Your animation is pretty decent, and I actually did think it was David Firth's work whilst watching it. But, also like David Firth - you need help mate.


Excellent work, I quite loved it! Are you making another?

If this is inspired by David Firth as you say, then more power to you, inspire away. I also hope that you become the inspiration for someone else.

... and ... It didn't seem all that random to me, I could follow the story line. Surprise ending too. I liked that.



I think your trying to hard to be random and its not comming natural. I see a lot of david firths animation in what you are doing. (many things can be compared to one of his dream animations, such as the mouths and the cassettes, not to mention the style similarities) This was good, but i can see your roots.

actually i put a real effort in trying not to be random
i wrote a storyboard and everything
but it just turned out that certain thigns didn't
work and i had t make cuts
so it is somewhat of a swisscheese story

saying I am "trying hard" is insulting
but i guess that is the point
David Firth is a large inspiration to me yes
but i invented all my own characters
and everything is out of my own head
i wanna say fuck you
but I won't

Little random

Nice flash um i dont realy understand why you made this but its random (slightly) and it has good graphics and i think you should make some more like it (nice headlis parents) and what is with the music what is it called

Captain-Sparkles responds:

the music was crayon by caribou
it says on the description


Style was ok, kinda creepy...
Maybe i just cant start anything with this kind of art?

Captain-Sparkles responds:

you can't start anythin with this kind of art?
