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.

A really nice aesthetic and interesting animation that generally freaked me out. This guy understood that the way you make something scary is you make something that is beyond reality I got a vibe that this was influenced by courage the cowardly dog a bit in that sense.

Coming next year from Pixar...

Alright, so, the godawful CG actually really supplemented the horror and fucked up aspect of it. Any type of genuine polish would have lessened that effect.

Some of the crudeness seemed forced (Sees corpse. Jacks off to corpse.), but not everything needs to have a meaning in order to be good.

Also, the protagonist(?) should stop standing in front of powerful fans. They'll mess up his hair.

In the end, this was an experiment. Sometimes they fail, sometimes they succeed. It doesn't matter which, though, because either way this was definitely something memorable.

Plus the cinematography and use of basic colors was pretty damn good in my opinion.

Great work! Really disturbing, yet catchy. Wont rate 5 stars because you can improve the animation to make it more smooth and fluid. Congratz!
