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!

i LIKED this video !


I'm just glad it had a good ending.
Reminded me of a flash music video that had the same theme.
"Mask" (Can be found on ABS, if not on NG)


sad yet beautiful and has some major truth to it

... wow

... fantastic. That was the first word I had in mind after watching this movie. People truly hide behind their masks to show not their real feelings. And only after finding the right person they sometimes start taking off their masks and looking in the face of the other person to see what they really feel and sharing their feelings with the other person.
The movie is well done. Also the music fits good with the story and the animation.
I especially found the creepy looking and shocking true state of the people good. They crawled under my skin.

To sum it up: ...fantastic.
