Great post. Dunno what to make of "The Message" tho. I'm sure someone will enlighten me soon.

This is good. The creators of this animation are Zumbakamera.

The message is "don't get greedy with hairy eyeballs," and its a timeless one.

The message is stay on guard for robots with pointy hats.

The internet is stuck, can somebody mirror this?

Cool visual look, but otherwise not that interesting or enlightening. It explores societal conflict about as deeply as the armies of stick men that do battle in the margins of my notebooks.

Very cute, and definitely artistically appealing. I kept trying to figure out where they lifted all the sound effects from, though.

Thank icosahedral, loved the futuristic Peruvian tribal look. It reminded me of Indonesian shadow puppets.

Didn't think it was that deep but enjoyed it all the same. The other strange little movies on the Zumbakamera site are also interesting.

These are the different percentages it got stuck at before i had to reload and try again.

i suspect these numbers mean something.

But in order to be sure i will have to construct some kind of giant machine. Any hairy eyeballs produced will be purely a side effect. i swear.

One interesting thing about this is that silhouette animation similar to this, but far lower-tech, was used in a film that many consider to be the first animated movie: Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed, or "The Adventures of Prince Achmed."

That was truly beautiful. I'll be watching this several times.

It reminds me of the Tales Of The Beanworld comix. I like it.
