Nothing Gold Can Stay

I created Nothing Gold Can Stay from concept to completion in 36 hours for the 2015 Sarcastic Animation Jam on Newgrounds. Proving to myself that animated content could be produced in such a short time, Nothing Gold went on to win both the Judges’ 1st Place and the Audience Choice Award in the Jam.
