"You think you understand? All the lies? All the needless atrocities?...
No. There is reason, and I want to show you..."
Deep in the heart of Autodale lives their Mayor. As old as the town itself, a once great inventor, now a gangly and decaying but undying thing which the townsfolk have long forgotten, but continue to echo his machine-obsessed beliefs.
This film follows Autodale's Exceptional Woman as she journey's deep down the rabbit hole of the Mayor's Immortal Machine.

This film was one of the most challenging and taxing projects of my life. The film covers a subject matter that is extremely difficult to pull off from an artistic and technical standpoint. Nothing about the setting, characters or structure of this film was easy to do. That's actually the reason I've put off tackling the heart of Autodale and the Matriarch for so long. I knew to pull it off successfully would require a tremendous amount of time, effort and artistic know-how which I didn't feel confident I could do.
It wasn't until after finishing my previous and longest animated short film, "Friendly Shadow", that I finally felt that I was at the skill level required for this gigantic project.
I'm not in love with all of it, but overall I think it definitely succeeded. This film is extremely ambitious and grand and I'm extremely proud of the result. I really hope you guys like it too! :D

Voice Actors:
Adrienne Cox - "Exceptional Woman", "Hive", "The Matriarch".
David Armsby - "The Mayor"
Original Music composed by Rayshaun Thompson and Cameron Moody.

This is definitely one of the best works of yours, that being said please don't stress yourself too much. A short like this made by a one man army is already an achievement on itself. All the work you put in your shorts is stunning, so don't be afraid to ask for help if something's too laborious. Really, amazing work David.

I think the best part of this series is there are no "good" or "bad" guys, and no insidious ideology that they are justifying the atrocities in the name of. Rather, the Mayor is choosing the only viable option to prevent the end of human existence itself - he recognizes there are no good choices, that the outside world is too corrupted, diseased, and broken to ever fix. All he can do is continue to sustain what is left of human's miserable existence by creating a reality where individuals can live as happily deluded as possible. But in the end, the Mayor knows that it is all for nought, and even he will succumb to fate.

So are all the hive members people who saw through the lies? Or is the middle girl the first to do that and those in the hive are from before the city was finalized? Also, are all hive members female? I saw some that looked male but only heard female voices, especially the duo that are wrapped together.
BlackCover95 پیش 6 روز
•No, just the first one was the one to see through it all. •The others were specifically collected by her, assimilated to be a giant think tank. •There are indeed make Hive members (the Friendly Shadow used to be in the Hive), but they all share the Exceptional Woman’s voice.

is...is the mother of nature dead? are there more then one of her? dave said that the world of the great rat and terrible hound and the world of autodale are the same, and in that story, the rat has a sculpture of the mother of nature, so is the mother of nature dead, or did she do this?

The fascinating bit is that the goddess isn't really being kept alive by him to protect the people, the people are being kept alive by him and in a tightly controlled system to use as fuel to try and keep alive the goddess. So they're told lies so at least the ones that haven't been harvested yet are happy, but none of it means anything its all just to hide that they're fuel. Simultaneously the goddess clearly doesn't want this at all and it even causes her pain; she wants to heal them. But she doesn't hate him despite what he's doing and how it hurts her. So complex.

Do you think the boy from the husband and wife we saw in Model Citizen is the dad that died in Friendly Shadow? The little girl seems oddly similar to the one we see waving, the only thing I can see wrong with this is the fact that the wife has a pixie cut, and they have two sons- one which I am pretty sure is older that the girl, which would have made them standing with them. I don't know. I like to think everything is all related, so really it is just my head cannon. Also, I think the man was killed off by the robots or " Handyman" . I am pretty sure the Handyman found out the daughter was hanging out with the "Freaks", so they tried to kill her, but instead the dad, or the man, saw his daughter about to die and intervened. Ultimately, causing his death and making it possible for his daughter to run away. We see Friendly Shadow find the girl and her friend but we don't really know what happened to him? Did the hive rewire him or kill him off???

It's so disturbing that Mayor was actually made with human skin. They somehow collected them (I don't want to think how) and attached them all together. The bad part is the place is huge and it looks like it was all covered with fresh human skin and limbs. I also don't want to imagine what Mayor did to her to turn a human to that disgusting head creature thing.

So, he found basically a goddess of life. After she helped her daughter, she 'died', so he did what he could to bring her back to life and keep her alive, by slowly replacing her skin of bark to flesh so she could accept blood to continue living. By the looks of it, she seems at least content with being alive, even leaning into the mayor's touch. But the sounds she made when blood was injected say otherwise. Perhaps her body still isn't used to the flesh and blood, so it always hurts her. Or, perhaps he hurts her on purpose in order to get like, a burst of healing, or something like that. Also...wonder if we'll see anything with that little girl again. I'm sure being the first touched by the goddess became some kind of honor.

What's happening here is the earth is evolving and the mayor desperately trying to stick to the old ways instead of surrendering to nature and fighting against her instead he arrogantly thinks hes saving her. The freaks are proof of his arrogance. What hes doing isnt necessary, but hes done too much ri keep this going so he cant in his mind give it up. The people of ato dale aslo represent us .

I understand that the creator of Autodale maintained this bizarre utopia to keep the citizens of the city free from the disease, but the question is, what guarantees that this disease still exists and that it wasn't eradicated years, or perhaps centuries ago?
