@01:52That's unbelievable. When she leaves the colors' gone and time has stopped, and when she's in the tower, everything is back to normal. I say that's good and bad. She can't even leave.

@01:45What a gem of a movie!
The girl, the city...the clocktower-everything
was done so beautifully!
Fantastic film, although the one thing that I think could have been done better was the music when she stepped out of the clocktower for the first time- I think the stopping of the music was a bit abrupt...
But other than that, bravo!!

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-04-19
The Clocktower by ~Arenyth Wow! The images of this movie are so beautiful and joyful! This is a nice concept too. This is a student project of high quality. Nice and smooth animation and creamy lighting like I love them. ( Suggested by nickeatworld and Featured by feawen )
:iconsimsterd:
This is brilliant, a story of a girl who wishes to be of the outside world but can't due to circumstance. A masterpiece illustrating the benefit of sacrifice and the belief that we cannot have our cake and eat it too
A bright set of coloring and a gentle tone that sets the way for a pretty much happy ending that leaves us with a fondness for the character
We feel for her and hope that she will one day see those balloons without ever having to spin again.
All in all it was a good piece and beautiful message
What do you think?

@02:00She is the binding of the world, the very structure of time and space, without her full effort and work, the world suffers, and even while the world is frozen and suffering, she must suffer, as she doesn't get to experience what everyone else does. I'd say if there's a story within this story, it's that there is always that single person, doing everything they can, making them self miserable, just so other people can have a thoroughly enjoyable time. Maybe she represents a mother, giving up her life for her children. I don't know, but this is truly amazingly animated, the textures are beautiful, the shading and lighting are extravagant, but mainly the models and animations flow did it for me, it is so smooth, and so realistic, like a 120 frame per second stop motion claymation movie. 

10/10
