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!

sad but touching

This flash tells a great story and it is amazing, original, and quite strange. This is an amazing flash, keep it up.

Sad but true...

This just goes to show what society has turned into... everyone just hides, thinking it makes them look better.

This is an incredible depiction of the psychological side of something as simple as going to school. I especially like the scene after-school where the teacher has, not one, but four or five masks taken off, each showing a deeper level of emotion before revealing a defeated man underneath it all. Everyone has to hide their emotions until they find someone they can open up to (as the end). Smooth animation, good story, intense meaning. This is deep, man, thanks for making this.
