Well that was pretty trippy! Wonder if all the video footage on the screen was made exclusively for this as well? If so: it's an impressive variety. I like the lucid style of animation too, how the images shift, and blur, and seem to fade into each other through the motions. The quality of photography is a bit dark, but considering the theme it seems to work well anyway. If you want to make smooth stopmotion I'd recommend having a placeholder for the paper though, and a stand for the camera, so neither shifts around, but in this case that had a pretty interesting effect on the atmosphere.

All in all a twisted, trippy but intriguing movie, and in the end... I guess it's all about drugs. Deep meaning considering the concept's a random robot boy who doesn't seem to have neither motives nor temptations. It's all a trip.


I liked this, i don't know why, i just did.

You had the david firth "salad fingers" audio in the beginning.
Then on the tv screen you found the creepiest videos you could probably find on the internet and placed them in your animated short.

The animation, designs, backgrounds, and video quality need some improvement.

I love David Firth and Boards of Canada so this was instantly awesome even though I wanted to hate on it.

Tool huh? Nice ending. Was good random, most random flash movies are not amusing, but this one was fun to watch. It's done with real pencils right? The asain dude crying over his soup was great and I don't know why...

I give this 5 stars cuz of nice artwork, but I think you should change rating to ''M'' cause this may cause some nightmares even in teenagers and kids due to the perturbating atmosphere and those random videos. Apart of that, nice video :D
