I made this serious short to address society's growing lack of responsibility. We blame computer games, movies, or teleivision for anything that goes wrong. This film addresses the latter. All seen through the eyes of a television, who eventually realises that people are just plain stupid anyway.

90% of the film was drawn by hand and scanned in.

Hope you enjoy it.

My sentiments exactly

Fucking television. There's no getting away from it's pretty shining lights that slowly dissolve our ambition, eat away at our creativity and rape our minds so honestly.

Creativity is a more engaging, and difficult route but holds a great sense of acheivement.

Kudos Andrew, I'll be round for a cup of tea soon. ISso cold here!!!

WOW OMG THE BEST FLASH MOVIE I'VE SEEN IN MY LIFE

I wan't more of this. This is the best movie you've made so far

Sorry

I've seen one to many Salad Fingers wanna-be movies. You basically rip off the Scribbler. I have to give you a 1 for your unoriginality. 9 for graphics because you mimic-ed the style very well. But 0 for style because it isn't your style.

The-Negator responds:

I hear David Firth is on the lookout for groupies. I suggest you offer your services.

wow that was a great message man

wow that is so true people are the real problem.

God save this hopless race.

Nice example of defamiliarization

I guess it would make for a really interesting story to experience one day in the life of an average TV. On that tip, you could even have gone more into depth about the television set's own preferences and how its owner continuously keeps disregarding them by forcing it to show what it itself considers to be truly inappropriate material etc.

But you put the message across forcefully, and I think I would go so far as to suggest making this a required movie in media education classes. If this doesn't make people contemplate their own media habits, probably nothing else will. Good idea, keep it up.
