Last Stop - the animation by axl99 Last Stop - the animation by axl99
This is the finalized screenshot from my grad film short entitled "Last Stop". A little dedication to everyone who has or has once ridden on public transit :). Since I didn't make it into Ottawa's animation film festival, I thought I'd console myself by sharing it with everyone I know :D. This took a total of 6-8 months to complete from the initial concept to post production.

:star::star: Vimeo: [link] - this one's got better qual

Feature track "Next Move ft. Voice" by MOONSTARR of Public Transit Recordings - [link]

You can find more of Moonstarr's audio clips on his MySpace here - [link]

If you've never heard of the Broken Beat music genre, this man will make you a believer!

Finding music for Last Stop was freaking murder, tried improv jazz, reggae, surf guitar, scat.... Nothing worked. Seriously, there must've been some kinda funky karma at work.. I mean, a film about public transit featuring music from a label like PUBLIC TRANSIT RECORDINGS? What're the chances? I'm still counting my lucky stars.

["TOS violation?" - old news really....]

When I tried submitting my film to AtomFILMS, I was soon given an email that vaguely stated it was rejected because I violated section 4 of their terms of service [link] . It said that my film should not be "indecent, libelous, defamatory, obscene, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, illegal, harassing, contain expressions of hatred, bigotry, racism or pornography, or are otherwise objectionable, or that would constitute or encourage a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party or violate any law."

Maybe there was some misunderstanding or perhaps the general subject of public transit was deemed too sensitive for viewers.

I have no idea. But I posted all that here because I thought it would be an interesting discussion topic while mulling over the scenes in the film.

Hah, I loved this! xD I'm from a little town where public transportation isn't something I have to put up with most days, but the few times I've ridden a bus . . . this is what it was like.

This is soo true especially with my bus it's like I have to fight for a seat and when I get the seat somethings a matter with it or I'll be getting off. This was perfect and the girl was awesome (i'm just like her pratically) she conveyed the perfect reaction that I see all the time with other public transit riders!!!
