Did this as a uni project which wanted us to make a self poirtrait in film. i guess you just kinda sit back and enjoy this one nothing fancy, going for a relaxing vibe. music by the awesome flashbulb.

UPDATE : I want to state that i grew up in a rural orchard in a third world country, there were no such practices as giving puppies to the petshops. life was different and my grandfather was a great man. i dont mind if you guys express your anger towards the act but please refrain from berating and calling my grandfather names. it was an act that greatly affected me but i understand given how my life and culture were different back then you just have to accept certain things.



Very nice art.Loved it.The puppies thing was kind of disturbing,but oh well.Great flash.

it was moving.

the animation was pretty well done. the music was pretty sad and the plot also.. it kind of made me tear actually. it was moving in a way

Nicely executed, although overused, concept.

Now, when I say that, I'm talking about the art. Lots of animations involve two colors, black and white, and it's been in too many popular animations to be put away as a flash cliche. That being said, the artwork in itself has a feel-good vibe to it, especially with Flashbulb in the mix, save for the sad moments. Emotions are much more easier to be effective when they are coupled with real life. Memories of puppies being buried alive. What a horrible experience.

Now, I'd try not to get personal about this review, but you present to me an animation that is centered around your personal life. You display an honest preview of who you are with faults and accomplishes, relationships and partings. There isn't much to this animation besides emotion and art, and I think that, in its purest form, that's what animation is all about. I like that.

anyone else....
