At first I didn't know what was happening. I thought the nails were merely pulling the hammer upright, perhaps a dissenting faction of nails rescuing the hammer from captivity? What they're doing would be clearer if the nail being pulled were more conspicuous.

Very good! Wondering how you'll provide closure at the end: what happens to the hammer? It might slide off into the background while the nails gather and celebrate, or they could hang it up in the workshop alongside other tools, or . . . ?

Well the hammer has been domesticated (or brought under control of the nails) (like people taking control of their government back) and is used to help instead of harm.

Ultimately I think the hammer needs to be melted down, with the handel as fuel, to be poured into molds to make new nails. Circle of life. But that seems like a digital project and not an film one.

Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.

Like all "art" these pics are open to you interpretation and enjoyment/uneasyness regardless of the makers intent.
