A short film that I worked on for about 6 months as a achool project. Some reviews say this is about drug addiction, others about capitalism, others about other stuff. That's cool with me. To be honest, when I made this I just thought it was about some drug fucked piggies living in a derelict city. So feel free to read into this if you want, but you don't have to. I sure don't.

Kind odd, but good moral

Well the movie was kind odd, about pigs ingesting piggy coins to feel full.

These are my thoughts about the clip.
- It kinda warn us about the use of drugs ie: Pigs taking in coins to get this sensation of being full (or high?)
- Also your kind of sacrificing your self to these drugs ie: The pigs were killing off of each other to get their fix. Remember Pig 4K he had a bag full of pig parts, or Pig 4M who kinda sold his skin for these coins.

I don't know these are my theories about this clip.
Over all it was good graphics, sound, etc...

Disturbing, thoughtful, and wise.

I can't exactly give this a 10, because it was so horribly disturbing to me, and while a review is essentially a display of the creator's talent, I also believe one's reception to it should factor in. Hence the 7.

Now, it was obvious that you had a point to make, and you made it clearly and concisely, and I applaud you for that. Your technical brilliance shows through very easily, and it is entirely apparent that you know what the hell you're doing.

Even so, I found some of the stylistic choices and the surreallism (especially the piggy bank scene) unbelievably disturbing to the point where it distracted me from the points at hand.

Regardless, it was a great submission and I hope to see more of your work in the future--let's hope that I enjoy those even more.

I find myself disturbed by your username, as there is no such thing as an aquatic owl.

Genius

I found this to be extremely graphic, but in a good way. It was perfect in length, and was surprisingly attention holding. To me the message was great because it all depended on who was watching it. Drug addiction, survival, etc. Nicely made, and keep up the good work!

Liked it

I thought it was about drugs addiction when i saw it. I think that it's very well done. A little harsh and cold, but I think the reality could be worst. I didn't like the final song... In my opinion, it destroyed the sensation caused by the movie. Then again, that's just me.

Sorry 'bout my english... A little rusty, I believe.

I liked it, but...

Heres the thing. i dont understand the concept. i understand rich people exploit poor people (and in no way am i trying to be offensive), but the mere fact that a kind would kill themselves for money is pure chaos. Even sacrificing a baby for money. Anyways, nice animation, good fluent movements. i hope to see more from u soon.
