I made this for my senior thesis.

A high school student named Sarah enters into a fantasy, gaming world called "The Game".
Sarah tries to defeat three stages in order to level up and beat "The Game".
She encounters a mysterious character called "The Hacker", who ultimately helps her out in the end.
The animation comments the themes of identity, redemption, and transformation.

Hope you guys enjoy!

Thanks for the Daily 2nd Place!
Holy moly! Thanks again for the front page!

Great Drama, story, dialogue, animation and I loved the quote at the end (even though others disagree), just one complaint, the narrator of the games voice acting sounds pretty bad. First he doesn't seem engaged (which I suppose may have been the intention), and second he has too much pitch in his voice.

Not sure what drug traimberia was on when she typed her review. I saw the 1 quote you had at the end which doesn't make change the video, and make it a religious video just because of a single religious quote. Their ramblings make no sense in their review, and it sounds like they get triggered over the smallest and simplest stuff so my advice is ignore that review. Put whatever you want into your video's.

Either way I am here to give 5 stars to make up for the -1 they gave you over something stupid like that. I may be an atheist but people need to stop getting so upset when they see something religious in something.

Nice. I really like how you related an internal stuggle with a teenager's real problems. Very cool.

Great animation. Great plot. Great way of incorporating everything. Only problem is when I enjoy something and then I find out it's religious, I dislike it. Why? I'm an open minded polytheistic. Barely anyone even knows what those words mean.

But everyone understands the general idea of being a Christian, because christians are everywhere in America, and most of them try to push their religion on other people or things. Some don't, like if you were to have created this but didn't put in the bible part. But most do. I've never been pushed by anyone practicing any other religion to believe the same things they do, to watch or eat or go to the places they go, or to practice their religion or support it without me initially saying "Yeah sure, let's see what your church is like" and agreeing to it knowingly. I don't like it. I don't like feeling pressured to think or do the same thing as other people when I don't think it's right.

So when you put in the religion part at the end of your video, it ruined the whole thing for me. I saw that all along, you had sort of tricked me by intertwining it with your video. You had "lessons" from the bible that you put in the animation that I thought were really clever, had you come up with them on your own. It made it less...good to me. I feel like not only do I feel I was I tricked because I wasn't warned it would be about religion, something not many people agree with me on, but I feel I lost a good animation. It's a shame, man.

I'm not saying don't practice your religion, but at least warn about your own religious, political, or generally any controversial views being on your creations. Anyway, 4/5 stars because of the animation and plot. Otherwise I would have given it a 0 because I don't like seeing religion. Good luck on NG, and good luck with animating.
