THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'm just now watching this is so beautiful I'm so honored you used my song!!!!

This caught me off guard... and put a smile on my face.

This is pretty nice but the ending is pretty creepy. Nice job!

WTF did I just watch? And why am I rating it so highly? God, there are immersive games with 50+ hours of playtime that I have rated lower than this simple 45 second joke.

nicely drawn+well animated (short) movie, with good sequences, nice action lines, a PERFECTLY drawn ''flame''-line of the spaceship that approached the ''stone planet'', and a nice depiction/animation of the same spaceship reaching the planets surface.
then, an equally (nicely) drawn astronaut gets out of the ship, and declares that this planet is conquered/explored in the name of his country/world...
then, things became weird. [SPOILERS] he removed his helmet, and he died?
he froze to death, only to reveal that the countless amounts of broken, petrified ''round, smiling stones'' that existed on the planet were infact, human heads, frozen due to spacemen removing their helmets(WHY?!)...
other than having the element of a ''comedic irony'', i dont see why this happened, even if it was a (kinda) funny gag to depict.
unless the planet's atmosphere had gasses that forced the astronauts to remove their helmets...
but that wasnt shown in an obvious way, so the logic/meaning in there was lost.
other than that though, the whole movie was good.
it had great animation sequences, and amazing visuals/drawings in general.
also its speed was good...

all in all, great work, keep it up, and do more like this.
