This is similar to my "Heart of Stone" film but with more depth
I wanted to push myself with this one, doing more full animation.
Thanks for front paging me :)
Your name is Jonathan
Yes it is......
Well, this was very well-animated, and the music & sound effects were effective and felt appropriate. Solid production values all the way around, though the highly detailed severed arm in the beginning did slightly clash with what followed.
The narrative, on the other hand . . . well, speaking from the perspective of someone largely ambivalent to the source material you're drawing from, it really didn't make any sense. The savages run around eating people . . . yet the winged dudes don't seem all that interested in protecting the people, but rather round up the savages and tie em' to a tree . . . and then some guy takes their place for no clear reason, and the savages are released (presumably to go back to eating people . . . good job dude?) and then the guy gets revived, making you wonder how that was a sacrifice at all. Then the repentant savage turns into a human, but with no protection and all the other ones free, seems likely to be eaten in short order. Once again making me wonder what the POINT of the whole shebang was.
I understand wanting to use symbolism from something important to you, and I'm cool with that whatever religion or lack thereof you might prescribe to, but if you want to speak to an audience who's not already invested in the premise beforehand, you're gonna need to be a little less nonsensical than this.
hmm arm being too detailed, your right, thanks I'll make a note on keeping image continuity.
"the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." 1 Corinthians 1:18 (from the Bible)
The message of the cross is what I was trying to portray. If the message of the cross is to be viewed as foolishness I cannot hope to do much better. Especially when I hardly used any words and try to shorten it all in 4 minutes.
Thanks for your review :)
Kudos. Really nice.
Amazing and meaningful
Thanks, and to God be the glory, cause He did it for real
The reviewer below me said "Problem-Most people don't believe that humans were evil savages before two-thousand and fourteen years ago."
Funny thing is... what if the "evil savages" weren't the people of old, but rather, the people of today? Who out there hasn't been rude? Who hasn't been mean? Laughed at the hardships of others? Or hated unfairly?
People still hate. People still kill. People still steal. The same as in the past. The inside of man hasn't changed much.
Maybe the evil savages aren't as far away as one might think.
