Hurray, my first animation!
(I hope there aren't any grammar mistakes or typos in there, if you find anything, do tell me. Basically, I took the original Poe-Text, but I translated it into "Easy-English")






all these things belong to somebody else:

story is "The Masque of the Red Death" by Edgar Alan Poe
sound is from [link]
music is "Kreisler Chines Tambourine" by Xenia Akeynikova
Font is Baskerville italic

Amazing!!! I'm not one to be scared easily, but this? This terrified me, even though I've reread the story countless times!!! The art style is very unique and abstract, and fits the story very well. It [obviously] has a very appropriate mood for the original prose, and it's overall easier to understand than the original text. I'm not sure if anyone's pointed this out yet, but you did have a typo somewhere in the beginning when mentioning Prospero and his courtiers were safe within the confines of the castle. You put "save" instead of "safe." Other than that, it's a striking masterpiece!!

Echt toll! Ich habe das gern gesehen!


But, you kinda missed a big point of the story, by removing the idea of the seven rooms, the idea of the seven stages of life.
Not to say that this wasn't great, because it was.

Interesting. The screams are a little much, but the stylized characters and use of color are interesting. Perhaps the pacing could also be varied, slightly, specifically using faster pacing to develop the plot, and slower pacing to build the tension (in this version it all seems uniformly slow).

Anyhow, a good example of how powerful good literature can be (and how simple it is to adapt short stories to new mediums).

Cool.

Thanks a lot for your review!

I see your points and agree. I was already trying to have screams that are less comically, as the mood of the original is very grave but they are indeed still too much. Also thanks for your opinion about the pacing. I will try to give more attention to that in later projects :)

oh gott, das ist so gut!
die maske des roten todes war immer die poe-geschichte, vor der ich mich am meisten gefürchtet habe und du hast die stimmung wirklich unglaublich gut rübergebracht.
auch dein zeichenstil passt hervorragend zu dieser gruseligen geschichte und die musik genauso.
ich bin schwer beeindruckt!
