goodbye... forever!

vimeo

Hey here’s my second year film, Goodbye Forever Party! It’s about a person named Lilith and her struggles with her job, mental illnesses and relationships. 

Most of the film is registered cutouts on a multiplane, which means that I would traditionally animate the scenes, cut out each frame but keep it registered to the pegbar, and then layer the pieces of paper on different planes of glass to create an illusion of depth.

This is the hardest I’ve ever worked on anything in my life, most of the animation was completed within the span of 3 months. If you like it, it would mean the world to me if you could share it and/or show it to people! 

Thanks for watching! 

I wish you would have gone with this beautiful smile in your face instead of sadness. Goodbye forever, to a stronger woman like you, Ymir.

Our friends asked about you.
Saying your name didn’t hurt like it used to.
I told them I haven’t heard from you,
And for months now that’s the truth.

This is the longest we’ve been apart.
Almost a year now but it feels like it’s been longer.
I still feel the cracks in my heart,
But every day without you I grow stronger.

What does the story of goodbye forever party mean to you? I love it so much and I feel like sobbing and I don't what the film means yet I do?? I just can't put it into words what is your message to be told in goodbye forever party

thank you so much! this means a lot to me.

goodbye forever party is kind of a big bowl of salad made of emotions and experiences that i wanted to put down into a film..

to me its about being a person who has trouble connecting with the world around them because of their own emotional limitations and the way that their mind works. its also about how even when you try as hard as you can to get better or leave something behind, sometimes you just cant. its also about how i think teletubbies have a weird element of surreal horror and how frustrated i am with my roommate.

lilith’s mental illnesses are basically mine and i really wanted to make something where i could truly relate to the main character because their mental state of being is the same as mine. theres a lot of things i wanted to say with the film and i thought about a lot of emotions and experiences while making it. its hard to pinpoint one specific thing. thank you for this ask!

No, I don’t care how many times he apologized or how many nights you spent crying over him. You can never go back to him, you can’t let him play you ever again. I know he’s been your best friend for years and that once upon a time he told you he loved you, but HE left you. He decided he didn’t want you, so now you have to move on and know that you are worthy. He’s going to regret leaving and he’ll come right back, but no you can never go back to him.
