IN-SHADOW: A Modern Odyssey

Share Collapse

This is not entertainment, it's a digital spell. It is an opportunity for transformation. Within the span of 13 minutes, you will be taken into the dark collective unconscious of our times, exploring media manipulation, consumer cultural, political polarization, and other themes that emanate from our collective underbelly.

“No tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell.” -C.G. Jung

Now this here was pretty intense of some good scenes nice effects and just an inspiration of a film here the animation really flows well and is actually a refreshing piece I had some fun with it


Just watch Invincible instead of this pretentious new-age trash. It's a better expression of holding on to love, hope, compassion, and moral values in a nihilistic and harsh reality, than whatever this pseudointellectual tin foil hat we-live-in-a-society bullshit will ever be.

Peter Gabriel would recognize his sense of critism with this masterpiece. the only thing is: The music started having a role in the animation triggering, but stopped even before it could take place with the whole animation. I was disapointed about it, but it's still worth a 4-1/2 on 5.

WoW speechless

Absolutely captivating, and awe inspiring.
Really makes you think.
11/10 would watch again.
