Howdy folks.

This is an entry to Manchester University's Animation '13 - the short length is down to the one minute time limit.
This animation is a visual retelling of the poem 'The Man He Killed' by Tom Hardy, within this minute I've tried to create something cinematic and poignant, hope you enjoy!

EDIT: Frontpage! Thank you so much for all your support! I've reuploaded the animation with better sound levels, hopefully it'll improve the experience for some :)


It's good someone decided it was time to openly stop demonizing the Germans

There is a reason for everything.
To question the carefully packaged history&world-view aimed at the general populace is a duty of the intellectual.
The poster on the wall translation:
"your father-land is in danger
Sign up
Defense division"

later, SchutzStaffel will be abbreviated SS, "Defense Department"
British WWI propaganda posters come to mind:

"Your king&country need you! Uphold the honor and glory of the British empire!"
Once a German- always a German
For every German worker employed, means a British worker idle!
For every German article sold, means a British article unsold!"
"Beat back the Hun!"
touching, simple and well animated
but you need a subtitle option because it's hard to understand this dialect.

Nice short clip, and the concept's been told many times before, simple and obvious yet important to remember... just people don't want to think about it, either out of apathy or intellectual atrophy I suppose.

Good work.

I heard every word but I couldn't understand any of the sentences unfortunately (watched it multiple times). Maybe I'm just not used to whatever accent it was . But I'm sure It was something deep whatever he was talking about, it looks like a nice animation.

don't get it
