The Sky Is Broken

Postby HeRetiK » Wed Sep 05, 2007 5:22 pm

Probably my most personal work as of now. Actually, for a while, I wasn't even sure if it would ever be seen by anyone.

Moby = Win

EDIT: Now that I've actually watched it, I really appreciate the depth of this piece.
Beautiful work.

I could probably write pages about this artwork, but since you say it's your most personal it's enough to say that I think it's your best, both when it comes to the artistic parts as well as the technical. It made me reflect and left me with many unanswered questions, but that doesn't really matter.

very VERY good work, one of your best pieces to date. the artwork, concept, music, emotion, atmosphere, everything just clicks. i really dig this one, and i feel grateful for my name to be in the credits. you really didn't need to do that. i'm just glad you think of me as someone who can be there for you when you need it. :)

You've been there when I needed someone to talk to. When I worked on this piece. You deserve being mentioned in the credits.

Your artwork has dramatically improved over your last piece.

And although the music fit well, I hope this isn't the kind of stuff you listen to. The slow pace and monotone voice would drive me over the edge.

I listened endlessly to this song while making the movie. Because I needed it.

Other than that I'm pretty moody as far as music is concerned.
It happens that I listen to Portishead, jump to Slayer, switch back to some relaxing Boards of Canada only to end up with cleaning my head with some noisy Venetian Snares track. After which I need some classic Metallica.

I dunno. I generally consider anyone to be THAT depressed over a relationship to be ignorant fools.

But I don't believe in love, so what do I know?

This reminds me of a friend of mine who once said that he simply doesn't understand depression, even though he acknowledges it as an illness.

I suppose some things can't be really understood unless you either
1) have made similar experiences
2) have enough empathy


This doesn't really matter right now though.

Fact is, that I don't expect you or anyone else around to truly understand the situation. How should you anyways? You don't know the story, the events that lead me to where I am now.

You're right. Though how many times are break-ups much different from another. Though (if I recall in the video, like hell I'm gonna watch the whole thing all over again) you said you were sorry (I think!). So maybe there's something there.

I personally liked it. Although I had to watch it over, in order to understand it a little better. Very well done. 5/5

Wow...very different to most things Ive seen from you before.
Artwork was excellent. It was obvious that a lot went into this both artistically and emotionally and this makes it hard not to respect.
No eyes again I see :P

I'm glad you decided to turn something negative into something creative, and cared to share it with us.

Also hope your state of mind is improving.

I agree that your skills have improved a lot, the whole thing fits together very well and has a great atmosphere, definately loved it. As Hellbilly said, thanks for sharing.

EDIT:
some of your previous work had options to pause or move through scenes, did you intentionally leave it out or did you forget?

I left it out because pausing / fast forwarding would have messed up the timing in most scene.
(for those with a little knowledge in Flash, the scenes mainly contain MovieClips that continue playing despite pausing the main timeline)

There are mostly MovieClips inside these MovieClips as well. And some parts are scripted (the rain, that is)

I think there's a way to recursively iterate through the child MovieClips of a MovieClip. Been too lazy to look into that, as I must admit.

Also, I just submitted it on NG:
