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!)

Nothing new story-wise. Your animation and artwork were splendid though.

well, tbh i didnt know what really happened, nor does the flash entertainment value allow me to want to go ahead and replay it. You had some nice shaded backgrounds and character designs, but I was not a huge fan of the animation technique. Not really my cup of tea but, the backgrounds showed promise in the very least and the art was very fitting for it. The dramatic strings set a good mood aswell. I just didnt get that much entertainment value from it is the thing.

Aw well I can see what you mean. I wanted the story to be a little open ended, but I can understand how it can be confusing XD But thanks too, I had the most fun coming up with the backgrounds oddly enough, so I appreciate that

so what exactly is the point of the story. the woman just leaves the man? what drove them apart in the first place? the woman gets a happy ending but the man is fucked? for what reason? i felt like the action should have said something, maybe a lesson on treating your wife better but all i saw happen was the timeline of the picture frame and then she just leaves him for some cat man she has tea with? im sure you had something in mind but more information is needed.

I enjoyed the art style, the story, and the music( even if it ended early) but the animation itself struck me as a little lazy, what with the amount of tween use. Tweens made an animation that could have been wonderful, into something boring and mechanical.
