This animation in the literal form, is about the artistic and cultural movement: Surrealism.

The surrealist By Gina Miller

Surrealism explored the unconscious, our dreams and challenged our own sense of reality all the while utilizing unexpected imagery. Originally André Breton was a major literary contributor but eventually it became inspiration for many renown artists such as Salvador Dali. Since the advent of Surrealism just before the 1920's it has continued to impact all realms of art, including poetry and music as well as paving the way for pop art in the 1950's.

More figuratively and personally, this animation is about allowing yourself the freedom to see the world through your own eyes, to not be afraid to express yourself - to be your beautiful, unique self.

And please read more about and comment on these animations at my blog here. I love hearing what you think!

If you want to download it without the wait (it will load immediately but will be of lesser size and quality than the above), click here see it at YouTube.

Tips for downloading internet movies: If you see only white, this is normal it means it's still downloading (even though you will see "done" in the lower corner of your screen, hang in there!) Also ~ if when you download the movie it appears "sticky" and/or the music breaks up, your movie is still buffering, play it a second time and it will have downloaded fully and play correctly.
