A Blue Guy spends his life secluded from society, but a wake-up call pushes him into a lengthy stroll to the big city. Ignoring and rejecting everything around him, up until a certain point he is faced with a choice whether to act or not.

The visuals and animated soundwaves are heavily inspired by a scene from Ratatouille, in which I tried to animate the music itself, since Techno lends itself very well to digital graphics. I also tried to apply a full spectrum of color in its correct order as he travels on his long walk, as well as different colors that fit with the living beings seen throughout the video. Specifically for the people, I made eye-colors reflect their current emotions. The Blue Guy's eyes remain either blank, or just closed for most of the film until his own emotions are forcibly brought out by the choice to act or not at a critical moment.

I didn't have a long time to work on the project due to school, but it turned out as a great experiment and I'm content with the final product's look. Hope you'll enjoy both it and the song! You gotta act.

Just great.

Everything was like crystal, the graphics was sweet accompanied by the background of visualization of music.
To be honest, this is really an amazing flash.
Also a great addition of randomness, and craziness, something you should feel happy about.
You has cooked talent!

Something original, but....

Well, I am glad to see that you're finally pulling away from video game parodies. But, there is a problem with this. Although this was indeed original, you seem to use the exact same animation style as in all your other flash cartoons. If you want people to take you seriously as an original flash maker, you need to get as far away from your old flash as possible. That includes the style of animation you use. That is unless you could care less and want to use any style you want? Well anyways, that's the only constructive criticism I can give you on this. Good luck on future, original flash projects.

Well, the fact of the matter is, I draw the way I draw and I animate the way I animate. Regardless of what the project is, that's simply it. It has nothing to do with a specific style I would use soley for unoriginal past works. If your point is more that the animation itself wasn't very -good-, that would make a bit more sense. As stated, I didn't have a ton of time to work on it due to other project taking up a lot of time. Regardless, sorry if you didn't enjoy it because you don't like the style used. Can't really do anything about that.

Front page.

The animation was crisp and engaging. Lots of colors. If Iwere to have a seizure it would have been worth it. Very well done.
