The Pig's Head

A cutout style animation, based on story I wrote

Edit: First off, I really want to thank people who left comments and reviews. I can't respond to each individually, but I did read them all and I got a lot of helpful feedback and interesting interpretations on this story.

I think this animation is a little more open ended than the original story, which in a way I like because so far people have different views on what the point of this story is

In the original story, there is somewhat more importance on the pig's head because of its connotations and it is more clear cut. First of all, most people are pretty disgusted by eating a pig's head and it is a disgusting sight to have to face. Second of all, many poor families would eat a pig's head because they were trying to be economical by using every part of the pig... There is also more of a family dynamic between the husband and wife and the servants, and how they takes sides in the original story. I never actually state what causes their relationship to go wrong, but maybe viewers will see for themselves what they want to see

It is interesting to see how viewers pin blame on the husband, while maybe others might see it as the fault of the wife or maybe both the husband and wife are awful people... Or just people who have fallen astray

But I am writing another story I plan to animate, and I am definitely looking back on these comments to guide me because they were pretty great.

(P.s. if you are a sound artist and would maybe be interested in my next project which is a little similar to this, maybe pm me!)


...... holy..... fuck.... that was the weirdest thing I've seen on NewGrounds in my entire life... well you got me satisfied, so for that, 5/5 :D

The whole thing with the pig's head is creapy and reminds me a bit of Lord of the Flies. I do find it enteraining and a very nice story, despite the chills I get from it.

Wow. Really good!
How did you keep the filesize so low? You didn't use a preloader at all!

The thing that seeps deep into my mind is how creepy the movie is. I keep getting chills. It is freaking scary dude!!! Especially because the movie simply ends with its music as if there was no big deal. THIS, is true creepers! Cant say i like watching this genre of movies. But definitely full vote for you! (chills again remembering the pig's head)
