Hi!

First of all, my heart beats so fast now, it feels like I am gonna die after I post my reel up to CGtalk. Ok! Let me introduce myself, I am May (as you can see it on my title of this post),
I am female (obviously), and... ok. I should be serious!

May, graduating from VFS coming April. I am Malaysian-Chinese. This is my first animated
film, and it is about a Baby Thief stealing golden milk bottle in one of the Toy buildings in Toy City. All visual elements by Me.

I personally like animating, and i like modelling too. It reminds me that my schooling time, my classmates keep saying to me "May!! stop modeling!!"

The idea of this short film, it is just from my imagination. I like babies alot.
I collect babies' photos, and so. That's why, I think of making a short about a young kid.

I know my reel doesnt show much animation. Thats why, I am planning to
add some little animation such as, lifting and lipsycn.

PS: The SFX is not complete yet, the school's sound desgn department is working
on right now. Sorry for the SFX which is offset and so. And Special thanks
to Rob Wood, our school video editor, he compose the music for me.

Lastly, I would say millions of sorry for my broken english I have used here.
And please enjoy my short film, and kindly leave your comments and critiques.
Suggestions are welcome too.

Thank you so much for reading this. Have a nice day! YEAH!

Abdullah, its so surprise to see you here. Thank you so much for supporting always,
guide me and tell me what should I do next when I am in a confusing situation.
It is so hard to say it to you personally. Thank you again for everything.

Cliff, thank you so much again. Malaysian rocks! I have seen your work last term.
that girl model is too much sexy, and you are making me diet now.

I liked the overall atmosphere and style you used.. The only point of critique would be with the music which didn't really fit with the story and animation.

Anyway, Good job and congratulations on finishing your short! Good luck in the future...

Alom, i am.... so glad that you like my work. But still, I think I can do better, I am gonna work harder! :) I think I did not show alot animation. :(
And I like the Mood too.. It's like in a Baby Dream Land.. so soft feeling..

Richard, ahhh, no way! you work as intern in the Ant Bully Film..
I saw some of your work. I like the "spindle.mov" the most!
It is just...... soo.... cute. I would like to do something like that.. :D
I do not know how to compose music, and I am not too good in picking the right music.
So, my school video editor offer me, and try to compose a better music..
to me, it doesnt sounds so bad, It is not the best, but it is better than the previous
music I've used. :D anyway, thank you for telling me that too..

Hello May,

I liked the style of your piece, nice rendering. VFS students always do well so good luck on graduation and the job search. I'm graduating as well this spring so I know how nerve-racking things must be for you. Congrats.

Bernie, You must come for the grad. If not, I will fly to Austria and kidnap you to grad.
hohohoohoh. :D

Kristofferic, Not all the VFS student are good. For example, Me.
Look around. I saw lots of VFS grad has good reel. But, mine is not.
I think I did the wrong thing in the first place, that was thinking to animate
and small and fat character. It has the limitation for pose.
Either the IK pop, or it crash badly (arms & legs).
I have seen your reel. It was a very good piece, I do not know what to reply.
Cos, I dont know what to comment on. Because, It is great to me.
And, I look at my reel again. "Man, when can I animate like them? they are so good."
No mater how, lets keep learning and trying. I believe I day I can animate
as good as you. :D Or, maybe you willing to be my teacher for awhile? :D

Hello again, babies are tough to animate that's for sure. I think your schools network of people will get you into something. Just keep animating. What are you planning to animate next? As for myself Iím going to be working on some dialogue animations and some hyper realistic animations (hopefully). Goodluck!
