Poison TV

Share Collapse

I was suggested to put a SEIZURE WARNING on this due to flashing lights and imagery contained in the film. Please be aware that this film does contain flashing lights and bright, fast-moving imagery. Please watch at your own risk.

While watching TV late at night, a young boy tunes in to the TV's plan of global domination and human slavery.
Animated in After Effects and 3D Studio Max.
In homage to Jhonen Vasquez' art style
Featuring music and sound design by Nick Soole www.nicksoole.com

This animation is perfect! It tells everything that a lot of people do not know or recognize! A lot of people think that the things shown on the TV are true, but they are just manipulating us in different ways, like telling on the TV that someone who is good has done awful things to hate him. They are just enslaving us in handcuffs made of wrong opinions to control everyone! By the way, very good animation, and I love the fact you are bluntly telling the truth! 5 stars from me, and keep posting- world must know what is happening in the REAL world!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you got so much out of it!
I don't know if I have many more animated commentaries on what is happening in the 'real world', because I think that might just be a myth! Although you can check out my comic 'Checkers' World' which does bring up those kind of issues in a similarly twisted way! Available in 'Meatbucket Magazine' which can be ordered via www.mick-macks.com (Collected volumes can be found on the 'BOOKS' page)

This is perfect!!!
Remembers me of the movie They Live...
And that laugh... is amazing!!
TV just got bored and felt like scaring some kid!

JarrodElvin responds:

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it!
I haven't seen 'They Live' so perhaps I should check it out.
Thanks! That was me! I did the voices as well!
Yeah, he thought he'd scare a kid, and reveal his plan to someone he knows that nobody will believe!

i loved it - almost. the pixelated style, be it on purpose or a resolution issue, was horror. though the story was soo true and nicely creepy, cool drawing too, great anim. but the PIXEL distortion, aargh. kill it, and it's worth 5 stars.

JarrodElvin responds:

Thanks, I'm glad you loved it! The heavy pixelation was not intentional and the version I uploaded did not have it. I don't know what happened during the upload to NG, and I don't know if there is much I can do about it. Thank you for watching though.
If you'd like to see a cleaner version, you can go to my website www.mick-macks.com and view it on the Video page

Wish I could give it more than 5! stars!

JarrodElvin responds:

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it so much!

Thank you so much for this. I'm amazed at how well this was received by the NG community. Maybe there is hope.

JarrodElvin responds:

Thank you very much for your kind comment! I agree! Maybe there is some hope!
