Nice short! I liked it! The story is quite good, with the long of completing a dream, and actually do it, but in the end I was thinking: "euh, and what now?". Well, we have to use our imagination I guess :)

But: On the railwaystation the black people walk very synchronical (bad spelled, sry). Maybe that was by purpose, but to better show the "chaos", it would be better if they walked more random.

I would have like to have done more at the end of the animation but because it was a uni project with a tight deadline i had to end it where it did.

Totally agree with you about the timing of the shadow characters, I intend to go back and redo a couple of scene giving them slightly staggered motions.

Iain i dont expect anything else from you, lovely piece of work. I like the shadow people walking the smae gives the impression of everyone complying to how the world should be and are corporation robots. I know the changes you are going to make and I think you will have a beautiful piece when you have changed them (not that it aint already)
