Illusions (part one)

Really intriguing concept from Animal on the subject of Illusions.  Now I have always had an affection toward the weird and unexplained, so a video on illusions was right up my alley to begin with.  The first thing that stood out to me about this piece was the voice over.  It fits so well.  I love how it sounds like it's from archival footage.  I also enjoy the mixture of found and animated footage.  However, what I found best about this piece is that it could have ended half way through and achieved what I thought it was going to, but then it goes into a much deeper and unexpected place in the second half that I honestly got a few chills.  Well written and I'm looking forward to the following 7 films.
