Nothing Head is born, begins his pursuit of futility and learns his first lesson.

Well, I wasn't planning on sleeping anytime this week anyway... nightmare fuel aside, great animation, superb atmosphere, and I'm honestly looking forward to more Nothing Head.

I think I get it:
Don't let anyone get into your head and distract you with their problems or desires, keep your eyes on your goal and don't give up.

Or you may end up digging your own grave. Thanks for the review ;)

There something so...beautifully eerie about the video.
The atmosphere is just so dark and puzzling, very few submissions can successfully achieve this but you do it well :)
There are so many questions on my mind also, maybe Nothing Head is a metaphor for something? Maybe I'm over-analyzing but either way, I love it :)

Maybe he is! What do you think? I'm glad you like it anyway, thanks for the review!

Great atmosphere! The music, scenery and character design immediately drew me into the bizzarre world you have created. The use of camera angles were excellent and i particularly liked the over the shoulder focus change scene (and echoing it at the end was a nice touch). The character design is very unique and i love the sounds he makes as he moves, particulary the frenzied sqeeks and creeks as he frantically dug the hole. The plot was interesting and suitable for an opening episode as it left a lot unexplained yet gave you a lot to think about it. The pull of the distant building on the cinematography and the audiences focus really added a central element to the animation that prevented it from ever seeming entirely arbitrary.
I'm not sure if this was intentional but the lightbulb really reminds me of an abdomen and the whole character makes me think of insects. The blend of styles was excellent and your animation was good too. Looking forward to future episodes!
