Rated 5 / 5 stars

An amazing song with a great video.

I must hand it to you. This is an amazing peice of work you created. I think you made it a very complicated guess as to what was going on in this song. However, I feel the anwser is much more simple. This is just a drug song.
Anyways, you nailed it. This was an entertaining, origional, and beautiful video. Good job.

Excellent Imagery

The whole composition of this animation was EXTREMELY good, and your interpretation of these lyrics was not only interesting, but consistant and fitting. It's remarkable how differently you envisioned it; I could almost contrast it to my own mind's eye as it played.

Aside from general improvements you can still make technically in animationa nd graphics by refining your drawing style and continuing to practice, there was only one thing I found to be offsetting by this piece. In particular was the singing man, presumably Joe. While the lipsynching was very good, he barely moved otherwise. I would have really liked to see some sort of facial expression going on; most particularly when he freezes, as the emotion didn't come across at all. Even if your intention was to portray no emotion, it wasn't clear enough to distinguish.

Great work, though. Keep it up!

With this film I intended to give people pause for thought through creating an ironic contrast between the Aquarian sentiments of the song and the grim realities of modern life since those hopeful days of the `60s, as portrayed and indicated by the imagery.
Nevertheless, both Joe's detatched serenity and the peace symbol at the close signify hope for the rediscovery of the spirit of the `60s.

Very well done

I am a Neil Young fan, and it was intersting (very interesting) to see your take on his lyrics, as this song in particular is very hard to figure out. Nice job.
