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 animation truely explains how society can really make you feel.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

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)

I really love watching flash videos that portray messages like this without actually saying what the underlying moral is, just as the real world does. Also, on a seperate note, i feel like there was some sort of connection to the length that it took you to make this flash and the harsh aspects of reality.
From the perspective of the Christian believer, it's ironic to point out the creation of the world in seven days just as you had with this video, and that everyone is supposedly created in equal imagery of God.
And both cases, there are times in the small fraction of the protagonist's life that emphasize the "blend in with them, or be shunned by them." idea.
In any case, great flash, and i hope you make more... coolio

Huh, I never even considered the amount of time it took to make, but those are some interesting connections, even though they are purely coincidence. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
