That description's almost too abstract! Watching the stopmotion, I was thinking it'd be a symbolism on birth, the struggle and sacrifice of bringing forth new life... didn't get that sense of destruction or bombing either, just a sense of hardship, and those self-igniting matches were a really cool effect, further expanded with claymation. Overall very smooth and moody animation, the music a large part of that atmosphere. Doesn't seem to deliver the message it's supposed to, but it was great! Always curious about how many photos work like this takes btw, any estimate? Keep up the great work!
