An experimental animation to the song 'Ruler of Everything' by Tally Hall. I have arranged a series of images and symbols that combined with the lyrics of the song will encourage you to contemplate the meaning. What is going on here?

Trippy as hell!

I concur with Jordan Duchnycz, Spazkid, and Pale Rider on this one. The crazy-ass imagery definitely makes this top ten material. Even though I didn't get the meaning behind this; that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it.

When it comes to the graphics, there was a nice mix between gradients, conventional shading, imported photos, drawings, tweened cutouts, and frame-by-frame. It takes a delicate hand and careful decision making to make all those come together with a very pleasing result. Plus, the musical timing was swell. However, I think you should cut back on your filter usage because that can make older computers lag. Sound, It didn't have sound effects, but it's a music video. Plus, I liked that Tally Hall song that you chose. To be honest, I have NO problem with people using commercial music in their flash as long as the song fits the cartoon/game. Content, While I don't really get it; the surreal feeling made up for it. Your direction is excellent, and I would love to see more work of this caliber from you and the rest of the Clock Crew.

{+}
-Clever use of mixed media
-Excellent direction
-Great music and timing
-Original

{-}
-Could have used less filter usage
-The fact that I didn't get what was going on, but that's not important.

Overall: Creatus, how would you like a ten from me?

Great

My only complaint is that the music is much louder than the voices, making them difficult to make out. Other than that, great job!

I liked it

Animation is...no wait, proper animation is hard in general.
I'll give you that. The music video is strange yet catchy. A few shots did look "pixelated", whether you wanted it that way or not I don't know. I am not a fan of meaningless random pictures morphing into different shapes and sizes. This is still a beautiful work of art and I applaud you for that
