Pete says: Hyaaagh hagh. Now I know why all those people put "FRONTPAGE?! AWESOME!! I LOVE YOU GUYS!" when they make it here. This is one hell of a feeling. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, SgtPooPoo! :D

Well, this was Peter's first proper animation for university and David's first solid work of sound design, and it was a fully collaborative effort. Pete didn't think this would have worked with crappy sound - and animating it silently was torture, so he relished watching whole bits he'd done at a time WITH SOUND, thanks to Dave! XD

Those of you who have seen Proffate's other animations will notice that the aliens in this work look suspiciously like the ones from the Immigrant filmclip. This was intentional. It's a nod... nay, a requiem to the alien couple from the filmclip that he was promised would be put on MTV. Unfortunately, JC decided to fold. As in, totally give up. Assface.
Anyway, this will be hopefully entered into a few competitions sometime soon...

Originally, this film was mixed in Dolby 5.1 surround sound. For this version, it's toned down, but we still tried to keep the quality as high as possible.

Just remembered this existed and came back to rewatch it. It's a very lovely film, a deep topic handled in an odd but very heartwarming way.

Great job. I think the white one was best out of all of them.


so its basicly about a couple who cant have kids so they get ivf and it goes wrong...the white one looked awesome!


It really goes to show you that a true mother's love transends all boundaries and is unconditional. It was a stunning response to abortion and the lasting effects it leaves behind whether it was meant to be or not. I wholly enjoyed it and commend the artist.


I feel quite sorry for the robot, must be a stressful and heartbreaking job. It appears that 'he' (I consider it make, for thats how it appears) has emotions, so ya...
The mother, I feel even more sorry for, as she was a true parent, unlike the supposed 'father'.
As for the flash itself, it was great, there is no anatomy to criticize due to the nature of the video, and the frame rate stays silky smooth, even on an older computer that I use on an occasion. Overall, in my less than professional opinion, I found this flash to be great. Deep, and certainly worthy to be viewed by anyone who likes more mature content, and being forced to leave their comfort zone and think about the horror of this supposedly 'alien' event. Its far closer to home than many may think.
