That was awesome!...

Great Job...Action Packed and very funny...

Only one crit though...when the cow is shooting at them, I would have loved to see some bullets actually coming out and hitting the ground right behind them...

Apart fromt that..I loved it...Goes straight to my site to be plugged...

5 Stars for you!!!

How long did it take? What software did you use?

Regards,

I really liked it, made me laugh from time to time. I was hoping for another kind of ending but this was fine too.

kind regards

ENL > Thanx ! I agree for the bullet and a lot of other little things. But we hadn't enough time... :D About 6 month of production (i mean without, storyboard and design...) using Maya and After Effect.

Fierras > Thanx a lot ! What kind of end did you expected ?

Very nice work, feels similar in some respects to pen pals (but is still distinctive), the animation had weight and was enjoyable, 6 months put to good use I think :).

In the beginning of the video I was like ''eehh?? what is this?'' but after a while I laughed so much!!! My favourite was.

- The ET joke
- The Dino sinking in the water
- The Microwave and them going pop! ROFL

The entire video was grand! Congratulations on your brilliance!

Thanx ! Thanx Thanx :)

Patrick05 > yes sometimes split screen were a bit hard to make understable. But It was an idear we really wanted to experiment.

Shuggie > what's pen pals ? It was also 6 months of great fun!

ENL > Thanx for the hosting ! I've seen you're also hosting the movie "Excalibur" from Francois Puren. He's a good friend of mine. We're from the same school !

fabianv > i'm happy you like the ET joke. It's not something i'm really proud of because many people doesn't see what's happening to ET and juste ask me after "Hey where is been past ET ?".

Dont worry.. a person with a bit of brains would spot ET anyway.. besides.. your poster hinted the joke.. the music hinted the joke.. everything worked GREAT!

I think it was awesome that you had to music slow down when the Dino jumped! :D

Man now I feel like watching it again! :bounce:

You've made my day

Man, this is just wonderful. I love that cow and the spaceship she gets in to. Would have been cool to see some ground hits when she is attacking the cave men. You know, some particles flying up from her strafing run. The Jurassic park refrence is pretty good though a bit of steal from ToyStory2, it worked. The E.T. momentes are great.

Very cool look as well. Sometimes I couldn't tell if it was a set or a 3d environment. Only problem is that it wasn't consistent. In other words, sometimes it looked so good and was lit so nicely I thought man that looks great...other times it was obviously cg. But super cool none the less.

Suprised they haven't plugged this, have they?

Great Job, Well executed.

I loved when they throw ET and I founded a nice idea that you do not see them blowing up in the Microwave, but just hear the sound.

The Cow is great as well, made me smile with the space ship!

No Problem...

I have seen many a great short getting lost in translation wether it be by bandwidth issues or it just being an old animation. So I decided to keep a couple of my most favorites on my site and have it serve as a mirror to people who need it while I get my modeling and animation up....(just got my copy of Maya 6.5 a couple of weeks ago...made the ugliest salt shaker in the world today...but i loved every minute of it cuz i made it myself...lol)

Best of luck to you...

P.S. I loved excalibur..once I saw it..I posted it on my site in about 30 minutes....lol

funny and enjoyable. Sadly something like this will probably be banned from TV where I come from because of the bird flipping and concepts. But, damn thats good.
