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 loved it. I am honestly impressed by the story here. People spend their lives making their own mask, and collectively, similar masks bully different ones to defend the integrity of their mask.

The animation was a little choppy here and there, but it didn't need that great of animation to be amazing. I hope to see you come out with more work like this.

Not only a great movie, this also "said" some things i needed to hear. Thank you, from the most sincere depths of my true heart, not from my mask.
