"Being Pretty" | Dystopian Animated Short Film (2017)

    "Hello, citizens of Autodale! You are pretty. Your neighbours, friends and family are also pretty. But sadly, not everyone is pretty. Some are ugly ...We, here at Autodale, do not want "uglies."
    This animation was extremely fun to work on. I definitely enjoy doing my own original stuff over Overwatch/Rick and Morty stuff. I hope that this (Like Redone) does well so I can continue doing original animations. It's so much more fun to explore my own personal creativity. Building this world from the ground up was awesome and I'm quite proud of the final result.
    This short explores themes of individualism, innocence and brainwashing which were very fun to play with; something I don't think I could do with the restrictive nature of a fan-film. Really hope you guys enjoy it!

    What we call 'pretty' is something that is more rare, everything rare is important to us humans. So if there was more 'pretty' people and less 'ugly' people, the ugly would now be called pretty. Just like how chubby ladies were seen pretty and strong back in the day.
    AMAZING VIDEO! It is so much like a book I remember reading years ago, but better, this is awesome, keep up the good work!

    When the PSA was like “your mother and father” I was like, “what about the gays? Do we just fly under the radar. Aight” and then I see this 2:31 👀

    I mean if we’re gonna get real for a sec, that’s already a present reality.

    Your neck isnt a shirt,so dont hang it.
    Your skin isnt paper,so dont cut it.
    Your heart isnt a door,so dont lock it.
    Your life isnt a film,so dont end it.
