This is an abstract movie dealing with the concept of rejection.
Most of the images used are a metaphor for a real life entity.

While watching it, I didn't get any of the metaphors at all. Nothing against you, though, I'm just not the poetry type! ^^;

But after reading your explanation, I was like, "Aha." Very deep, and very moving. And very clever, too!

officialRiRi responds:

lol. yeah, I should've known this would make little sense without the poems to actually explain it. From an abstract poem to an even more abstract animation, guess I should say sorry! O.o


Freakin weird but awesome

officialRiRi responds:

hahaha, thanks a lot. ^.^ I'm always trying to shape my messages so they can appeal to everyone, O.o but then end up with just a very cryptic message and a wtf product...

i see

a bit sad but i saw what were doing and wow deep stuff and well animated.

I see

A bit sad but I saw what you were doing


So he's there, but no one wants him there? Elaborate for me when you get this. Well animated. Deep stuff. Existentialistic in a way.

officialRiRi responds:

This comes from a series of poems I wrote, so technically, this is just the beginning. But, basically, it's a metaphor for someone coming into your life,
and making you sad at first, whatever the reason may be. The whole "Where
are all the citizens?" just say that the owner of the city never let anyone inside.
Hahaha, it's quite complicated. If you know the core concept of the movie, you
can interpret it as you want. :P
