With a great deal of trepidation I post this little project. Not only did the video’s background music get pegged with a copyright infringement claim (results pending!) but I’ve never before attempted to “animate” a stick figure drawing and this is also the introduction of a rather… problematic stick figure character.
Vincent’s not the good guy. Or funny or amusing. Or a cute character by any stretch. His actions (as I depict here) are a result of his serious mental illness and intent to commit kidnapping and murder. However, inspired as I am, as we all have been, by Alex O’Loughlin’s amazing portrayal of this incredibly broken and tragic man, Vincent Rowlings, I present my little contribution:
The musical composition “Tears & Rain” is owned by EMI Music Publishing and presented here under Fair Use only, no profit made by me, and presented here non-competitively with the original work.
If you suspect that you, or someone you know, is suffering from mental illness, anything from depression to OCD to social anxiety, please refer to your physician or to trusted resources like the National Institute of Mental Health for guidance.
Also, please watch the video right away, because in a month it might be gone (and my YouTube account suspended) but we’ll cross these bridges when we get to them. In a completely sane manner, of course.
