-EDIT: A lot of people seem to be curious if there is a 'deeper meaning' to this flash. To answer your question, no. It's really just a cute (by my standards) little story that I wrote around the guidelines of the festival.-

Recently I was involved in a '48 hour short film festival', in which all films had to be made under 48 hours. Being an animator this was of course a very silly thing to agree to. Nevertheless, it was an interesting experiment. I got to stay awake for two days and drink funny tasting energy drinks with names like CITRUS ENERGY BLAST. Then after a night of recovery the fruit of my efforts was shown on DA BIG SCREEN, along with all the other entries. Mine didn't actually win, but they decided to make an extra prize just for me, being 5 double movie passes. To be honest free movies are probably better than the actual first prize, which was $300 worth of film equipment hire.
They also gave DVDs out to each group/person, all labeled as prizes for "BEST ENTRY CONTAINING SOMETHING THAT WAS ONLY ACTUALLY IN THAT ENTRY". Mine was 'best film containing animal slaughter', which meant I was given a film which according to the rating on the front of the box, also contains animal slaughter. I haven't watched it yet, but it's called 'The Cove', and claims to be a "Horror film spy thriller disaster movie corruption exposé."
One of the reviews on the front says it's "A cross between Flipper and the Bourne Identity," which must make it the silliest movie ever made, and I plan to enjoy it. I'm actually surprised a movie that takes itself seriously would put that review on the cover.
Someone else I know that entered got a movie about zombie nazis, which also sounds like a winning combination. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna have to borrow that off him. If any of you people have seen either of these movies I've mentioned then SHHHH DON'T TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS I MEAN IT YOU GUISE.
Now watch this crap I made.

Certainly not crap

I think that the best part of this film that you've put in here is the television sound effects, which was very simple and highly effective. The way that you've gone forward with the rapid evolution of the coffee stain sea and the "three stages of life" that you sampled here.

With the way that it rolled out, yes, I did see a lot of symbolism there and even though you didn't mean it, I feel you might have done so on some sort of sub-concious level, even when it was just a case of biting the hand that feeds you.

I love the way that this piece is presented and I'm glad you enjoyed your prize - you certainly deserve it!

i expected a vid made in 48 hours to be terrible, but this proved me wrong, cool animatons, and wierd funny awkward story line, good job, you should try staing up longer while making another short :)

Just the usual artwork, interesting.

Good luck on the next project, sir.

I quite enjoyed this, though the TV weirded me out a bit.

Just in case you didn't know, the Nazi Zombies idea is probably from the Xbox360 game Call of Duty: World at War. The game shipped with a multiplayer mode called Nazi Zombies that was very popular. Many members of my platoon where obsessed with it for a very long time.
