A short film made with 3DS MAX, Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere. Just enjoy it !

I wanted to work on men alienated by society as well as religion :)

So, I created a society based on a simple structure : A people of equal individuals ruled by a superior power.

The essence of this alienation is the fluid which serves as a unique resource.
This divinity is meant to appear as a combination of religion and royalty.
The people is composed of blissful characters, moving in a shimmering forest.
However, this setting is an illusion: their divinity injected a fluid which makes them all blissful: that's why they see the world in colour...
Blissful people are in an illusion they make themselves, and they trust in it.

This is one special animation. It is truly thought invoking. It also makes me pour out sympathy and sorrow over those featured in the video. If only one could not be so easily bent and fooled...

Slipped my view of attention until recently, but I'm glad I saw this. Reminds me of old clay stop motion stuff like the classic Gumby stuff. This is really artistic and a great concept, great job.

Incredible...something like Ray Bradbury!

i agree that newgrounds needs more videos like this but i dont think too much crap gets on the front page but thats just me anyway great video loved the twist kinda hoped that theyd stay out of the illusion just for the reaction to being in a hellhole from then on thatd be interesting to watch make that a series just imagine that for a minute BOOM review over

Newgrounds needs more of this.
unfortunately a lot of crap gets frontpaged or receives undeserved daily features,
and i am sorry you have to share an award with these .
it is full of good animation
and a nice dark twist (although predictable, but thats not your fault. after all today everything has already been done once well, and badly and this is definitely one of the good ones.)
also i like the fact you did not go for the ..and then he saves everyone!
but for the darker more intriguing plot ending.
A: 9,5/10
V: 10/10
= 5/5
