***UPDATE*** Check out version 2 ->

Inspired by ppeppina's beautiful song "Hetki". As soon as I heard this song, I just had to make an animation for it.


Here are ppeppina's lyrics - in Finnish and in English

On elämä kummallista tosiaan - Life is very strange indeed

Täällä yksi yössä laulaa vaan - Here this one is just singing

Vaikka pitäis mennä nukkumaan - Even though it's time to sleep

Mut aika on huijari, pelkkä haamu - But time is a cheater, only a ghost

Tääl voi olla yö, mut tuol jossain on aamu - It might be a night here, but somewhere it's morning

Siellä heräilen parhaillaan - I'm just about to wake up there

Nää sävelet ilmassa soi yksinään - these melodies fly alone in the air

Ei niistä kiinnostu yksikään - and absolutely no one cares

Kuluvat sekunnit mua säestää - the passing seconds are accompaning me

Tää hetki on mun, jo nukkuvat muut - This moment is mine, others already sleep

Talo ja taivas ja piha ja puut - The house and the sky and the yard and the trees

En vois pyytää enempää - I couldn't ask for more

Mut hetken kestää hetki vaan - But a moment lasts only for a moment

Se on ohi ennen kuin huomaatkaan - It's gone before you know it


(1280 x 720 QT Movie)

*Note* The quality of the online streaming doesn't seem too great, but if you download the video you'll see it clearly in 720p :)

    Very beautiful! And I loved the idea with the earth's rotation and how the light changes throughout the day\night!

    this is absolutely gorgeous. it works so well with the song, and i love the paper textures. they give it whimsy. i kinda wish that the hitrecord logo at the end were just a bit brighter. but damn, i can't stop watching this. :)

    Thank you all for the kind comments!

    @yes-you-am thanks for the feedback. When I have a chance I'd like to swap out the bumper with one that matches the lighting and textures of the rest of the animation.
