The entirety of this was made over the course of the last seven days. I'm actually really surprised at how efficient I was here, since I managed to get around 25 seconds done each day.

Even though the actual animation is not pristine or anything and the frame-by-frame is sort of choppy and shaky, I'm proud of how this turned out, mainly due to the atmosphere of it and the story. I think this time it actually has some meaning behind it. Also, this time I actually have some REAL INSTRUMENTS in the music. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? OMG. Except I mixed them in with synthesized versions of themselves so it's occasionally hard to tell. Oh well.

Edit: Wow, I'm genuinely amazed by the quality of these reviews! There's been a lot of thought put into each and every one of them. Thanks so much, everyone!


This was the the first one of your videos i had ever seen. I loved it I was still new to the internet at the time so i couldn't find any more of your videos but now since i know how to see all your videos i can watch them all. Your skills have massively improved and you were good to begin with. So basically I have know idea why any of your videos are less than even a 4.5 because they are all just amazing.

It's cool how you decided to show how people masquerade through life, hiding their real selves. I really like it.

omg i love all of your movies but this is the best one i think

This is possibly one of the greatest short animations I have ever seen.

This was incredible, i love it how you showed both how much emotion people hide, and their reactions to people straying away from the social norm, so 10/10!!! (if it was an out of ten rating.... which it isn't... and even if it was it would still proportionally be the same so i don't know why i mentioned it)
