Oceans serve as a home for canals, which limit and conceal them into a narrow, concentrated water-pathway.


- Look at that...

I feel as if I've been curled and compacted to fit tightly into place within a single shelf of a 20-shelf compartment.
Thank you, mysterious frontpage-organizing force /"Mr. Fulp(s)".

Great stuff

I was very much impressed at how you made such an artsy film. I especially liked how some of the weird, even crude animation contrasted with the live-action bits. I really love how the water moves in the ocean with some really great color effects. I am assuming it was a metaphor for life as the whole thing was pretty incomprehensible. I can find symbolism in this all day, like how the drain in the bathtub looks like it has a cross on it. It was extremely creative and I am glad you got recognition for it.

I have no idea what I just watched, but it was ok.

Great movie, very good style. Problem is, I'm totally confused to its actual meaning. However, that's probably my fault anyway.
Good Job!

Ahhhh how did I miss this???

Kenny boy! I can't believe how you always impress me. Such young mind but big creativity!
Thank you for using my piece, just today I've watched that one of my audio submissions was being used and I was so happy to know that you used it.
I loved this, I really did. The atmosphere mixed with the SFX chosen was the perfect combination. Your animation is improving really nicely, you should be proud of yourself.
Try to listen to Aphex's "Baskhu3epnm" and see what comes to your mind, I think it's a great song for your style.
I really hope to see more stuff from you soon. You'll be seing some of mine pretty soon too, can't wait for your thoughts of it!
I hope one day you return to Argentina, because I've told you, one day you and me will make a video! ^¬^
Take care!

Ah, Andy boy! I haven't heard from you in a while. Thanks so much for the wonderful review - it really made my morning, and probably the next 21 hours to come, as well.
The visuals that came to my mind after listening to your piece "pups" was really much of what inspired this.
Its definitely one of my favorite of your pieces that you've submitted to the NG audio portal so far, along with "short Kiss".
I've just listened to a sample of "Baskhu3epnm"... it makes me feel very free, while moving in a concentrated way - performing a task with loose instruction.
I'm going to try to find and listen to the full version.
I'm excited to see some of your new work soon, also! I've been waiting. :p
And OhYes... I definitely hope to one day return to that land of highly interesting road signs, among other things. It isn't looking like it will happen in the very near future, but there's still a chance that I might return within the next few years.

It's a piece of work, no lie. Something different never hurts. Im not all into the art and deeper meanings, but I still appreciate it to a certain degree. Although I thought the guys penis was a little bit unecessary. Amazing graphics at certain points, nice ambience. And dont be douches to all the people who dont completely understand this piece. good job though.

Morbid and Creepifying...

I actually kinda liked this one. HOWEVER, I'm a bit strange, so anything that I like must be a bit strange as well. This reminded me of CAT SOUP.
If you've never seen that animation, then another version of you must have seen it in his/her own dimension and the slow but inevitable breakdown of interdimensional borders is causing leakage from your alternate self's subconcious to pass into your own subconcious leading to this type of artistic expressionism.

Someone else said that you were simply throwing out images and sounds and stuff to try to make us feel something. Perhaps this is the case only if we have no images and sounds of our own. The farther down the rabbit hole you go the less sense things make.
