Very, very lovely. Great song, too.

I think this could have been quite a bit stronger had there been a few more human interactions. It seems a bit lacking without a little more tension. I like the thought process though.

Interesting point, toddy. There actually was more human interaction but it just wouldn't fit into the cut so I decided to leave it out, but I definitely understand what you're saying in that more face to face interaction might have lead to a greater sense of progressing tension. Thanks for the constructive criticism and I'm glad you liked it all the same.

liked it very much. despite the lack of human interaction it does a fine job of developing a story and a theme, and manages to look great doing so.

Nice. great to see an artist pulling off the quirkiness and surrealist aspect required to create a short film narrative. I agree with the comments above, but i like the fact it dwells on the loneliness which is the main drive for this solemn character. Good job Rylan

Definitely a bit Timely-esque, but great.

Great video. I, for whatever it's worth, also dig the fact that he's alone throughout the vid. Nice job.
