i like the vibe and mood of this whole thing.
Nice visual effects and creepy character models.
I really liked this.

Wow nice

Wow I have to say I am "IN-LOVE" with the art alone, I love this grungy look, and all the effects like the misty clouds is looking really good as for the story itself that was just as amazing, I think you should make this into a series of some sort and really ad onto it with this style there is really something different here with great ideas and quality, So with this flick I can see how your fruits of labor can really be noticed as you have pushed the ideas. I have enjoyed your work here today, It was a nice movie choice so nice job indeed.

Gerkinman responds:

Thanks for taking the time to write up this big review! I dont know that I will be returning to these characters for a series, but a lot of the animated shorts I am currently working on share the same aesthetic and universe!

That was pretty frightening! It really draws you in in a strange way

Gerkinman responds:

Im glad my work had that effect on you. B)

The hit sound of the bat is slightly mistimed

Gerkinman responds:

Ah piss, your right, it is a bit. -_-

Hey, Happy Birthday Gerkinman! What an animation to make for such a day... I don't seem to be catching the gist of this though. Is it random. Is there a message. Is the briefcase never more important than your life? Does the briefcase not really matter after all? Is he simply paranoid, but then his paranoia comes to fruition after all? Hmmm. Not sure what to make of this, but interesting it was.


Gerkinman responds:

Thank you kindly Cyberdevil <3

All of those questions are kind of the point of the piece. It was based on a dream I had, and I wanted this to feel as much like a dream as I could manage. Its a direction I am taking with a lot of my upcoming work as well. Some might find that unsatisfying but I think its better to make people question things, to get them thinking, then it is to make something that makes perfect sense but leaves no lasting impression. Hopefully I will improve at that sort of storytelling over time.

Thanks for leaving your thoughs! <3
