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 is a work of pure art and... truth...

One of the best social commentaries ever.

muy bueno, inspirador

I sign up just to give the comment...
I cannot choose the appropriate words to express it though, I am touched...

just like.. someone had taken off my own mask,
and I could see clearly my real face from the movie

You are becoming an excellent animator/writer. Your first few animations were a little quirky but still good; however, I like the type of content you've been creating for this competition. I appreciate the fact that you are not afraid to create expressive content as well, that sort of thing is a rarity on this site (its normally cock jokes and titties here), so I greatly appreciate your effort. I hope your other animations are equally as successful as this one. Good luck!
