My favorite part about this short is how rewatchable it is for multiple reasons.

The syncing with the excellent music track, the wide variety of emotions being paired wonderfully with the audio, the best example being the large kick of the main character entering the room.

I'm quite curious about some of the behind the scenes of the piece as I like to analyze the choices artists make, but the piece is vague in that wonderful way that allows you to come to your own conclusion as well if you so desire.

My current interpretation is that the character is frustrated with themselves and is looking at themselves as a person in the mirror, judging their choices or how they put too much faith into another person and perhaps coming to some conclusion that they just have to live with themselves. Though perhaps they are still a little unstable as they have a date with their reflection and the short ends on their ripped up image of themselves put back together with tape, showing the beginnings of the recovery of their self-image. That interpretation is probably incorrect, however, I enjoy the short for being able to support that interpretation.

Lastly, the visual style, the graininess that matches the static of the audio. The dinginess of the background, the snappiness of everything. So much to praise. Thank you for making this and sharing it!

I don't know how to compare this to something I know,
it has that Akira colouring look to it ...which I love about, nothing
to complex, but simple, has that Jamie Hewlett drawing style to it and mostly...
has a funny ending too...he's dating himself, moral of the story ...ALWAYS LOVE YOURSELF ...
I think it is ...I believe and for all it's worth, good film and very nice and unique

Cool animation! Nice music too! The tone is a little depressing though!

Great job!

this is super stylish and smooth, amazing work!!
