I tried to get this out before Halloween, but the Hurricane knocked the power out for a few days, so pretend it's a few days ago and go to digital hell!

FOLLOW UP:

By reading a lot of comments a lot of you seem to bring up the same few points, so rather then respond one by one I'm just going to put this up.

"There's no story and/or it's confusing" - There's a story, though it's technically a "back story". I wrote how the characters ended up in the place they are but didn't put it any where in the short. The purpose of the film was to simulate a hellish dimension or a really intense panic attack. The main character enters this place not knowing who he is or how he got there and is acting on feelings/instincts alone.He wanders from scenario to scenario clueless and terrified which, hopefully, makes the viewer confused and scared as well. Like if I'm trying to get you to see through the eyes of the character instead just follow his story. To do that I wanted the viewer to only have as much information as the man with no memory. My point being that I wasn't telling to tell a detailed narrative story, I wanted to take the viewer on a roller coaster ride of panic and terror!

"The animation is bad and/or the hair physics suck" I know, but I animated the entire short by myself using home computers and a hacked xbox 360 kinect. I never went to animation school and I don't have a team of animators. I am in the middle of making a feature film and took a break for a month to try and make a halloween special for the internet. This short is what I can accomplish on my own without any help or money in 30-40 days time.

"the sound is really noisey and/or loud" - I wanted to use a soundtrack of only noise to heighten that sense of dread and terror. I admittedly only listened to it on my home speakers, which include a subwoofer, etc. I never tested it in headphones or regular computer speakers, so my mistake if it sounds way out of sorts on some home speakers. If i ever decide to release it on DVD I might pay to get it remastered first.

While I can see there is somequality from an artistic point of view, There are a few visual aspects that bothered me:

First and foremost, the rapidly blinking red and blue tones were nausea-inducing. Honestly you should put a disclaimer somewhere, as this has been known to cause seizures in rare cases.

Secondly, the animations, while good in some areas, had a few minor issues where a layer would bleed into an area it didn't look like it belonged or an animation looked a bit choppy. This may have been intentional, I don't know.

Lastly, the audio (good for setting the atmosphere) was a bit jarring at times. For me it was a pain, and certain tones hit such a high pitch it hurt (I wore headphones) even when I lowered the volume.

Overall the video was interesting enough to garner my attention the whole time. I feel you should definitely continue to practice. Who knows, maybe we'll get to see more of your work. I hope so.

That was just mad! You should look into getting Konami sponsors...maybe YOU could fix the silent hill franchise! :P Everything aside that was a very intense trip through insanity. I would focus on trying to clean up the images just a bit if at all possible, but I think if you took the time to develop a real solid story using the same animation/art combo you could have something big! Great work!

Screw everyone else for bashing this. This was great in many different ways depending on how you look at it and interpret it, They just don't have the mental prowess to appreciate it.
