I believe that life is too short to think too much about things and from hear on I will try to live that way.

This video here really is mostly about what's said in it as opposed to other factors that usually might be worth addressing in a piece of animation, so while I can give the barebones analysis on art, music and actual animation with a universal, "good but minimalist", it's really the message that's worth talking about most.

With both the title and your author's comments you seem to address your point as "Think Less", but in reality that's not only very poor advice but also not really what the point your video made at all. Your actual content seemed to a very glib push towards talking to people instead of doing nothing, or in other words to be more spontaneous when dealing with human interaction. Perhaps a little better than your motto, but still kind of silly.

See, it's not society that teaches you to clam up and resist talking to anyone that you encounter, it's the basic human interactions that everyone undergoes when they're busy growing up. Fact is that while someone might be the most interesting person you've ever talked to, most of them are dullards not worth exchanging two words with. Even if they manage to be only mildly interesting it's unlikely that you'll pinpoint the exact area that they are educated or experienced enough to be interesting in on the first conversation, and even then being interesting is subjective, so while they might be interesting in the area of choice, you might find the entire thing dull. Of course, even if they are interesting, it's even more likely that you aren't(no offence, just basic probability there).

This is entirely why people flock to like minded groups, why they go to places where commonalities are more likely to exist, and why they often hang around people of the same age groups. It's because there's a higher chance they will meet someone worth talking to and syncing up with. By all means try just talking to random people that you encounter, just be ready to meet a lot of boring people and to get a lot of awkward uncomfortable looks while doing it.

Think less before acting.

Yeah that's a fucking great message dude. Just what we need to hear today.

Find a way to say yes. Closing doors is too easy.

I like the message but I feel as if too many people don't think enough. But I suppose your comment was more on the subject of over contemplation and taking action over matters that sitting idle waiting for something to happen. However, I feel as if your message (though I agree and has a good point) could be misconstrued to literally think less and just do, like the Nike commercial implies "Just do it." In a modern world of overly stimulated activities and an impatience for things that are "slow" or take time I feel that people need to slow down and contemplate things a little more.

But like I said, I loved the message you put out there. Industrialization has urbanized us to the point where we touch shoulders with each other on a daily basis. We're so close to each other on a physical plane but yet we're so far and isolated from each other that it almost seems that we've forgotten how to say hello to one another or wish each other a good day or even just oddly enough chat. And to be creatures of social interaction, that we would find it odd if someone were to strike up a conversation with us at a bus stop is just a sad commentary on how far we've drifted from our roots as people and in some bit of a larger sense lost some of our humanity, not only for others but to ourselves as well.

Overall your animation was good, had a bit of humorous charm, and the message was deep which I appreciated.

Liked it! Deducted half a star because the initial great animation style seemed to turn into something kind of generic later on (e.g. the Earth). Other than that great!

Seems like some people already overthinking it. :D

To me the "Do More, Think Less" doesn't mean lack of thinking but that there are times when it's better to act rather than think. Think about it! :)
