I'm almost done with a short film I've been working on for about a year and a half. I thought it would be fun to edit together a preview. It wasn't that fun, but here it is. :) It's only in Divx for now, the newest one, version 5.0.2 I think. I couldn't figure out how to make an mpeg and I can't get quicktime working :thumbsdow but I'll try again.

Software used:
Lightwave 5.6
Messiah 1.5 (The plugin)
Shave and a Haircut

I'd apreciate any critiques. Here's the link...

It's around 7 megs and 40 seconds long. The full movie is only about 4 and 1/2 minutes.

Here's a couple stills if you are nervous about a 7 meg download.

Has anyone downloaded this? I'm wondering if the download and file work. I always post stuff that people can't see for some reason and I don't realize it.

gonna have to remember to d/l this when i get back to my computer! If it's half as cool as those claymation movies you did way back in the day, it'll be awesome I'm sure!:)

That was well worth the download. Very creepy. I especially liked the movement of the centipede guy. How long are you planning on the final film being?

Thanks. The film is pretty much done, and it's only 4 and a half minutes :rolleyes: I'm still working on the sound, and the guy doing the music is just about done too. I've still got 1 shot to finish and render, and 1 to fix up, but that's it :)

Thanks for looking.
