"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.

Yo you guys should drop dead.. I've had enough existential crisises to understand that we all go through this every day but we don't realize it cuz we're so distracted.

You should make the girl that left Autodale in "Friendly Shadow" come back and help free Autodale's citizens or something like that. That would be awesome. Better yet, you should write a book or a series of novels about this. This is just too good. It is insanely dark and terrifying but I found it beautiful how the shadow helped the little girl escape out of empathy knowing that, had he brought the girl back from the sewers, she would either be experimented on or die. Not to mention her mother would also be taken away and killed because of her suffering state after her husband died. There's also more to the freaks than we thought. They are intelligent, and feel emotion as well. Damn, this is just too awesome!

And the old man demonstrates the process called "Indoctrination." How you make real monsters, and dress them up. Make them look 'pretty.' And burn down everything else. If you look at Autodale and don't think about the how and why of it, you're... kind of missing the point. Though, honest truth is, it's less painful to miss the point of this series than it is to understand and think about that point. Because this series is reflecting what our world is like at its worst. And no, it ain't pretty. :Irony Strikes:

what happened to the mayor's daughter? did she become one of the torso-machine-ladies? she was cured of the disease, but what happened after? and how did the tree lady become so humanlike? lots of questions and lots of answers.
George Hackett
George Hackett 2 kun oldin
So, I think I get most of it. Autodale keeps the tree lady alive so she can protect its citizens from the plague. What I don't understand is why they only feed the abnormal ones to her. Why the ugly ones? Is there something about being different that makes you more nutritious?
George Hackett
George Hackett 2 kun oldin
What I don't understand is, if the plague creates Freaks, and Autodale was created to keep out the plague, then how does Hive not know about the Freaks? does this mean the Freaks are separate from the plague? A form of evolution, maybe, influenced over millenia? After all, they don't explicitly say how long Autodale's been up and running.

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 10 kun oldin
•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???
