Absolutely amazing! Loved every single bit of it. Astonishing animation, great music and picked a nice voice for it =]

Thank you very much! Sad, that so few people saw it

wow, that was GREAT! a grand epoch of the origins of time, and of it's rebirth as the ''new-time'' itself! giving birth to something that already existed, but being renewed, restored, and re-invented, if i may say that.

a grand, and visually stimulating story, about time, duty, rebelion, defiance, and recreation, through laws of physics, and time.

rebirth happens here, and it was a great movie. btoh the visuals, and the sounds, and the song were truly epic.
my only complaint, was, i would love to hear this narrated, in english, or in italian one day. it would sound great!
(i dont know russian, sadly)

but thanks for the subtitles, it gave the movie a good vibe.

other than that, it was great! please, keep animating, and doing great stuff like this.
btw, have you seen any works from the clock crew?
great work, you rock, keep doing these!

This is an impressive piece, and I'm sorry your current score doesn't reflect that. This may be due in part to the small and fast subtitles, which drew the careful audience's eye away from the animation itself. If you could redub with English, or move the subtitles up a bit, that would help substantially.

So, this is a fairy tale about physics, or rather, time and the Universe as we know it. The vastly different styles and visual reinforcements to the story, make this animation come alive, and take meaning. Stellar effort, I'd feel really bad if this doesn't get Front Paged at the very least.

I've followed your artwork for a while now, and never expected this level of animation from you. I guess you really have broken out of 2D; very proud your ability to do this level of work.

Visually and intellectually stimulating.
Absolutely beautiful!

Ace0fredspades responds:

Really glad to read that ^____^ Thanx!

krusty: what the hell was that?!

okay seriously though. that kind of sounded like those stories that people tell their children, fables or talltales, so it was kinda interesting in that way. although the imagery was throwing me off. i have no idea what it was trying to teach me. and i don't see the moral anywhere. i guess i could look again but i don't want to because i still feel confused.

That means you're not a child anymore ^____^
