@02:26I really like how you let the paint almost absorb him from the edges in. :)

@03:09I took this to be commentary on humanity's dependence on oil and other natural resources...something that has been weighing on my mind lately. We are on the downward slope of the oil peak...
@00:43I love this, it is so intriguing...

@01:31Ah! That's clever. I kept expecting the line to begin from between his eyes and move to the right, but you made it go all the way around behind his head, which was a more powerful image.

@01:18i adore this part of the movie, where he is torn in half. i feel like this one picture where he opens his eyes really completes this part of the scene.

also, i mistakenly watched this without sound the first time, and i would actually recommend watching it once muted. it makes a horribly eerie atmophere.
@00:01man.. I watched the all film scared of what would happen next.

@03:07I doubt that that is what he was going for, but any way you would like to interpret it is alright!

@03:04A very valid point. My guess is that the video is about humanity's bid to consume earths natural resources at an expanding rate, resources such as coal or oil. The interesting thing in this video is the bandages. I guess it signifies how untouched and shielded the earth was before we dug our claws into it. The white roots at the end look like they are signifying the earth reclaiming itself at "the end of humanity".

@03:12Love the ending. Wish the rest of it was a smoother animation instead of a giant skip from one area being painted to another.

Some may criticize this as expecting too much but i have seen people do similar things with paint and it would be all about just painting less and taking more time to do it. I feel the ending was the best part and well executed.
About ending of the video:

The end symbolizes for me the nature, which brings back their living room, which was previously destroyed by mankind and exploited.
But it's up to you what it says for you.
@03:12Because my English is really bad that I use google translator. I apologize now for any incorrect English.

I am truly overwhelmed by all your comments.And I never thought that my little school project is such a positive response.
I personally thought to myself, my personal story in the video, but I think it's beautiful, like each of you sees his own story in the video.

Thanks for your comments. I'm very happy.
