Master said he's make it worth my while if I finished this, so I did. I now earned a bowl of pudding. I've been so hungry in this cellar :

The theme for this NATA was 'butterfly effect' meaning that small things (a butterfly) can cause huge events (a tornado). However, I ddn't really like that idea and went for the other way around. Something that seems really big at the time has little to no repercussions. In the end, everything in life loops, so I imagine life itself does as well.

Had quite some fun making this, and although it's short, I hope you'll enjoy watching it.

While lots of people seemed to understand that it's humans vs nature, I noticed the primitive creature at the end, and thought that it might mean how we humans maybe wouldn't even exists in our current forms if little things in our evolution would've gone a bit differently, that also fits the butterfly effect theme.

I'm baffled. The message behind it all. It took me a while to understand, maybe because I'm tired, maybe because I'm high off my fucking head. The more I watched it, the more I got the message each time. Humans vs The World, Vice-Versa. Really gave a detailed picture of what we're doing to this beautiful Earth after it's offered us so much. But as most people believe, in the words of ol' George Carlin: "The planet will defend itself in the manner of a large organism." Let's just hope if we ever start anew we can do it for the better.

Amazingly well put together and executed. Everything from the smooth animation, the music, and the theme itself blended excellently.

I personally loved the acorn head person as a military soldier wearing a helmet.

Great video, interesting theme.
On a side note, I always thought it would be interesting to have other humanoid races such as those from Skyrim (i.e. Khajit or Argonian) or even the plant race in your video. Maybe then people would stop looking at the color of your skin...and start judging you by your coat, scales, bark, etc.

I thought the art style was beautiful, and the animation was incredibly smooth, even on my sub-par laptop that I'm watching it on.
As for the story, I suppose I'm not sure what I think. To me, it was simply looking at the way humans are destroying the Earth and themselves, but in this case it was plants. Which gives a rather interesting change in perspective.
Maybe I'm missing the point, or maybe I'm nailing it, all I know is that I enjoyed the art, the animation, and the story spoke to me in a way that pleased me.
Keep up the good work, sir.
