I know the clocks don't show the same hour. Don't even mention it.
Sorry for not finishing this in time.
HAPPY BELATED CLOCK DAY!!
heh dethclock ... heh metalocalypse.
Well, this is a triumph for Clock Day, if ever there was one. From the animation style, through the portrayal of the characters and the gamut of emotions they go through, to the classical score used, this piece is absolutely gobsmacking.
Where to start lavishing praise upon this piece? Well, for starters, when you watch it again, the silhouette of DeathClock standing above the scaffolding messing with a pulley system shows great foresight and true dedication to your craft. The decision to shrink the clock face in the hole and leave a largely black space across the front of the clock is brilliant, particularly when you've used a lot of facial expressions to convey a great deal of emotion and you've not used voices or speakonia.
The little things have been done right, with things like DogClock rotating on the spot, when called by his master, before walking demurely away. Everything has been well thought through, complete with things like rehydrating Strawberry, before bashing him into the landscape, which I never saw coming. Though I probably should have, it was incredible, because the laugh was from deep down and was 100% real and very much deserved.
As for the writing, it's a surreal journey and it crosses one massive continuity error in that he's big enough to be on a building site in one scene, then suddenly, he's a hell of a lot smaller than DogClock, being buried by him. Cunning writing device, or a little mishap with the writing that you hoped no-one would notice?
Still, this is a wonderful piece and it really goes to show that with good writing, careful development and a good amount of time dedicated to the project, you can write a fantastic piece and create it in time for Click Day... or a few days late :P

THANKS A LOT FOR YOUR REVIEW!!
About the building, I really didn't realize that, but it's a good point, my bad. You can always think of it as a very small building, it makes much more sense that way!
You cannot kill StrawberryClock
It's a berry. If you bury it, it will grow back into a strawberry plant and our king shall be reborn as its fruit.
It's a pretty smooth animation you made there. Nice use of PoltergeistClock as the grim reaper.
But I never heard about PoltergeistClock until you mentioned it.
love the plot, and love the music
GLAD YOU LIKE THEM!!
Very epic, even the dog is a clock! I would have like to seen death clock reappear at the end though, would have given it some solidarity.
And sometimes strawberry clock looks more like a radish lol I guess you were going for something that looks like it has feet
THANKS A BUNCH!!
And DeathClock was there in some way.
