Hi!

First off all, happy new year! Hope all of you are well. Just wanna share with you the latest updates on my upcoming short animated film, HUJAN DAN HIJAU. I'm now in an animation production of it and it is going well! Though the trailer was suppose to be ready for this week, I'm currently sick and stressed due to work from my full-time job and a lot of things. The trailer is now being postponed until 30th of this month and that gives me more time to polish the scenes I wanna show in the trailer.

Keep in mind that the trailer will NOT be shown here at Newgrounds, but will be at both Youtube and Vimeo. Reason is because I already have three trailers for GIRL & IT here at my Newgrounds page and I don't wanna cramp my video submissions here with trailers. I'm still brainstorming on short animated films exclusively for Newgrounds, but will let you all know on what'll happen in the future.

So guys, expect the trailer for HUJAN DAN HIJAU to go live at my Youtube channel (youtube.com/mohdfikree) or Vimeo (vimeo.com/mohdfikree) on January 30th of this year!

Take care!

Hi!

Great news! My recent mid-length animated film, GIRL & IT, won Special Jury Award at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival. The feedback was positive and what the audiences loved about the film the most was how engaging the story was.

This will be the film’s last appearance in the film festival for the enhanced version is on its way for late next year at Vimeo On Demand.

Speaking of next year, I will have two animated films ready, each for different film festival as World Premiere. One is HUJAN DAN HIJAU, which I announced few months ago, and the other is LONE, a sci-fi animated film about…y’know what, I’m not even gonna share it on what’s the animation about. Don’t want people stealing my ideas, haha.

Also, be sure to follow me at my SoundCloud page (http://soundcloud.com/mohdfikree) for next week I’m going to share with you the latest song (with English lyrics) for HUJAN DAN HIJAU: Original Soundtrack.

Anyway, that’s all I can share right now. Take care!

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.

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,

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.

Hi!

What an awesome day for me and my 40-minute short (or feature) animated film, GIRL & IT, at the 10th Edition of the Dubai International Film Festival! My film was competing with 15 short/feature films and won Special Mention. Now Special Mention may not be a prize money or a trophy, but certificate is still better than nothing.

Hi!

I'm pleased to finally announce that my latest short film (or 'feature' if in USA), GIRL & IT, to screen at this year's 10th Dubai International Film Festival as World Premiere. My recent short film, CHILDREN (2011), was at DIFF two years ago as World Premiere and also won Special Jury Prize. To be honest with you all, I don't consider CHILDREN to have proper storyline, just more of an experimental, but still, I'm glad that a lot Newgrounds members here enjoyed and also got the movie to the front page.

The total length for GIRL & IT is 40 minutes. Though the original format of the movie is 2K, it will still be converted to 1080p with letterbox for film festivals. You can also check out GIRL & IT's latest premiere trailer here: http://youtu.be/C3RoMZ4IwcQ
Enjoy, and I will update you if the movie is going somehow outside the Middle East.
