rarely do you find shorts of this quality anywhere let alone on newgrounds. 5 star, completely moving and metaphorically beautiful. a very gilded interperetation of a post modern society that, unfortunately, seems entirely plausible (in a sense) between a conflict of the "perfect" human being and the "real" world that the proletariat struggles within, shadowed by the looming tall paragons of the bourgeois. the fact that he finds comfort and beauty in his world, the real world, was touching to say the least. the whole time i watched the film i thought of shakespears famous line "all that glitters is not gold". i wish i could say more about how much i loved this short film, i would definately enter it in film festivals and see where it takes you. i would be very happy to see more from you guys ^_^
oh and maybe have a happy ending next time :) not that i didnt like the ending its just that, much like the message of the film, we should try to break the cycle of depressing media and create more uplifting stories
hats off mate. blew my mind!!
so the winners of the great lottery are used as youth batteries or something....
Well, this just made me just...wow. I mean the animation was good, the characters were pretty awesome, and the music and sound were just perfect.
That earns a 5 star rating!
Simply amazing reminds me of college days of watching indie films from around the world. The true blue indie films are finally maturing on newgrounds. imagine that few years ago it was simple flash films, then more advanced and now these.. simply amazing. Great work team
Wow! This one made me speechless. Extremely well done animation here. The story is good, the theme, and the world... amazing. It's pretty sad on how it seems they loose their humanity when they win though.
