"Ever Danced with An Angel?" Starring Rooney Fruits the Angel Dancer!

My bro-in-law Adam Kelley and I just finished our first animated short called "Ever Danced with an Angel? Starring Rooney Fruits the Angel Dancer! The above pictures are the stills from it. It's only a 20 sec. clip, pretty brief but hope you dig! Rooney's had a long day. Perhaps a special potion will PEP him up?

We entered it into a animation competition and need your vote(s) - a 5 star rating if you could! We have to advance to Round 2. Winners that advance to R2 will be announced on Tues night. Voting closes soon so please do so quickly if you are game. There are 3 Rounds in all. Final selections go to an awards ceremony in August at the Sydney Opera House in Australia!! Winner gets funding for future projects, plus state of the art computer programs! This is a big deal for us - Help!
Here is the link:

Would really appreciated FB shares and twitter shout-outs. Spread the word! Vote early, vote often - You can do so multiple times!!

And now for your viewing pleasure, here is the original watercolor rendition of Rooney Fruits the Angel Dancer, created by me and the NAMER Steve Sallese. Steve does the original abstraction, I create the visual character, then Steve bestows a name. Started back in 10th grade HS Chemistry class. The entire collection of SHAPES from 1992 to 2010 will be released as book this fall, along with a slew of other fun stuff. Stay tuned!
