This film was for the 2012 49-hour Animation Competition hosted by the MG Collective. This entire film was conceived, conceptualized, and animated in just two days by my 4-man team. We received the theme/prompt "panic" at 6:30pm this past Friday and had until 7:30pm Sunday to finish it. Rather exhilarating ride!
This is hands down the best video I've seen on here! Bravo- I'd love to work together on a project I have some songs I've been working on.
many people feel like that ... when they are staying at hospital...i love this short animation so much
I think I might go back and try a pass at doing that - have something jump out at the end. My group was against it and we didn't have time to do it anyway
@01:45Very well done. Great animation and use of sounds. A little anti climactic for my taste, but I was frightened the whole time, so you did it right. I actually like the ending now that I really think about it. So many "scary" ideas revolve around something popping out, and the fear dissipates immediately, but this. This leaves me with something to be afraid of. The impending doom was never shown, and therefore it's constantly swimming through my mind. This is real fear. Strike my last comment. This isn't very well done. It's superior. (Sorry to gush. ^_^)
By all means, it's good to hear people's thoughts. I'm super stoked a ton of people got to see it from getting the DD and everyone has different opinions It's great!
@01:45Suxh an amazing representation of agoraphobia! I felt all his anxiety and pressure especially as it was building up! I love the ending and how detailed things are and the red button...I love the red! Almost like a reminder of a stop button xD Thank you so much for sharing and congratulations on the Daily Deviation! You very much deserved it
@01:45Wow...thank you for such kind words. I am truly honored to have evoked all these things in you through my film! Yes, the red button, usually to call the nurse, his cop-out from it all falls dead and he's left completely alone. Thanks again I'm glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully my other works can do the same
@01:45Ah yes, but as shown in the film, he's on an artificial lung pumping the air for him. One should assume as well that when his heartbeat doesn't change it means he's also on a pacemaker. I personal think it's extremely creepy to think your vitals like breathing and heart rate cannot change no matter how scared you are
