This short animation is about a young man suffering from depression after witnessing his mother get killed by his own father.

When his father finds out that he was at the scene, he then abuses him , threatening to take his life too if he said a word to anyone.

As he grows older, the young man finally decides to end his misery to be in peace with the one person who ever loved him, his mom.

And which better day to do it, than on his mother's birthday.

As for the mask, it is also a representation of his silence over the years.

*On the side note; thank you guys for taking the time to view my animation and for your comments( gd and bad), it will be submitted for my Uni project, wish me luck! =)

I can't believe this!

I must give 5/5 and 10/10 straight away!!

Firstly, this is a sensitive opinionated topic about a mother and a abusive dad...But instead it wasn't at all sensitive....It was more disheartening instead to see the nice mother getting killed!!
Secondly, I love how the plot of this story flows....You showed a recount or flashback nice and sweet, no unnecessary jokes or whatsoever!! And then when the child grew up, he revenge for his mother during her birthday, i suppose?
Next, the music effects and the graphic effects were also worth high points from me, even though there wasn't any color, but the story itself decolurized it, i supposed it was, and i think it could be that way...

But what i am wondering is, why is the father reacting that way? Perhaps you can portray it in your SEQUEL(i will be waiting for it)?

dracolicious responds:

A SEQUEL is a pretty good idea which i am thinking of doing when i get the time. I've actually thought about it and might go about telling the story from different points of view (from the mom or the dad). Gona submit this for my Uni assignment and see how it goes first! Thanks for your comments! =)

Very eerie.

A sufficiently good way to portray a son's emotional suffering as a result of the traumatic scene he witnessed... You could definitely feel his pain; you depicted it very well. I liked the use of music and sound effects especially; added to the haunting atmosphere. Brilliant use of the Dexter theme music, by the way - it was instantly recognisable and tied in well because of how similar this theme is to the Dexter theme: the mother dying in a tragic manner as a result of the father's actions. And the story you told was intriguing, too, not to mention the masked main character warranted a bit of enigmatic fascination.
Thumbs up, it worked well.
