this is my final project for art foundation

and the submission that i submitted an animatic for

its changed abit but i hope you enjoy and i hope that you understand it :)

OKAY: i'm gonna clear two things up i am a leather wearing meat eating person and the message of the video isnt to not harm animals

the message is that we dont usually think of where our stuff comes from. we dont see bacon and think of pigs, we dont see clothes and think of where the fibres come from. even if we know where everything comes from we dont have that in our minds. and the toaster bit is because my friend found a mouse in his toaster once, so i always think of mice when i use mine...(his house id disgusting srsly)

I don't remember if it was you or not, but I've seen the mouse to toaster loop animation before. It was submitted to the portal and I got in my e-mail lineup. Anyway, it went well with the rest of the flash. I don't like lines that constantly move in animation, but every time I see them I have to watch... It's hypnotic! Music mighta contributed to that feeling as well.

Why is the mouse a toaster machine?

Good animation, excellent art and animation, and the music fit perfectly.
It almost made me feel bad for eating meat for a while back there.

Extremely good art

But I think you kind of messed up the message a bit, by adding that clarification in your author's comment... You see, what's the point of knowing that a cow or pig died to get you food and clothes if you're not going to do anything about it? Is the message you intended to be thankful to the animals the things you get are from? I'm not a vegetarian either, but I'd like to be, it's just because mother doesn't let me be because she says it doesn't give the whole nutritional income necesary for humans, to be vegetarian.
So to sum up, I think you made the message, the one you intended, too shallow and not important, and it didn't go well with the art that you made, which evoqued a more profound message, and more meaningful I think. And still, if most people see in what you did the other message, the one you didn't intend, must be because it gives THAT message away... maybe you should just let your art speak for you, let people see or interpret whatever they will, and then reevaluate your message. I don't want to sound pretentious, it's just the way I see it.
Still, extremely good drawing, animating and music.

I actually liked it. But didn't get that part, where mouse became a toaster. Tried to figure it out, but couldn't...

i knew the meaning by just watching it! :D

but, the chicken bit, u don't kill a chicken to get eggs lol, and its ok to get them as long as its not fertilized, not like the eggs thats fertilized that people eat, in my country its called "balot" the chicks are still inside them, its really tasty! we drink the soup inside and after we eat the yolk we eat the chick! :D
