@01:02This is true, however, when people are depressed they want to scream because they want their voice to be heard and they just want to be noticed. I'm speaking from personal experience. :) I think depression and sadness go hand in hand. Depression is a form of sadness. Melting and peeling would've been good representations too. :)

I can't lie, it did really creep me out a bit, but I got that feeling like I had to know what happened to her. It's so sad...but I think I can relate to feeling like that sometimes. :nod:

Wonderful video! Keep up the great work!

ZOMG! Elaine nice animation and great portfolio website. That thing creeped me out! I interpreted the red 'demon' as what she perceived herself as and was trying to hide it. The last scene really made me sad and want to help her:(

Damb, did you feel frightened while animating this? I will be studying animation next year and this was really inspiring.

@00:21Some people seem to think this person in the mirror is how she sees herself, but it's more likely to be the depressed part inside of her. It's not like the thing in the mirror is noticeably ugly, but more like something that suffers.

@01:02One more word; outstanding scream! But I think the screaming is for sadness; depression isn't sadness ... it doesn't feel like it, so I would imagine the red dude either melting or peeling instead of screaming.

This is a beautiful animation you've created. I believe everyone whose experienced a depressive state can relate to your film. The colors fit the mood very well and the music was ever haunting throughout the whole story. The being inside, crying out for help, or that's the impression I get, keeps the view locked into the story, keeps us on the edge of our seats so to speak. I really enjoyed watching this :) I hope to see more from you in the future.
