“Fear Me Not” by Malika Whitaker

Sensual rotoscope animation about “overcoming the fear of commitment”, Fear Me Not by Malika Whitaker:

    Really very beautiful. Masterfully done! The only complaint I had is that the two women looked a bit too much alike. Could have been easily remedied by giving her partner a different hair color or body type.

    Most intelligent use of rotoscoping I’ve seen in a good while.
    Didn’t have the problem Gray is describing.

    I loved it. Normally I can’t stand rotoscoping, but this was a mixture and came out very well. And the story was incredibly sweet. Brava!

  • Iritscen

    Yeah, this was really well done, and it speaks on a universal level. It’s probably relatable to anyone who’s been in a relationship.

      Definitely, it’s about love regardless of genres in the end.

    I’m not gonna read into it too much why the two characters did look similar. Didn’t have a problem with it though because sometimes it doesn’t matter. The main character was distinct enough that it didn’t matter.

    After watching it, all I can state is Whew! I was worried for a while there…things got kind of choppy in the middle. I didn’t know how it was gonna end.

    That mentioned, it is decent storytelling. And, I’ll echo that the rotoscoping (if it was partial or mostly*) wasn’t distracting. I guess there were so many scenes and it was paced quickly enough that it was more effective as compared to some use of rotoscope.

    *hopefully, all the character animation wasn’t entirely rotoscoped and was just well done. It is possible.

    Thank you for your comments.
    I never realised the two characters looked a bit alike, but I guess the narrative doesn’t leave much room to confusion about who’s who, right?
    I hope you liked the music, any comment is warmly welcome!
