Awesome. I dreamt about this animation and had to rewatch it but I could not find it! Tried nearly every word in the search box on NG and Google. I actually had to browse all movies ranked by score and ended up on page 93 (!) before I finally found it.
It's been about seven years since I first watched this little gem. To this day, I am still in love with its ability to convey an entire story with its brevity.
Yes! I have finally found this video!
So sad.. but that's how many of us end up.. alone
if i only knew you
What i saw was that a man who committed crimes all his life finaslly had a realization that he wanted to do something else. When he saw the ring it made him realize he was all alone. at the end a hand grabs her shoulder which i think was the mans hand. I think he got a second chance at life because the ring was not there before.
Also great animation, music, setting and scene selection. Every reel had a purpose. Very good job.
