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!)

This story tells us how a woman leaves her husband and shows us her love for furries.

Let me just start out by saying, WOW!
This is a powerful piece with a tragic tale of love lost which leaves the viewer with a feeling of forlorn love now lost.
I think you did an excellent job of conveying the emotional aspect through the music / animation with a minimalist touch.
Keep up the great work and I look forward to watching your future submissions!

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I absolutely LOVED the style of the animation you used and it was interesting to watch. Music was great and it indeed did seem very Tim Burton esque. ^_^


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Finally a flash with a little more class than the usual "TOROLOROLRO, PENIS JOKE" scheme. I love the fact that there are some messages to be taken from this. Easily deserves every last bit of attention it has and then some.
