Thanks for the front page guys!
My final project for my freshman animation class at UArts for the fall 2009 semester. Basically what we have to do is take an animator or animation studio's style and make a 30 second long animation (I'm going beyond that because I'm an asshole.) So I chose Don Hertzfeldt and added a bit of my own style to it and there you go.
NOTE: I originally had more planned out for the ending to get a better understanding of what was happening throughout the whole movie, but due to time constraints I had to throw it out the window. Maybe one day I'll make another one and it will help explain this.

30 FPS, shot mostly on 1's. We only had about 3 weeks to get these finished.

And it appears that it's not letting me post the updated version of this movie with the replay button fixed. Sorry everyone. If you do want to replay it, you can just right click on the movie and press play.

wow ZMC

I was pretty blown away by it, you really paced the animation with the music which really made it seem suspenseful. Great movie sir.


you did a good job imitating don. The second I saw the little guy I though "hey that looks like Rejected". Those were good times. Anyway, very good job.

Rather disturbing

The animation is nice, the background music fits perfectly.. All in all it's a nice composition. But i dont understand, is it supposed to be so deviant, yet simple, or does it have some deeper meaning than some aliens gathering human organs for the black market or so..?

Ehh it's not the greatest thing in the world

I got what you were going for but it just wasnt convaid well enough

I mean it was a good consept and the music was good but ulltimatly I'd scrap it and start again from scratch

ok soo...

alright animation and music was on point good flash if u care nuthing about plot and meaning, but dude seriously wat the hell is this about and wat does it mean?? Unless u really want me to walk away frm this thinking never to trust robot floating eyses cuz they harvest kidneys, lead you to pointless places and kill you. I could make inferences about realizing the truth about pre existing fears but id be groping in the dark. Truth is i have no idea wat i jus watched. Appreciate it if ud answer.

ZenMicroClock responds:

As I mentioned in the description, the intended plot couldn't get worked into this version of the movie. And since I'll most likely be making a follow up to this, I can't tell you the full plot. But hopefully I'll have the next one done soon and that will give you a better idea of what is going on.
