"Prole 514 dreams about winning the Great Lottery.

Absolutely disturbing.

I haven't seen any of your previous work before, but I must say that this is some very deep stuff. I'm extremely disturbed and almost in a state of shock. I was really uncomfortable when watching this. This is most likely because I tend to follow the 'happier' and brighter side of life, and I generally have a preference to avoid the scary, morbid, hyper-sexualized, and so on, but hey, that's just me!

In spite of the fact that this places direct fear into my mind, I applaud your expert animating skills, the great voice work, and the chilling soundtrack. The plot is so full of tension that I almost had to stop the video several times just to reflect on what I had just seen.

I definitely got a 'Matrix' sort of vibe from this (which btw, also scared the living hell out of me, and made me very uncomfortable).

What I interpreted as the main points of the video were along the lines of:
- Never try to become something you are not, it only ends in a hollow fantasy.
- Always remember that things are not always what they seem.

I also feel that there was a blatant message to the 'elite' figures of our society. Very well done.

I'm going to clue up because I feel like I'm rambling. Overall, fantastic job, you're certainly going to cause me to have nightmares (yeah I know, I'm far too sensitive for my own good! :P Haha!).

It was... interesting. I love the animation, the plot twist was unexpected ( for me), and the ending was sad (and the cycle continues...).The message I got was to appreciate yourself for who you are, and not live your life wishing you were someone else, even if they do seem "perfect" in every way.
Damn it all, this video very tragic. I spent over 10 minutes watching this poor man, this "prole", live his pathetic life, only to end up in an even worse position.
Whether this comment is useless or not, this is my opinion. Thank you for creating such a wonderful flash, but my personal experience was marred by the anti-climatic ending.
4/5

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