My Senior Film at Pratt.

Each frame, background, and effect were carefully hand drawn to bring the world of Breadheads to life for your viewing pleasure.

Starving soldiers divide a measly last meal when sick allies arrive at their base. When the allies' heads turn to bread, things get tense.


This is a high quality animation with good length and story.

I'd like to think that this is a fictional world where they were actually turning into bread; but, was your interpretation that is was only a hallucination?

I agree, in my head it is a product of a chemical warfare. This fictional world appreciates form over function, so there is an abundance of a kind of fun and unnecessarily creative violence. Additionally, the breadhead's mutation was only physical, so they experience the same fear and pain that you or I would. Seeing as how the emotional arc of cannibalism is the same whether transformation or hallucination is the cause, I opted for the more fun option.

However, I've gotten into weird, tangential arguments with people about how a work of fiction belongs to the interpretation of the viewer once it leaves the hands of the artist, and other such goofy debates. Basically, people have told me that they choose to view it as a hunger crazed mirage.

May the viewer enjoy whatever tone speaks to them most loudly.

I have been here since the beginning of this website. I have seen the All-Time great animations here ranging from Qi to Retarded Animal Babies and I have to say that this is one of the truly few Masterpieces that has come through this website. I stand and applaud you.

Wow, thats a heavy compliment. I'll take that standing ovation with an honored bow.

this was an amazing video kind of reminded me of masteraardvarks art style

codywalzel responds:

I just checked out Man Spaghetti after reading this, and that guy is one hell of a cartoonist. Thanks for the comparison, and for some new videos to enjoy.

Thant was f-ing awesome! Heaps nice backgrounds. Loving the sureal style. The animation was great, kinda reminded me of Aeon Flux. Nice job!

codywalzel responds:

I do like that Aeon Flux, a favorable comparison, thanks for watching!

Indeed disturbing! Great drawing man. Video shows what people are capable of when they are at the edge of death..
