Creepy Estonia dubstep animation. 😱

RistoKy responds:

You're Right about That! :)
Thank You!

Simple, poignant, to the point and deals with social issues. Really enjoyed it. Love the animation. I t feels like one of those 'Mr Bean' episodes (not much talking) but the emphasis on the story is top notch.

RistoKy responds:

Awww Thank You Very Much! :)

This is well done with a followable plot that isn't just another abstract spiral into madness like similarly styled films.
And thank you for making an animated art film that isn't "technology bad because nature good" and instead focusing on mental health issues that need to be addressed more.
Also, I must commend you on making the jarring style fit the story (I saw below it was due to your lack of experience, but it shows great promise that you can work around that)

Great job!

RistoKy responds:

Thank You so much Davlen570!
The Style was complelety Intentional, the lack of experience was more on the Storytelling part, cause' the Fellow below found it Unfollowable or such :) + it was done in 2017 and I've come A very Long wayy since :D
Truly Glad you Enjoyed it! :)

Is it some kind of standard that art films have to be disgusting and depressing?

RistoKy responds:

I think it's mostly True :D, cause' when I've visited Festivals, then most of them are quite the Standard :)
So it seems the answer is Mostly Yeh! :D

the message is very on the nose but I love the adult swim vibes

RistoKy responds:

Thank You Very Much! I really appreciate this! :)
