It was a real pain in the ass, to be honest... haha We only got like 3 months to do the whole thing, from concept, design, rough and clean animation and post production, so by the end all you wanted to do was to finish the film and sleep for a week!

Well, this was my final project at animation school. I´d love to see a prehispanic story been told the way Mulan or Pocahontas were told by Disney and that´s why I made this. However, it takes waaay to long to produce a minute of animation to consider a doing a sequel... hehehe But maybe one day :D

This is my student film, result of 3 to 4 months of hard work at VFS.
The story, however simple, is based on several myths from different cultures, being rebirth the main common subject.
It was also my first contact with traditional animation and have to say it was an awesome experience!

Hope you all like it.

She who wears a snake skirt! Two snakes! Hehe. I'm taking art history right now, the general education version, not for the art major one, and that was one of the first things we talked about.

Nice animation. I would love to see more. :D
