Fox Fires - Animated Short Film

Graduation film from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Scotland.
Note from the director:
I pitched this idea in February 2018 and had the privilege of working with a number of my classmates and 3rd-year assistants. They each brought so much talent and enthusiasm to telling this story and I couldn't have been more fortunate to have them as my team. Please stay for the credits and look them up!
Fox Fires is inspired by the Finnish folk tale of the aurora borealis. The film blends 2D and 3D animation together.
Thank you so much to my composer, Denny Schneidemesser, for all of his help in bringing the film together and for scoring the work so beautifully. I've admired Denny's work since I first watched animated shorts on LTplayer and decided to pursue animation myself, having him on board was a dream come true.
More beautiful work on his LTplayer channel:

    Hey guys, thank you so much for watching the film and leaving your thoughts! I would usually try to reply to every comment, but there's too many for me to manage - I've read and appreciate every single one, though! I made a post on my patreon that goes into things in a bit more depth: I've responded to the confusion regarding the webtoon in this thread: For those interested in the upcoming art book, you can follow me on my art twitter to keep an eye on when preorders are available! The music is by Denny Schneidemesser, aka Danman87. It's available to listen to on here! Thank you so much for reading, and for watching, and if you have any other questions I'll do my best to answer them in this thread! In the meantime if you can share this video with people who might like it, I'd really appreciate it! (This comment has been edited to condense things a bit)

      This is so well animated even though this was created 6 months ago but if this were to be a movie! Like an hour or more type of movie, you can give yourself a pat on the back because in my opinion, this would be great for a movie! The one fox was in prison by hunters planning for an escape and when he or she gets free that's when the fox meets new friends in the wild following the little light in the dark! But idc how you do it, it's amazing either way! (Edit: like my comment if u approve to my comment! ^w^)
