Who said beautiful animation has to be high budget with fancy effects?

Lovely, really beautiful. The song really fit it, too, but it had an unexpectedly sad ending.

I`m 90% sure that this was rotoscoped. In the credits you see people listed as "dancers".
IAB changed the caption that I submitted.
All I wanted to get across is that animation can be so much more beautiful and simple than all these 3D graphics that have become so popular in movies.
And what I mean by "simple" is that it`s 2D, there`s no camera movement, and no colour.

See I didn`t get that he "left" her. I interpreted that the two were soul mates, but haven`t met each other yet. Notice how when they came together she became the real one while he became a "ghost" of sorts. She cried because they came so close to finding each other but missed their chance again.

"This video was truly awe inspiring... once I turned the sound off. Really, why is it that only horrible bands get good videos lately?!"

There was nothing wrong with the song.

The only thing I hate more than interpretive dance is animated interpretive dance. Thanks for helping me discover that, I-A-B!

This was absolutely wonderful. Beautifully done.

briirox may be correct though... I suspect rotoscoping. Doesn`t make it any less amazing though.

Tragic, but it was beautiful, like ballet mixed with martial arts.

Ugh, corny romantic crap. While minimalistic, I wouldn`t say this is low-fidelity. The amount of actual animation involved is clearly very high.

Awesome animation. Title fail. Misuse of both "intricate" and "lo-fi."
