Dictoven

STATUS: COMPLETE

Director, Writer, Animator

In a delusional world, a dictator stands anxiously waiting the arrival of his grand instrument. He waits patiently as his army stands at attention, and his guards stare at the distance. The moment comes when the piano arrives to the stage, revealing its massive size. The dictator hops on the chair and starts playing his musical masterpiece. The rumbling of the piano signals the ending of the delusional world and the revealing of the real one. The dictator stares at the new scene in shock. In denial still, he wants things to go back to the way they were. He orders his soldiers and guards to fix it the only way he knows how, brute force.
