Here's a hastily compiled trailer. This isn't any sort of 'official trailer' or nuthin, not even one for festival approval, just something I fancied doing on my last night in the UK. Its a little pretentiously long so my apologies I just got carried away.
As always, comments are more than welcome. I tried to include a bunch of new bits for you university folk who may still have eyes on this.

Anywho that's it for now. Am off away for a month. Hopefully by the time I return the film will be accepted in multiple festivals and we'll be millionaires. That's how the animation industry works right?
The song is a cover of Restless Farewell by Mark Knopfler. Picked it for the beautiful & relevant lyrics, altho must say on watching it back it is more a folly of my own than anything 'correct' for the film. Whatever - im tired and not enough time to change nothin.
Oh ev’ry foe that ever I faced
The cause was there before we came
And ev’ry cause that ever I fought
I fought it full without regret or shame
But the dark does die
As the curtain is drawn and somebody’s eyes
Must meet the dawn...
Oh, ev’ry thought that’s strung a knot in my mind
I might go insane if it couldn’t be sprung
But it’s not to stand naked under unknowin’ eyes
It’s for myself and my friends my stories are sung...
Oh a false clock tries to tick out my time
To disgrace, distract, and bother me
And the dirt of gossip blows into my face
And the dust of rumors covers me
But if the arrow is straight
And the point is slick
It can pierce through dust no matter how thick...
