Even in his sleep, Joe can't escape the fear of his family, his friends,or himself.

This film is the culmination of my love for action and stick figure animation. Please enjoy this action-packed film!

UPDATE: Thanks so much to Newgrounds for posting this to the frontpage, and thanks for the Review Crew Pick award! The feedback from this community is very encouraging. I hope to see this film covered in the "This week on Newgrounds" video. :)

If you hadn't shown him going to bed in the early stages, this could've been his life. The pieces fit together. Symbolic. Metaphoric. The Worker Joe, Warrior Joe, a strange take on the fears that follow the everyday Joe; you'd keep wondering... is this a dream? Is it an alternate world? What IS this? The intro explains it as it is, but I wonder the clarity's for better or worse. Not only at the end, but even at the beginning can you say "Oh, it's just a dream", as if that explains away the drama.

But intro or no intro: this was amazing! Such a showcase of skill, and suits, and secretaries, and yet in the end commitment, and the bane of kids are a bigger fear than the game of bids, and the big bad boss that sits in his office. Love the style. The overall vibe. Matrix-like suits. The secretaries in particular, and even without the intrigue the fights feel 'deeper' than fights usually do. Both nicely choreographed and scripted! I watched this a few times after each other, actually. Really great.
