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.

Simply amazing.

The music, the quality, everything was awesome. It's nice to see you're working on things other than video game parodies, and showing your true talent of flash animation. Even when there was nothing going on on the screen, I could still bob my head to the great techno beats. So in conclusion, grade A flash, and hope to see more from the world of NEO-C.
