I think this just might be the most amazing/creative/fantastical thing I have ever seen! I guess a few parts were a bit stretched and overused, but phenomenal work nonetheless. I can only assume this is a music video, though I don't think they were intentionally trying to persuade that. I'm still showing everyone I know! :-)

Very creative and imaginative. :) It takes a lot of time and energy to complete a stop animation project, and they're always a nice change of pace. I like where the story was going but I think you could have fleshed it out a bit more. I felt like the characters were unconnected a many times and that the ending could have been stronger (the color was a great touch though). :)

Feels very much like a music video. Not sure if that was the intention but the title is also the songs title which makes me pretty much declare it. It's definitely not a bad thing, I think that what this piece works best as. It's simple, slightly shapeless, slightly structured but very very unique.

I like the story. Glad to see they wanted away from the tech world. And the colour at the end gave a sense of hope.

I like the song it harmonizes well with the animation. The imaginary world they created and how they interacted with the props and scenery is amazing. The best part was the use of bright colors in the end.
