Tired to make this in 3 days but failed. Made it in 2 weeks. Just a fun exercise. Tell me what you think. Critiques are always welcome.

Beautiful and tragic. Truly moving. Music and sound effects were done nicely. The animation style was a bit amateurish though, but this may have been intentional, even necessary, to soften the cruelty of the material. A more realistic face on the calf could have expressed a more empathetic range of shock, fear, and rebellion, but it might also have made this too real and sad.

All in all, beautiful.

damn....I didn't see that coming but I should've...Why the hell is this labeled as a comedy? I'm not a huge sentimental so I don't really get emotional or outspoken over these issues, but this flash was well made and made me feel a little bad. I liked that we saw what he was imagining at the time of his capture/death/slaughter. Tragic but poignant. The only issue was the animation and quality of the drawings. It just looked cheap and a little childish, for rather dark subject matter. overall well done

Nice twist. Reminds me of "An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge" by Ambrose Bierce.

Yes you can, call me sadistic monster or something, but I like this ending, and animation overall.
Plants live just like animals, and you always have to kill something to get food. Only expection are milk and milk products.
