This was not a shoe-in for Perpetual Film Festival. On one hand, it falls into all the traps of what I personally don't like in movies - Moping about getting dumped and lamenting the plight of the artist. That said, Mr. Ng takes the mundane and makes it uniquely his with metered pacing and some creative animation techniques. This pacing is particularly a boon as it allows the audience time to really soak in the technique.
This isn't the first time he pulled off such a trick. For another example of the same skill being applied, check out his short Asthma Tech.
