A Blue Guy spends his life secluded from society, but a wake-up call pushes him into a lengthy stroll to the big city. Ignoring and rejecting everything around him, up until a certain point he is faced with a choice whether to act or not.

The visuals and animated soundwaves are heavily inspired by a scene from Ratatouille, in which I tried to animate the music itself, since Techno lends itself very well to digital graphics. I also tried to apply a full spectrum of color in its correct order as he travels on his long walk, as well as different colors that fit with the living beings seen throughout the video. Specifically for the people, I made eye-colors reflect their current emotions. The Blue Guy's eyes remain either blank, or just closed for most of the film until his own emotions are forcibly brought out by the choice to act or not at a critical moment.

I didn't have a long time to work on the project due to school, but it turned out as a great experiment and I'm content with the final product's look. Hope you'll enjoy both it and the song! You gotta act.

I song strikes me as one that I would go and make a flash about some hero trying to save something or fight some idk, "act right now". Not sure. But yeah krib, I dig the new name and the little intro thing too. good stuff.

only someone who understands an artiest is an artiest, then again its just how applying it looks and if it entertains you, ahhhhhhhh screw it, artiest should just all be out to say screw the world and be against the man!

loved it

I thought this was an excellent flash. I really loved your use of colours and those circles. The music was also very good and i understood the symbolism. Which convieniantly brings me to egoraptor's comment. I dont think, due to all of ego's flashs that ive seen, that ego should be dissing anyones work.

The video completely matches the music, by that meaning everything is in sync with each other. The concept of him having to act, along with the conclusion being a perfect example of when to act, was also well done. You're a great animator, keep it up.
