A triumphant work! The mix of drawn and object animation was engaging, the music dreamy and ethereal, and the narrative compelling. A facinating and contemplative piece.

This is a piece of great work you have just made! It have a great mix of real life stop motion and animation arts in a fluid way, the music was soothing and a great fit at a same time. The story itself tells a simple story of an adventure and the hero is seen in a simple way as most stories of adventure heroes, yet being so exciting, inspiring and a blend and blast of art in it. It is simply a very amazing animation art that is worth watching every second of it.

A masterpiece.

I've loved Mr. Coo for years, and have long been impressed with the fluidity and clarity of the animation. It so eloquently delivered whimsey that was beyond language and could transverse culture. Mr. Coo has always been one of those rare gems I could share with anyone.

But this is a truly epic story, delivered in the vein of Joseph Campbell's hero.
What I pull from this presentation is the indication of an important and righteous goal. The lack of hesitation from our lovable hero suggests an acceptance of his destiny.
The rest of the symbolism comes clearly and exquisitely when I look at it in this light.
My favorite part was at the end when he took off his mask because he simply didn't need to be afraid anymore.

Thank you so much for this. What a beautiful gift you've made for us!

wow, thanks a lot man! About the interpretation, you got it right. The original text is called 'The hymn of the pearl', if you want to look into it. Cheers!
