Impressive work, though thanks to the post title, I'm disappointed it wasn't set to Talking Heads music.

Beautiful art project.

Not to take away from this at all, I loved it, but I'm still waiting on 'high tech' shorts that had the same intense haunting quality that I have memories of from pre-Avid-digital-3d-compositing times that were made on a shoestring budget clearly counting every frame. Now sometimes memories are better than when something is revisited but I still want more guts and poignancy from these kids.

I don't believe that those exploding blossoms would cause the buildings to collapse.

This was an inside job.

I need to run it again with the sound on. The film has a splendid look to it anyway, and I have a secret passion for circuitous logic and fractals...but this followed it and I thought it was also really good.

Oh, and there is a billboard for Wrapped, with the rat looking at a vortex of the green, in the town square somewhere in the beginning.

Hiding somewhere in this organization is a terrorist plant.
