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!

a terrific work of art

this shows a alternate reality where people hide their identities and personalities. However there is a maverick(someone different from the others) who shows the masquerade is meaningless and helps move others in his direction.... GENIUS!

Great job.

You told an amazing story within 5 minutes, and no sound. Even if the animation is a little choppy, this still deserves a 10 for the unique idea.
