First of all the the people downrating this film because of the "T" rating...

Are you fucking kidding me? Maybe you should go back and watch it again because you clearly didn't get the message the first time. It uses the same style of reflecting current society in a futuristic one as Orwell did, except in 1984 he was holding up the mirror to communism. Here, the author was reflecting capitalism, reflecting the world we live in now. My point is that what he shows in this film is exactly what teens see today on tv, in advertising, in movies and the like but Sarkazm is at least far more tasteful in his goals and serious creative merit. If you're offended by the guy's penis, then you must not go in to art museums much, in which case I feel extremely sorry for you. I hope you don't end up raising your family completely devoid of art until your kids are 18.

More importantly, this is one of the best animations on NG. The movement itself could have been better and smoother but all the static things and the environment were masterfully drawn, beautiful even. I really got the sense between the grungy slums and the sterile, fake city. The voice acting was good but I could hear artifacts in the recordings and I think the voice volume levels were not balanced throughout the movie. The recording equipment wasn't doing it justice.

The story, man I can't even go into it because there is so much to take from this movie about society, advertising, culture, the future of mankind, the metaphors- it's all fucking amazing. I hope to see more videos like this from you. Cheers

The animation was great and the voice acting was pretty good too. I didn't like how unrealistic the characters were. They didn't question the "Great Dream" at all. I guess I just have a distaste for shallow characters like that, but that's not why I'm giving this one star. This was labelled as T for teen. Yeah right... It's false advertising and inconsiderate. It's a matter of principle for me to give this a low rating.

Not my usual type of short film..... But it gives you a message; loud and clear.

What a very engaging little short film. With so many underlying messages about society today. Thank you for this. Moving. Five stars.

Fantastic style and storytelling, but you rate your content as "teen", despite containing entirely to liberal use of nudity and very mature themes. I personally would have been fine with this movie if I'd known what was being presented, but I know there'll be some kid out there having to explain to his dad why the video he was watching had a guys dick flopping around for a few minutes. Quite frankly This title likely deserves an Adult rating. It features male and female nudity, sexual themes, heavily implied masturbation.... They are all used properly (aside from the nudity, I feel), but they were completely unexpected and not what I was looking for at the time.

Your animation style is very nice, but unconsistant, at times gliding along perfectly, and at other times showing nearly-2d doors or a drop in smoothness. Its still very nicely done - better than most of this site by half - but the inconsistency and the lack of a disclaimer for adult content are why I'm dropping this down from a 5 to a 4.
