Hi!

How are you all? Hope everything's alright. Now I wanna share with you the bad news. GIRL & IT has been delayed due to "marketing reasons". I am currently working on the enhanced version of the animated film and will also include scenes that couldn't make it to the original version (aka Film Festival version). Don't expect the film to come to Newgrounds anytime next year because of, again, "marketing reasons".

I would like to thank some guests here at Newgrounds, including Tom Fulp, for watching the film festival version of the animated film. I wish I could release the film here, but I need to have this project in the film market and being distributed around the world.

So how different is the enhanced version? Very much! Many people who have watched the film at both the film festival and private link gave me their feedback on the characters models, environment, sequences and etc. In the enhanced version, everything will be improved based on their feedback. So, the characters models are a lot better and more "real humans" and their facial expressions are especially much better (a lot of people complained about the Girl's facial expressions).

Here is its teaser poster below.

The good news? I am currently working on a new short animated film called HUJAN DAN HIJAU. Let's just say that it's a short emotional animation about the last two surviving "beings" trying to restore Earth's life, but in order to do that they must enter inside the "evil creature's belly" and find its heart to kill it to stop the never-ending pollution the creature been barfing out. That way they can reach for the "Mother's Heart" to resurrect her and bring back what was once a paradise.

HUJAN DAN HIJAU might be the animated film I’m finally going to publish as my second film here at Newgrounds for next year!

Here is its teaser poster below.

THE HEART OF THEM update

2014-06-13 09:06:19 by mohdfikree

Hi!

The animation production for GIRL & IT's sequel, THE HEART OF THEM, will begin in mid-July! The film is expected to be ready for 2016/2017 film festivals with the film's duration to be an hour and 5 minutes (65 minutes).

2991903_140266432991_Rotoh-Dina-NG.jpg

GIRL & IT's duration was 40 minutes, which considered as a mid-length animated film. The film was suppose to be an hour long but was cut short due to deadline.

Anyway, I'm super excited to start working on THE HEART OF THEM this July! GIRL & IT is expected to be available here at Newgrounds this December. Tom Fulp and other invited guests have already watched the film. Can't wait to share the full movie with all of you!

GIRL & IT coming to Newgrounds next year (UPDATED)

Updated

UPDATED: It seems that I will release GIRL & IT sooner than expected! The movie will be premiered at Newgrounds in December 19th of this year, not February 8th, 2015. With that being said, the movie will also be available Youtube and Vimeo, but two weeks after its premiere at Newgrounds.

Hi!

Good news! Next year I will finally have my award-winning 40-minutes mid-length animated film GIRL & IT watchable here at Newgrounds and other sites like Youtube and Vimeo. The movie will first be premiered here at Newgrounds (8th February) two weeks before to Youtube and Vimeo (22nd February). I'm wondering if I can actually fit a 40 minutes 1080p animated film here. I might reduce the movie to 720p if the file is larger than 500MB. The actual resolution of the movie is 2K (2048x858).

Hi!

Check out these two latest posters for GIRL & IT's sequel, THE HEART OF THEM. Below is the main poster of the movie.

2991903_139273940431_Atlartor2-GirlIt-Poster.jpg

Now the art in the second poster below is a creature you may recognize from my previous film.

2991903_139273950852_Atlartor2-GirlIt-Poster2.jpg

It is 'him', the monster from my award-winning short animated film, CHILDREN (http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/611711). The origin story for the monster will be revealed during the event in THE HEART OF THEM. That's saying CHILDREN now share the same universe with the ATLARTOR TRILOGY. This should be interesting.

Hi,

GIRL & IT (and its sequels) will have their names changed for film festivals in the USA and Europe. The reason is because it will be easier for audiences to follow them as trilogy. GIRL & IT there will be known as ATLARTOR: Girl & It. In February 1st, I will announce the final name for its second installment, but for now, it is just ATLARTOR 2.
