EDIT 2*I would like to say to all who have appreciated this work: Thank you so much! The audience of this piece is unbelievably suprising. Hmm. Oh ya I would also ask if some of you guys could suggest this to the noir section or mabey serious shorts. mabey together we can get it in, i dunno. thanks alot! :)

EDIT 1*Front page! I love newgrounds! Thank you so much for your support! Also thanks to all who tried desperatly to discover the meaning behind this animation! It makes me feel good! :)*

I planned this one out pretty graphicly in my mind. I had planned the elevator scene before I even started working on scene one. So after about 7 months of off and on work, its done. For this guy, I focused on high contrast and extreme saturation as well as no saturation at all. I also focused on the theme, which may be hard-core invisible to you guys, but I would love to see some reviews which try to guess the moral of the story, so to speak. Enjoy and thanks for watching!



I just got higher rate for the graphics :D

Well hmm

Graphically this was well done, though the pixelation in some scenes was a bit distracting. As for the story I didn't catch on until about 2/3 of the way through it, just what was going on, what I was seeing, but overall it was interesting. I don't know how to interpret the ending, or the overall story, but it was interesting nonetheless. However the sound killed it for me; a lot of the effects, especially towards the end, were loud and jarring, and really brought me out of the story and mostly just hurt my ears.


I know there's a message in there somewhere but I'm stumped.

NEWayz, good work! I love the sound effects together with a visually intriguing style
that held my attention like a vicegrip.

I can't put my finger on why...

But something about this movie made me think of the Halocaust and religious persicution. The imagery of all those oppressive crosses and people who were being caged then sent away to seemingly no where. Also kinda made me think, since a lot of the focus was on the old man, there's also something about not turning your back on your beliefs. Like sometimes to move up in the world you might be stepping on other people.

Very cool!

Nice, really nice!
I was very focused in the movie, I dunno why. The sounds attract me.. I think:P

I think the old man is God, or anyway a sort of man who decides if people go UP(heaven) or DOWN(Hell).

Anyway, very interresting!
