In this video, studio Wasaru took Orwell’s Animal Farm and adapted it to a contemporary political and economical situation. We see pigs in police gear facing an animal riot of exploited industrial workers.


Pigs are the enemy, but, just like governments in our world, they are not the real head of the society. In fact behind everything there is a man who seems to be omnipotent, who symbolize all the corporations and big interests that control our world.


Technically speaking, the video is done in a very pleasant way. The vintage-movie effect gives it a flavour that reminds me of Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times. The animation are simple but effective, there are no crazy special effects but everything is fluid and works well in its context.


Characters are well defined too: pigs look really evil and dirty and other animals look miserable while our “Big Brother” looks like a greedy businessman who stands in a dark mysterious room where all we can see is the table with the model representing the animal city.


Summing up this is a great video, it talks about serious themes of our times without resulting superficial or obvious and it does it with an original style and an interesting visual vocabulary.
