It was very touching.
And yes, they have to pay and rebuilt everything afterwards, theoreticly. But I think the main point about this artwork is that we have to free ourselfs, and be it that we make mistakes on our way. The creative potential in all of us is imense and if the world is not ready fo this to grow, than:
Than we just have to change our living circumstances and finally the world itself.
There are ways.
Yeah, the problem is all of their futures are going to be the same as the old guy sleeping on the bench begging for change. Someone had to slave over a farm to grow your food. Someone had to risk their lives for your daily freedoms. Someone had to slave in a factory for your clothing, your car, your guitar.. the skittles too. Nothing is free. It's give and take. As children we have gifts that our parents may give us. But, when we grow up, it's time to stop being a bum. It becomes time to help your community in whatever small way you can. Earn the space you take up, the air you breath, the food you eat.. In the end.. not even dreams are free.
THAT WAS AWESOME! Music, animation... I Love It.
The film was great, and I am continually impressed by your ability to create such knock-out animations; here you've shown the full scope of your ability, and, in contrast to your monster movies, just how varied your work can be.
It was universal, comedic, and appropriately light-hearted. The touch of sentimentality was enough - I wasn't led to overthink the humor that popped up throughout the film.
The art needs a little work. It's easy to say as a non-animator, but as you explore a wider range of programs and features I think you'll find ways to smooth out your workflow and make your style more distinctive. Look at the independent, bedroom animations that impress you, and figure out how their creators are manipulating moving images.
But this is Newgrounds, and though the art was simplistic, it worked. The "direction" was brilliant as always, and (while knowing that your drawing will improve vastly in the future) it created a mature, full-bodied world: a 5 Star Film.
I am absolutly stunned by your animation. Usually I don't give any intrest to a movie if the quality of the drawings are not good enough, but you sir managed to capture a lot of emotions with some great music running on the background. Many feelings where portrayed on every scene, and even the slow motion made it look like a profesional video clip.
I have to watch this again...
