Music video for THEODOR BASTARD



Rated 5 / 5 stars


There were a lot of hidden messages in that, some of which I got, some of which I may have missed.
The masks seem to repress individuality. The characters seem happy before the masks were locked onto their faces, and after they have a forlorn look.
The locks on the masks symbolize repression, and give the characters a miserable look. This could mean many things.
The frequent appearance of cards throughout the music video would represent chance, and luck. The character chooses the 'key' card from the puppet (which means something, but I can't fathom what), seeming to mean the key to unlocking your own free will is in your own hands, but it being chance who is chosen to lead revolution (it IS Russian, so I'm assuming ...) and who isn't?
The crow like character seems to be the embodiment of force, fear and oppression.

Overally, the art style, the music, the hidden meanings, all this creates something more than a flash. This is art. NG isn't good enough for this. Half the idiots on this site probably didn't realise the importance of the masks, nevermind all the other hidden meanings.

I'm sure someone other than me noticed something, and for those who didn't, watch it again, and try to improve upon what I have said.

Simply amazing


Rated 5 / 5 stars

One of my all time favorites

I've been watching this many, many times over the last 4-5 years. The mood and setting is beyond amazing, the song is incredibly moody (I've aquired the album already), and the animation and transitions are unequaled in their style. I have no idea why I never reviewed it, but here it is :) If I could give this piece an 11, I would. This is art, not flash. It deserves so much more recognition than it already has, and I hope it is included the day we pick our "classics of Newgronds" for praise. I have nothing but love for this movie. Thank you so much for inspiration over the years, Kol-Belov.

I really enjoyed this flash along with all of your others.

For this flash in particular i believe the main message is that every person has potential to be something, but only some set out to find that potential, and even fewer are granted that blessing.

but i might be wrong. =/
