Thank you for making this, very good

thought provoking

very well done. i like the song you chose. the thing i like most about the film is that you can't stop thinking about it when it's finished, it really gets you thinking about the world we live in and what our purpose is.

Please Correct me if I am Wrong

This is a beautiful and emotional but it seems to me that you are upset with the general state of affairs in our world today, such as industrialism (factory), war and famine (starving black child with gun), and materialism. While war and famine are bad, the industrialism that leads to all of this is necessary for to keep the world afloat. The people of Africa and other war-torn contries have done this to themselves. We can help them along the path to civilization, but they will have to make the decision to see how war between tribes is. Just as Europe and America have.
There is a point where a species must decide to grow or risk stagnation and decay. Grow or die. I think we should grow. To grow we need industrialization. You are a fantastic artist, this is just my perspective into your work.

I don't really know the answers to the questions you ask, all I think is that the balance in today's world is disturbed. The balance between us humans as social creatures living together on this planet and the motives of some very powerful institutions that only care about generating wealth. This was made painfully clear when the stock market collapsed 3 years ago and we suddenly all wondered what the fuck we are doing today and how this could happen. The animation is just a way of portraying things from my perspective. It may not make sense to some people, or only partly to others, but I hope it at least provokes a sense of curiosity about learning of these topics in the viewers.


Glad to see compassion and love in this cold cruel world.

All we are is dust in the wind

This is one of the most emotional submissions I have ever seen and it is not hard to understand why. This is a great music video as it goes into transition after transition. You are known for your deep and meaningful stuff and this shows it off perfectly. I think my favorite scene would be when we see the face form in the clouds next to the guy flying a seagull. The symbolism is awesome as you have no clue what is going to happen next. It is a great way to escape the real world but enter a world where you do nothing but wonder things.

Thanks. That's a really great way to put it
