The entirety of this was made over the course of the last seven days. I'm actually really surprised at how efficient I was here, since I managed to get around 25 seconds done each day.

Even though the actual animation is not pristine or anything and the frame-by-frame is sort of choppy and shaky, I'm proud of how this turned out, mainly due to the atmosphere of it and the story. I think this time it actually has some meaning behind it. Also, this time I actually have some REAL INSTRUMENTS in the music. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? OMG. Except I mixed them in with synthesized versions of themselves so it's occasionally hard to tell. Oh well.

Edit: Wow, I'm genuinely amazed by the quality of these reviews! There's been a lot of thought put into each and every one of them. Thanks so much, everyone!

Nice, very strong messages.

I sincerely enjoyed the overall messages (there were many) as well as the music and overall mood. Although my opinion of flash animations without words is such that, if I want to watch a video with only music, I'll watch a music video. Luckily, this flash broke that barrier, and the incredible story overshadowed the fact that there were no words. Heck, I believe this goes way beyond anything remotely similar to it, and I would dare to even go as far as saying this is art. For example my favorite aspect of art is how the entirety of the animation itself is black and white but the emotions were expressed with color. Awesome job my friend.

Video reminded me of Smile! made in 2004

The masks idea is pretty cool and often used by psychologist to explain how we go through life. Though the mayority of psychologist believe we have nothing behind those masks its more romantic to think that we do.
That this idea has been done before because of that populair vision is there for a given but this video has a nice more down to earth story compared to the others without losing the super atmosphere. Good job!!!

Unoriginal but good

I have seen this idea many times and its been used in many different ways. Some good, some bad, some just plain stupid. Yours I count as good. Well done.
