  • Ah Their Agenda

    I suppose this would be called “Hero in the Closet” if the same gun saved his family from an intruder..

    • Don’t reproduce.

      • Ah Their Agenda

        Is it not a valid statement, and if not why?

        • Please, this is a motion graphics board, not a forum to discuss your gun rights paranoia.

    • mtal80

      Agree. The monster is the feeling that a child shouldn’t understand and respect firearms.

      Great animation and story nonetheless though.

    Ah Their Agenda: paranoid much?

    • Ah Their Agenda

      Ha, no. I just like f’ing with people.

  • Everyone, please keep it focused and constructive.

  • Great film !

  • Alain

    Gret work. Simple and real.

  • I wasn’t excepting the ending to be so dark. Shame on the parents. It was produced really well. Loved the design and color palette.

  • wtf

    i thought it would go down that “pretentious mediocrity” route… but then he killed the kid… and all of a sudden it has a sophisticated touch to it… profoundness rules!!!

  • Bravo, moving and smart, well directed. :)
