This past month has been incredibly stressful. I have had a rather large attack on my website, which is now down until further notice, and I worked at a job all day on weekdays. The result is that this video is possibly more rushed to completion than any other one I've made. The animation quality is below my personal standards and I feel like I should have edited the music some more, but I will unfortunately be out of town for a little while now, and to be honest I just want to have a break. I'd like to say that I'll come back and fix things up later, but in reality I know I won't. I don't know how this round of NATA will turn out, but I wish everyone the best of luck.

As far as the plot goes, I always sort of wanted to make something where the protagonist finds himself in what is basically the position of a god, and then breaks under the pressure. I also decided to mix in another idea I had which involved having the world contained inside itself, so that there would be an infinite string of identical worlds inside each other where a change in one affects all of the others because they are the same world. IT is from that concept that I tried to tie in this round's theme, "the butterfly effect", and also where I got the title "macrocosm" from. I still feel that there's a lot more I could have done with the concept, especially given the rushed quality of this entry, so maybe I'll revisit the ideas later or something.

I'd just like to give thanks to my friend Laura who helped play some of the music to save me some time, and once again, I need to thank Bing for his awesome music, which you can download at highfivespaceship.bandcam p.com.

This video has some pretty deep themes in its story and the animation itself is amazing. Even if it was rushed and not up to your standards, it made for a incredible concept put onto video. Honestly, if I was in that guy's position of being able to control the world like that, I would most likely break under stress like he did. Fantastic job dude and kudos to you!

I've been forever searching for the kind of episode that makes you think of what would happen to you and all life if one. tiny. thing. was changed in the earth or time itself. Now I've found it. That man had the power of being able to change landscapes, and he even had the whole world at his finger tips. But he realized what he had done and the pain he caused, so he threw that power away. Thats exactly what almost any sane person would do. Some people would be overcome by thoughts of what he/she could have and how he/she could receive more if he/she threatened people that he/she would end the world. But then that puts themselves in danger, too. Most people today would do so, becuase the insane and murderous and greedy people are piling up on planet earth. When the episone was finished , I was blown off my feet. Thats why I'm giving this a perfect 5.

Wow...This movie blew my mind.

After months of forgetting to update Flash, I finally saw your wonderful production.
Tbh, my brain couldn't get the full picture of what was going on, til I read the description.

The music sounded very gleeful, yet sounded like it had an intellectual backdrop to it
(if that makes sense).
Sir, if this really isn't your best work, then I thirst to see what else you can make. :)
You have great animating skills, & this movie I watched had an amazing/epic plot to it.

Overall: 9/10
Score: 5/5
