novus IX this week and I have felt compelled to go back to it a number of times. I think Novus IX is an exceptional piece of work. The artwork is incredibly beautiful, the mood is expertly controlled, the sound and music perfect and the mix of camera/scenery moves fascinating. I usually, try to find something I think could be improved but I can’t really come up with anything. If I was really forced to say something of that nature, I would say it wasn’t clear to me at first that the protaganist was released from the bear’s stomach. Plus getting eaten by a bear is usually a one way process. However, I must acknowledge that some of the early versions of Red Riding Hood had her cut from the wolf’s belly. The other thing I watched a couple of times was the camera rotation from the full face wolf and protaginist to the profile shot when they are confronted by the killer bunnies. I wasn’t sure how this was being done without a 3d image and wondered why you didn’t use a jump cut.

In my view, this is work of the very highest standard.

Thank you very much for your detailed feedback - not many people bother to do so :)

I am really happy that you like the movies and are inclined to watch them again.

I agree to all the things you are saying, basically. About the first movie, well, I didnt know how to make walk-cycles. The first scene was the first one I ever made in Toon Boom, and the entire movie just expanded on that scene actually.

I thought about Novus IX the other day, and I thought exactly the same thing about the bear scene - I should have made it clearer that Novus actually climbs out of the bear... Well, I hope most people get it anyways.

The camera rotation you are referring to is actually just an experiment. This is one of the few areas where I use frame-by-frame animation - about 20 drawings in succession. This is extremely timeconsuming, so I kind of used it as an effect in the scene.... I wouldnt be able to do this on a grander scale (I would need to be a better animator also if I should make more like this.)

Thanks again for the feedback. I have started on a new movie, but my (daytime) work takes so much time nowadays, that Im having trouble sitting dow completing it. Its about Norwegian gnomes and waterspirits, and are in full color. Im also working on a new Novus, which will be the scariest yet.

Do you make movies yourself?

Yes, I do make movies myself. It’s quite a long story but I’ve been doing it as a way of appraising the skills and technology required in order to produce a product of a professional standard without the artistic constraints imposed by large scale commercial sponsorship. I had no desire to do the animation myself but I had to get involved in order to really understand the requirement. I started the process from scratch, about two years ago with stop motion, which I quickly ruled out after my house began to look like a scrap yard. I moved on to 2d animation with Toon Boom Studio and then Animate 2. You’ll find the Stop Motion Stuff through [link] Most of the 2D stuff is at [link]

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity about the rotation, I certainly tried that at least once myself.

I think most normal people will get the point about the bear. As I said , very trivial points.

I’m really looking forward to your next animations. I think your work is really exceptional.

Bob

Omg I'll be seeing those bunny shaped shadows with eyes in my nightmares.

That build up at the beginning is amazing, it was so scary! Yet there were these silly sound effects (bunny falling off cliff) that was funny xD.

I cried at the end ; (

Cool. Thank you very much.

I am glad that you felt scared, sad and a bit funny sometimes. That was my intention. Movies shouldnīt take itself too serious I think.

I am happy that you liked it :)
