EDIT 3* Hahah. Woo hoo. Thanks Tom, I think, for putting this is in the serious shorts section. Great! :) Also, for some time now I've been trying to bump the score up to a 4.00 and it just hasnt been working, but its finally there thanks to you guys :0

EDIT 2*I would like to say to all who have appreciated this work: Thank you so much! The audience of this piece is unbelievably suprising. Hmm. Oh ya I would also ask if some of you guys could suggest this to the noir section or mabey serious shorts. mabey together we can get it in, i dunno. thanks alot! :)

EDIT 1*Front page! I love newgrounds! Thank you so much for your support! Also thanks to all who tried desperatly to discover the meaning behind this animation! It makes me feel good! :)*

I planned this one out pretty graphicly in my mind. I had planned the elevator scene before I even started working on scene one. So after about 7 months of off and on work, its done. For this guy, I focused on high contrast and extreme saturation as well as no saturation at all. I also focused on the theme, which may be hard-core invisible to you guys, but I would love to see some reviews which try to guess the moral of the story, so to speak. Enjoy and thanks for watching!

Guessing the theme

Is it about goverment (or other forces) controling our lives?
BTW, it was a great animation.

scared my very soul...

that was incredible, with all the simbolizing and all thoough, if i understand correctly, the guy wound up going to heaven, yet he killed himself (mortal sin) and there's a scene representing him abandoning the faith (walking away from the cross), so he should've gone to hell, i think....

anyway great job....

well put together

although i didnt get much of it but here goes:

i thought that at first we are riding down our life till the brink where we inprison our selves of the brinks of "rutine" and then some think life is pointless at this point so they look to there past to see the "good times" they had but in the end we know we will be trapped in our darkness that we have created because we didnt do anything to stop this, and some times when it gets to this point, we think on suiciding ourselves.

PHEW! k that was my opinion on this, it took me a bit to understand it, but thats what i think it was.

anyway great animation and ty for sharing this. 5/5

Very good, but a bit complex.

That... was fucking BRILLIANT!!!.
Sadly however I didn't really get the meaning (a lot of the pictures made no sense) until I read other reviews describing it being about heaven and hell and past lives.

Aussi/also. VERY good coloration/cinematography etc. Loved the atmosphere of it all, keep up the good work!. (99% Flawless!)
