This is a retelling of a story entitled The Double: A Petersburg Poem by Fyodor Dostoevsky. The assignment we had for class was to make it under a minute in length and still get the general story across. So this may be confusing to a lot of you, but basically the main character in the actual story is a schizophrenic and doesn't realize it until the end. He ends up seeing multiple clones of him everywhere he goes mainly due to his schizophrenia.

It is also recommended that you watch this on medium quality unless you think your computer can handle high quality.

Cool animation which hit's home very powerfully at the end.
I don't think there is anything else that I can say. A retelling of a poem, that could only be told through balls with clocks for faces.

that was......

AWSOME. very nice, very enjoyable,short but sweet.

Yeah I wish I could have made it longer, but I was already pushing it with the time limit that is the final version. All of our projects were only supposed to be thirty seconds, but I tend to never follow the rules.


I haven't read The Double by Dostojevsky, but I can sort of imagine the whole mood in the book. I think you did an awesome job!

ZenMicroClock responds:

Well thanks a lot for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed!

This is easily the......

.........BEST "Clock" flick i've ever seen.

Great Job!

ZenMicroClock responds:

ZenMicroClock responds:
