This is a project I made for a contest (results of that below). There's no battles or dialogue and the story is for you to interpret. If you don't like that sort of movie, this entry probably won't change your mind. But if you can tolerate a lack of violence and swearing, please take a look. I put about 2 months work into this, I hope you enjoy it. Medium viewing quality recommended.

Info on my next project - Dual Arms Verbatim Pt 1 is available on my user page.

If you review, I always appreciate constructive criticism. I'd especially like some opinions on the music (which I made with garage band). Thanks.

Edit: Woot! Daily 3rd! Thx NG, you guys r awesome!

Edit 2: Contest results: There were several categories (ie. not film/animation) and aroung 70,000 contestants. This movie was awarded an award of merit in the film/ animation category - one of 3 given out (and 1 grand prize). In short, I didn't win outright, but I got somewhere around 2nd, 3rd, or 4th place, out of several thousand entrants. You guys are the ones who saw it first though, so thanks for your support!

I enjoyed watching that

Although it moved a little slowly at times, I was glad that I got the chance to see it. It is indeed very dreamlike; you were very successful in capturing that feeling. I also loved the colours that you used. The weakest part of it was probably the character drawings; they didn't seem quite right most of the time. So I do feel that it's a little underdone and thus give you 7/10, but it's a "good" 7/10, if that makes sense.

And yes, all art is just stealing the best bits from life and other art. :)

Very very good indeed

Like watching a visualisation of someone attaining the knowledge and conversation of their holy guardian angel. The design of the first door reminded me of artwork from Crowley's Thoth deck.

You are a talented artist and I like your work.


In the middle of your flash I thought: "Hmpgh... it's boring..." but I watched it till the end and saw a guy (probably you? :]) waking up and then the sense of this movie and I think that your plot is quite nice. Visual presentation throughout the dream associate to me with Fountain The Movie (great movie btw...) but of course it wasn't so stunning and beautiful as in that film. However your production is quite unique and even if not 100% succesfully, it manages to make me (and probably other watchers) think and this is very good. As some people noted you should work on animation quality and graphics.


That was truly stunning. That was really deep. Nice job on the creativity. Now, just practice the hardest part, the animation. lol. otherwise really good job man. i look forward to more.

i dont get it

what is it supposed to mean or imply
