Your Face is a Saxophone is an animated series - a bizarro-surreal satire of the advertising industry, and the people who work in it because they couldn't find a job in what they actually went to art school for. Also, everyone has inanimate objects instead of heads for some reason.

We made a pilot episode with no budget in order to raise money for a whole season. Instead of pitching it to a TV network, we're pitching it to you. Yes, you.

Episode 2 is out now. Episode 3 is in production. Track our progress at YFIAS.com.

There is a worthwhile premise behind this video. The execution falls short. It's funny enough for 10-15 minutes of material, but it's been stretched to 25. Either things are drawn out unnecessarily, or the same joke is hammered over and over again as if the filmmaker doesn't trust his audience to catch on without a ponderous level of repetition.

The visual depictions of the characters is just bizarre. I was hoping that the 'product heads' or 'object heads' or whatever they are would be cleverly integrated into the stories. For example, the people could have been portrayed as not only marketing products, but creating identities for themselves which are essentially brands that they are marketing within the context of their own work environment. That's not what happened, Some of the symbols were obvious: a light bulb for an 'ideas man', empty suits for empty suits, a surf board for someone representing 'fun' lifestyle, and a phone for someone who mostly networks. Some were less obvious: a camera for a 'creative type' and a thumbtack for a accountant minded person, a cigarette for a neurotic, and a , a bottle opener for the 'partier'. Others had no obvious meaning. Overall it was just distracting. The same message could have been communicated with wardrobe and hairstyle. I think it was a sign of laziness both in terms of the animation and creatively in terms of the character design.

hmm i guess this speaks for itself:
Donate $4000

All of the above, plus we'll write an episode in which the characters repeatedly mention your product, brand, or business in a positive light, and are then promptly handed large amounts of money.

I have been falsely thinking this work is trying to get more attention on the false propaganda which advertising is creating. I was wrong, it supports it. haha. Too bad.

That donation option is a joke. We honestly don't expect anyone to use it.

However, IF someone does, first of all, we'd immediately refund it if it's not an organization we'd be comfortable about not hating on. Non-evil companies do exist, and we'd only actually accept anything resembling sponsorship from one of them. And second of all, the resulting moments in the show would just be another joke.

No, we don't support false propaganda advertising. There's far too much of it in our daily lives, and it often sends harmful and dangerous messages. But we're not opposed to the idea of ethical marketing. We're not looking to abolish all marketing, we just think it should be safe, legal, and rare. Like abortions.

Writing: AWESOME

Animation: OH Hell's bells, so much motion blur. I think it would've looked a bit better if it was made on Flash, not on Maya.

Yeah, we're gonna turn down the motion blur for the next episodes. Although, some shots were rendered with more than others due to the combination of time pressure and Zacqary being a derp. It'll suck less in the future, we promise.

Also, we used Motion, not Maya. Flash can't do the 3D stuff we need.

I love it. Truly hope more episodes get made and released.

We're getting ready to produce Episodes 2 and 3, hopefully for a release by the end of the summer. We'll be bloggerating the process at Plankhead.com.

Well not bad, better than nothing. But it doesn't show the true evil of propaganda called "marketing". like Bill Hicks would probably agree with me. Too shallow, but not bad.
