  • An exploration of ocean plastic, avatars and adaptive bottom feeders. The musical!
    Also an experiment in pre-rendered graphics.
    The name comes from a box of miscellaneous plastic objects my child has. Things that are not categorically blocks or figurines or anything describable. I referred to them as "gonks", which was pronounced by my then-2-year-old as “donks". This film was me making my own set of donks, and building silly things out of them.
    Made by myself over 16 months, at WOMBOT @wombotstudio (a new studio, which is me and my wife, in our garage)

    4:50 I don’t think I’ve ever heard anything as cool as a mechanical in-universe sound (namely, the Submawhale reversing, making beeping like it was a pickup truck) so quickly becoming an out-of-universe forboding musical tone warning of danger. They’re both warning tones with insanely different weight and fear.
    It’d be like if a horror movie somehow made the squeaking of the rickety basement stairs and the violin sting of the monster appearing based on the same sound. That’s crazy effective.

    [5:20] - The way that this fades out with each lighter part of the shading is so well done here. You've absolutely nailed that 1960's animated cartoon cross-fade to black.

    • Temmie Destructo

    I love the call back of the soundtrack from the beginning, 0:34, and when the sub was yanked down into the void of the donks, 4:53.
    Also, while making this, I realized that the beeping is what alerted the donks to the presence of the sub whale, as when the boat came with a new supply of character creation pieces. So the sub whale kinda told the donks that new stuff/food is here.
    Edit: I just love the dramatic "Oh No" the soundtrack has when concerning what is happening at that moment

      @Rincewindl it’s open-ended. It doesn’t have to represent one thing. It rings true, which is why it’s enjoyable.
      Personally, I find the theme of ocean pollution to be too obvious, and I don’t think it’s very relevant to what happens in the animation. It seems more to portray competition as it relates to consideration (or lack thereof), resources, and materialism, but that’s just my take.

    Here's my idea of Donk physiology:
    Donks normally appear as formless black creatures with many legs and glowing, color-changing eyes. They can only survive in one place: a dark, near-watertight cavern beneath the Omnipresent Ocean, where little light reaches. Donks are vulnerable to injury and attack due to their bodies being so soft and malleable, so they attempt to cover their bodies with a layer of protection. Due to the massive dumping of garbage and used avatar parts in the ocean above (which consequently float down into the Donk cavern), Donks have developed a dependency on the garbage, as there isn't much else to serve as protection. Depending on where a Donk makes its home can change its capabilities, such as improving its sense of sight or touch. Now, a single Donk is not very intelligent, but these creatures can link to each other mentally (and usually also physically) to create a hive-minded colony that acts like one organism. It is believed that the larger a Donk colony is, the more intelligent and self-aware it becomes. Interestingly, certain Donk colonies have different personalities, capabilities and traits depending on the Donks they are made out of.

    Oh my god, the dynamic transition from the comedic “submarine going in reverse using sonar tones” to the tense music where the submarine gets seized by the creatures from below is so, so clean and creates an incredible feeling

    Usually in animations and movies music is used as a background noise and has very little connection to what’s happening on the screen, but in this film visuals and sounds are inseparable. This is truly genius

    This kind of stuff makes me hopeful that artists will still be valuable for a long time even after the AI stuff.
    An AI would not be creative nor directed nor talented enough to come up with something like this and put it together.
    But maybe even that day will come eventually sadly. Even when that day comes, I still appreciate the creativity and work of human artists like you! keep up the good work!

    If Felix doesn't extend it into its own thing then that's a missed opportunity. Felix Colgrave's extended ost albums were red-hot, I wish he still did them.
