This animation has dark themes. Do your crying somewhere else.

Anastasia was the worst person I ever had to work with. Crazy bitch didn't even know how to keep an accent.
If I had loyal fans who, let's say, actually bothered to read my journal for once and grabbed the opportunity to voice a main character, I'd never had to beg for the help of a person who can't even speak proper English to play a British character.

I hate everyone.

"DenNIM", my second animation for school and this wasn't just a random assignment, but for my exam. This was serious business, unlike my previous school animation.
This time I made the choice to make something original/for myself. I'll glady accept the possibility that nobody will watch this because of that, since the grade I recieved for this animation was so preposterously high, I lost the motivation to care. I'm cool. A piece of paper told me so.

Like my journal said before, I was planning to change and edit a few things before showing it to you, but I actually learned something from my teacher: sometimes you just need to shut up and leave it alone.
Though, contradicting what I just said, that doesn't stop me and I might as well make these changes later. But not now.

Hopefully you'll enjoy my first animated feature.

* My character, Damy, was used as a base for Dennim.
* "Mind" was originally spelled "Minned". Reverse the letters, that makes "Dennim".
* Dennim's voice is Kevin's voice in the "Ed, Edd and Eddy Highschool" series.
* When listening to Dennim, you can sometimes hear Edd's voice. The person who voices Highschool Edd also voices Highschool Kevin.
* Mind's mother was voiced by two people; the scream was provided by my sister.
* Mind's mother is loosely based on the woman in the painting at the beginning of the game "5 Days A Stranger".
* Dennim turns me on.

Can you please tell me where can I watch this animation. I can't seem to find it anywhere.
VampireMeerkat Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
This is the animation.

I thought there was like a short movie or something... I mean that's what I read in the wikia...
VampireMeerkat Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't understand the complaint, it's what this submission qualifies as? Even a short movie can be as short as 5 minutes and uploaded at Deviantart.
I mean, at my school this was projected on a screen. That's the best it did.
Skele-Frisk-20 Featured By Owner Edited Jan 22, 2017  Student Digital Artist
No, I mean I didn't see the movie. I only saw the black and white image of Mint. I read the whole plot at the wikia but I cant find the movie anywhere to watch it.
VampireMeerkat Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Really? Are you looking at the submission on your phone, perhaps.
It is a Flash animation, you need a device or browser that has Flash Player in order to see it, otherwise you're indeed stuck staring at the preview image.
Skele-Frisk-20 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2017  Student Digital Artist
You are right. I couldn't see it because I was trying to find and watch it from my phone. I loged in from the computer and watched.It was amazing. Thanks for telling me.

Inspired by Clock Tower 2: struggle within/Clock Tower: Ghost head, nice
ElizaCheezy Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2016
thumbs up! I could never, ever have the patience to not only do an animation more than a minute long but also I can't do lip syncing for my life. My animations are random and abstract anyways. I am obsessed with dark stuff now and even my adorable avatar (icon thing?) has a dark story, meaning I loved this. The horrifying thing is, I actually laughed at Dennim. Ya know what? Bullet point time!

*cute art
*disturbing and interesting story
*voice acting for Dennim is on point

Thank you for your soul. I mean time.

I enjoyed this. I would totally watch his if it were a series or a movie! It kind of reminds me of all the dark and tragic anime I love to watch.

Oh wow...
AndroideIllogique Featured By Owner May 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I still hold to the fact that this is probably one of your best works. 
I would really love to see more stuff like this. Not that I would ever try to dictate the things you do, of course, but I really do just think this is brilliant. 
The premise is very interesting, of course. But that set aside, I very much enjoyed the music in this. It ties everything together so well. Not to mention the style you've drawn this in. 
I really like that this is your own, original style. It's very unique. 

I'm sorry to be gushing over this the way I am, but it's just so good.

I absolutely LOVE this animation. I saw it for the first time years ago and recently I remembered it while I was just hanging out in my room. I couldn't remember the name or what site I originally saw it on, but I craved watching it because I remembered how blown away I was by it the first time. I couldn't find it ANYWHERE and imagine my surprise that I try searching for it again today and I find that its not only on DA, but it's even in my freaking favorites and I'm following the Deviant that made it! XD It's just as awesome as I remembered it and I absolutely LOVE Dennim's character & design.

I am bookmarking this on my computer so I can find this whenever I want to watch it again. I can see from the description that you weren't confident that many people would like it or even watch it but I don't understand why anyone wouldn't. This animation is excellent! :D

emerald2 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014
This is such a lovely and sad animated feature.  The animation here looks very astounding, especially the final scene. I can't help but wonder how long it took to do this animation? However long it took, it seems like whatever  preposterously high grade you got, you certainly deserved. 
VampireMeerkat Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't even remember anymore. Not more than 3 months, I'm sure.
emerald2 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014
Oh well, it's alright if you don't remember.  If you're right, and it did take you three months, that's really cool.  Thanks for answering my question.
boom-lay Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2014
Are there other comics?
VampireMeerkat Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Just the ones you can find in the DenNIM section.
M4tth3w1997 Featured By Owner May 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
The animation is a brilliant and chilling concept but where did you come up with the name Dennim?
VampireMeerkat Featured By Owner May 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Dennim was Mind's (the main girl) name how it was first spelled, in reverse; "Minned".
XxChocolatexHeartsxX Featured By Owner May 3, 2014
This is such a cool idea~ Creepy but cool. Gave me chills but in a good way. :D The characters are very compelling and interesting to watch. You're so creative with characterization! Also the fact the key was shaped like the knife and that they're really the same person...Ya. Just goodness. :meow: Lol. xD All around awesome work! :love:

I like this Dennim character... Reminds me of, well, me...
Now I can't stop saying, "Aren't I a GOOD friend...?" To my girlfriend. Also, just me kinda ranting now, but I can totally imagine an epic battle between Edd, Ed, Eddy, and Dennim. But that's just me.

Depressing and very deep.  I like it.
xxMadameDerpxx Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013
I love it I love it I love it I FUCKING LOVE ITla in love la in love la in love ... Just came back to watch this for like the 100th time. Though I've always wondered, what's the song that plays when Mind's mother finds her dead/the whole sequence that reveals what happened in reality and the song for the credits? 
VampireMeerkat Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I know it's by "The Prophecy", but the soundfile in my possession doesn't mention a helpful title.

This is one of my all time favourite animations on DA!
The music and everything really just sucks you in.  <3
AndroideIllogique Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is just my favorite piece of yours. 

Stepping away from Ed Edd and Eddy, this is something original that you did. It's absolutely wonderful. I know you probably don't care, but I really just adore this. I'd offer more opinions, but because you don't care and because it's midnight, goodbye.
