So it has been another rough month, and I've been rather negative and pessimistic this whole time. Although I know there are some obvious flaws with this video, I'm going to use this space to say what I actually like about it for once.

1. I tried a different art style, and I think it worked out fairly nicely.
2. I managed to completely change the genre of the movie from a comedy to something more serious in about five days, and it came out a bit better than I anticipated.
3. Although not all the sections are frame-by-framed, I am proud of how smooth certain scenes (like the one where he is standing by the car) turned out when viewed simply for the animation quality.
4. I also redid the music a few times because of the change of genre. I like how that turned out.
5. I made a fully functional 3d rig in Blender for the main character. Although I didn't actually end up using it at all, it's the first time I've done that from scratch.

yeah so thanks for listening and supporting me so far in NATA.

The style and the animation seriously reminds me of the game "Another World" from 1991, thus I very much enjoyed watching it. From a techincal standpoint the only thing I believe could've been added was some more camera movement in a couple of scenes, and perhaps the ending was a tad rushed. Not exactly sure about what's going on, although I could make an assumption or two.

I do hope you'll make some more animations in this style.
Also, on a completely unrelated note: Ubuntu logo! ;D

It's been a very long time since I wrote a review, but this movie deserved it!

I loved the concept! Very clever idea and well executed! I actually felt sad for the man who, at first, only seemed to have a very crappy day but ended up seing the universe around him gradually disappear into thin air. The shot of his wife waving at him seemed like it was foreshadowing it all, but maybe it's just me :P

The animation was pretty awesome also, I always love it when an animator are able to break away from their usual style. There's only one shot at the end (the one where the man spins on himself) that seemed to have some clunky 3D, but that's it.

And like Luis mentioned, I would've done the whole thing silent, since the dialogue don't bring anything meaningful to the short.

Oh! Gawd, this was really well produced. its easy to understand every scene without much thinking and the story is very fluid (if that makes any sense). Yup i love the style and the camera shots. The only thing that i really hated was . . . i cant think of anything. Anyway awesome job.
