Animation direction incorrect and fill not staying

After completely rewriting out my code and scanning it from top to bottom to work out why no animation was happening I tried changing its direction from 'forwards' to 'backwards' which 'fixed' the problem (but I would like to know why mine and Guil's differ if anyone could share that). However, once the fill animation plays it disappears, it does not stay green as in the video - the logo vanishes. Here is a link to my workspace snapshot: http://w.trhou.se/6gw8fj78cs

Thanks.

I copied your code and experienced the problem you described. I went ahead and changed both directions in the animation from backwards to forwards and it fixed the issue completely.
