The SalaryMan

Share Collapse

The salaryman is an indirect spiritual sequel to "The artist"
As the artist accepted the job and walk out of the office, we leave him to his story and redirect our focus on the salaryman, who he works under the company.

The animation is a manifestation of the situation in my home country, where everyone is too busy earning a living and making sure they bring back food on the table.

The Government calls out to everyone to be more productive, warn us of many capable people out there taking every opportunity to take our jobs, making sure we work hard, earn your salary, be a family man and repeat till you are unable to work anymore.

The animation is a shoutout to this madness that is ongoing ever since our country went into full over-drive in progress.

Thanks for watching.

The salaryman's ending is the answer to the artist's ending of "did he really kill himself" in the boss's room. The answer is no, as it was all a manifestation in his mind when he took his pay cheque.

Make more about this stick figure and the boss please, it's pretty fun, thank you if you do. I love how you make this

This has always been my favorite piece. It totally relates to the current day workplace and their employees. You've depicted the nature of the technologically tangled society of today and in the end inferred that if we become slaves to our jobs we end up losing everything, even our self-identity.

this is just fantastic work man, can you please tell me the music score names or where i can get it, its just amazing.

You have really touched my heart as this type of "life" is happening to everyone including myself in the society. Great job in particular for the desperate mobs holding the resume

Very deep and moving but wait... did the guy's son DIE? I sort of don't get when he comes home and the wife's cleaning up the toys and all... what happened? o.o

NCH responds:

no, its just a scene to establish that the dad is comming back very late home and never had a chance to see his kid. the kid was already in bed sleeping everytime the dad comes home.

anyway, it may partly be my fault for omitting out a scene where he looks at his sleeping son(it was planned) for time constrains.
