Made this in only 2 months for a competition and it is, in my opinion, very bad. I didn't have the time/skill for the art and the narrative/dialogue was really rushed. What I had in my head was not what came out. Not to mention that this was my first real fiction, conscious direction, 4x as long as any other piece I've animated (done in half the time), management of voice actors, etc.

I'm glad I fell on my face though; it teaches you a whole lot more.

Critique everything but sound. Also take into account my time limitations.

The theme is that the desire for freedom is not intellectual, but instinctual; the relativity of civility; and that freedom cannot be forced upon individuals. Freedom conquers all, but if you do not understand human psychology, it will destroy all too.

Very good

I'm not sure why some reviewers are criticizing the style of this work. I liked it - how it was strictly monotone, how the scenes and rooms faded into darkness. It seemed to fit. As far as the animation itself, the only time I really disliked it was in the very first scene (the fan blades rotating, which was done rather poorly). Other than that, the frame-by-frame was pretty good. Quite enjoyable.
