An interesting piece of work.. though If you want to get a message out there, I would avoid using manipulative music. If i'm on the fence about an issue and I watch an opinionated video on that issue which contains music that tries to force you to feel something, It will only drive me to side with the opposition.
The animation was simple but good and I agree with the message too. Art is a special service in that few people can do it (most people don't have any artistic talent) there for it is worth more and good artists should be paid a much higher rate than people who perform common services such as Cashiers or Waiters (jobs that anyone can perform). Too many people fail to realize this.
Although I realist the main character had to accept the offer in order for you to make the rest of your points, in my opinion the fact that he accepts what seems to be a shitty offer makes him harder to sympathies with.
While i don't find this to be moving or powerful like others do, I do find it to be a good little animated film. 3.5 stars
