A sort of spiritiual sequel to The String, which can be viewed here.

It's an allegory of sorts, but I've decided to leave it's interpretation more up to the viewers this time around instead of imposing my own explanation onto it. I hope you enjoy.

Feel free to check out my other art as well.

Really nice

Loved the music along with the style. I think it's ironic that he makes all of those lifeless dolls while at the same time, he doesn't have a life. Huhu, irony is good. In any case, really nice animation <3

Awful.

Oh god, as if the string weren't enough.

I had honestly thought that this was going to be a lot better than it was.
It seems like you could have done this so much better. The animation doesn't fit the mood you were going for, and you did a really bad job of expressing the real 'meaning' of the video.

Seriously, put more effort in your stuff.

Hypnotic

I've been using this site for years, but have finally cracked and signed up for an account. This is all your fault.

Really nice flash. I don't know where you came up with the concept, but the execution is near flawless and so stylish. What it spoke to me about was being trapped- sticking to the course in life you've been given, or ended up with, and finding one day you're old and alone.

But what I really loved was the music- beautiful. In fact, first time through I totally missed the narrative. Reminded me very much of Philip Glass.


gopherguy responds:

Hah. I really like Phillip Glass too, I was even thinking about using something from The Hours soundtrack for this, but in the end it sounded too quiet and subtle for this so I went with something a touch bolder.
