This animation is about facing your barriers. In what ever you want to achieve. All the things that may hold you back.You have to know your limits or weaknesses, turn around and confront them. In my case it was laziness, lack of motivation and so I represented this as rust, (you get rusty when you don't use your talents).So I tried to confront it by animating more.

This animation helped me break this rust literally too. So whatever it is ; disbelief, lack of confidence, others telling you you cant do it, challenges. If your truly determined you can reach your potential by just confronting these things. Everyones capable of achieving so much in life, but they never think they can. Make use of your talents, your light, your true potential and be determined whatever it may be, all it takes is the determination to sacrifice and give all you have until you reach your goal.

As you improve and get stronger, so will the challenges in front of you get bigger,stronger, but overcoming these bigger challenges is what brings true joy.It is when we grow.

Even if you don't reach your goal exactly. You'll live a life without regrets. I hope you can see this. This was inspired by a famous Poem.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others."

-Marianne Williamson

To the guy below me. The red guy wasn't losing. He was only toying with the other guy.

The fact that the red guy was losing early on made it very difficult to cheer for the black stick figure. =( I still kinda wanted the 'rust' to win. It seemed like he was being picked on, especially since you associated him with darkness, an element which helps hide people and aids in rest.

The animation was stellar, though. I couldn't stand the song, but that has nothing to do with the song's quality; I'm just not into that kind of music. And in any case, the video didn't suffer for it. So I'll give this a 4/5: not perfect, but very, very close.


Rated 5 / 5 stars
