Hint!: You should probably watch this movie at least twice all the way through in order to catch everything!!

This movie was rather experimental in it's animation as well as it's story. I've played around in past movies with using photographs (peach moon) and hand drawn images (The Night I Was Almost Murdered...) and so this time I decided to combine the best of ALL worlds and see what would happen. This movie contains photographs, hand drawings, photoshopped drawings, paintings, cardboard cutouts, and characters drawn in flash. As for the story, I wrote out all the different scenes I wanted to use and then scrambled and reorganized them so that the story is presented in a nonlinear fashion

I liked it.

I didnt really get it, it was weird, it was sad, but I liked it. :)

So the robots were really people brought back to life who then got depressed and killed themselves?


Matt-Merrill responds:

something like that... the people weren't "brought back to life" tho. Try watching it again maybe and it should make more sense.

A truly beautiful peice of work.

I'll have to say, that story was pretty sad... I loved your method of, um, 'mixed media'!
Another thing, the style of art, went very well with the deep, scary, surreal music, and the almost sci-fi story. :)
