"Prole 514 dreams about winning the Great Lottery. The lottery winner is transformed and allowed admission into the elite White society, where everyone is beautiful, young and happy and people spend their carefree lives solely on fun and partying. One day, 514's wish comes true... but was this what he really wanted?"

When I first saw how this started out my frist thought was "oh its going to be all artsy fartsy and in my face." Now that Ive finished "LUCKY DAY FOREVER" I can easily say its one of the best animations Ive seen in my life. The art style is fantastic, phenomenal even. I love how you portrayed the White society as bland, perfect, soulless beings with constant smiles. It really shows how terrible being "perfect" can be. I also enjoyed the amount of detail you put into the backgrounds and the design of all of those wondrous skyscrapers up against the brown shantytowns. The contrast between the lower class citizens and the White society draws great parallels to what society is like in the real world. The constant sex-filled, empty promise-including advertisements from the rich, famous, beautiful, and "unique" beings passed down to what are considered the crappier people is equivalent to how materialistic and sexually obsessive we are as a society. The atmosphere in this animation is palpable, as without music and dialogue for the most part, it leaves the viewer to take in more from the animation and emotion given by the people, environments, and settings. The character designs are fantastic, I really liked the design of the guard who scanned Prole 514's wrist. The idea of this White society feeding off of the people both physically and financially could have been done poorly due to complicity, but its shown in such a simple way (with a simple lottery) that it makes the false hope of reaching perfection even more tangible. I believe this flash is perfect in every way, it has a great ending, beautiful detailed backgrounds and a unique and clever art style. This flash has an attitude and its obvious you werent afraid of what to say and how to express it, and you did so very well. You tackled a topic not mentioned as often as it should be, and you made this world that has great contrasts inside of it, and parallels with ours.

Art 10/10- The backgrounds are beautiful, so much attention to detail. The animation is crisp and smooth with a fantastically unique art style and character designs.
Sound 10/10- Good, sincere voice acting coupled with the hilariously over the top voices made by the Whites and great use of music, and lack of music to help heighten the atmosphere.
Concept 10/10- You tackled the topic of materialism, false promises, and impossible perfection in a way with a lot of great symbolism and use of parallelism.

Overall 10/10- Certainty one of the best animations on this site, and one of the best Ive ever seen!
