I feel that the lacking of superior animation and technicality actually added to this piece, because the beauty of it was not supposed to come from the visual prospective. Looks can be deceiving.
This movie's main strength actually came from how simply thought-provoking it could be, and the series of images it presented . Am I a rat destined to only add a small piece of information to the world and then pass on? Get tossed aside? It gives perspective on how insignificant one human life really can be. These puzzle pieces however, all fit together in some way. They mutually benefit and destroy one another with their presence and actions. The world could not be the way it is without them, and even the loss of one. No matter how apparently insignificant in the eyes of an entire galaxy, or universe. Is. . . for lack of a better term: Sacred.
In the end there is nothing we can do to avoid becoming a piece of the puzzle. The longer we remain in-hand, being interconnected to different puzzle pieces however; allows us more time to find just the perfect place where we fit in. Some aren't as lucky as others, but they should be allowed their chance to find their place no matter the size or span of the universe. I hope that one day my place will be revealed to me.
The silly thing about that dream though is that I have to make my own.
I'd love to see more of your work. Never stop animating.
