Hope this is the same inward as does the zx releases, sounds so from the music and the animation style but I'm not sure.

This looks so great, but should have end after 2 minutes. It's way too long and make me nearly fall asleep as it seemed it will never end! Nevertheless here's my thumb for the first two minutes.

I feel this.
Despite being perhaps a bit long, it's fantastic.

I've watched it 5 times already. The best video for me in the compo. Amazing expressivity, pure genius.

I'm saving my vote because in the compo I thought it to be absolutely crap, but maybe that was due to my state of conciousness ;)
Very original and interesting.

'inspired' by a certain Tool video. i think this isn't very original and the soundtrack didn't quite get me. even if i'm a big fan of the YM and AY chipsound. nobody can deny the enourmous amount of work on the stop-motion, though. so, thumbs up!

Too arty for me. Surely much work, but the "music" is a turn-off and it's not very fluent.

a little bit boring for me
added on the 2008-03-24 18:57:50 by RA RA
absolutely fantastic. the creator/creation dilemma is worked out really good (especially considering how worn-up this topic is since hundreds of years, from the golem legend over frankenstein's monster to stanislaw lem). the colors are an eye-pleaser, the movements are dynamic, fluent and unpredictable. and the zx spectrum soundtrack is really haunting (can't you guys put up an mp3 of it?) the only negative thing was that it is simply too long. not only too long for the compo, but in general. the tension got lost due to the length.
rulez added on the 2008-03-24 21:02:02 by dipswitch dipswitch
Good, somehow depressing though. Was it done with stop motion and "real" stuff, or cg ?
rulez added on the 2008-03-24 21:41:49 by Zweckform Zweckform
afaik, stopmotion. but i guess elfh can tell more about the making-of as soon as he arrives back home.

Well, the message of the demo is excellent, but could have made better. Next time you dont pick up stuff you find on the sidewalk if you plan an animation, mkay? :)

I turn it into metaphor, of course, and maybe I shouldn't - but it is a powerful piece.

i respect this from an artistic point of view, but really it dragged on too much.. it was like a demo with one or two parts but reused over and over to fill out the time.

Why the fuck ever this was submitted at a demoparty completely escapes me.

As work of art itself tho, i can only second most ppl who posted before be. Very good work. And even the chip soundtrack fits in a twisted way.

elfh: there are literally hundrets of animation festivals around the globe that are accepting international entries all year round (check for deadlines) ... you shouldn't have a problem finding enough compatible venues. if your film will be accepted is another thing tho ... ;) good luck!

elfh, check out filmfestivals.com, shortfilmdepot.com and reelport.com for info and online submissions on filmfestivals.

kb, for some people at bp this was the only prod that made the whole compo worth watching. so i wouldnt say that it was in a wrong place. :)

I wish there would be some kind of stronger narrative, some forceful direction and better lighting (shadows!). It looks neat, but it interests so little.
added on the 2008-04-05 12:26:08 by tomaes tomaes
i think i realized what the problem was with this - the look was so organic and then it was accompanied with chipsounds... i think some instrumented music would've fit better.
added on the 2008-04-05 13:38:59 by Gargaj Gargaj
Regarding the music I have to second Gargaj, and while the style of this animation doesn't appeal to me, I have to give a thumb for the effort and for just being a bit different...

I have utmost respect for the work that has gone into it. During the compo I have to admit though that I was thinking "geez, how long IS this clip?".. and it was partly getting a repetitive. But elfh, you seriously have to get out there with this clip. I could imagine that at some filmfestivals this would be a soaring success. You should absolutely go for it. Please.

How long did you guys work on this? It's amazing.

I liked the style, and the tune is damn good... but the frame by frame animation seems a bit jerky to me.

Very close to a thumb-down but as I had done a wrong thumb down once today, I'll better wait and have a 3rd look :)

rulez added on the 2008-09-07 21:35:07 by T$ T$
The length surely decreased the "fun factor", but if it was shorter it definitely wouldn't have passed the same kind of a feel of frustaration.

rulez added on the 2009-07-13 07:58:09 by NeARAZ NeARAZ
Due to the frame by frame editing it's really choppy and thus hard to follow, also the whole environment is somewhat harsh. But the technical aspects aside, this is really good. I really like the expressivity and atmosphere of this, and the music in my opinion fits really well here too.
rulez added on the 2009-07-25 13:20:08 by noby noby
It's a moody, atmospheric piece of animation, set to an ambient digital soundtrack, conveying emotions of frustration and hopelessness. Truly this is art!

Thumbs up for being progressive!
