Hi!

First of all, you you shore covered a lot of scene... good for you!

Sugestions... i think it could use more contrast (the 2nd frame of your last update)... there's a lot of blue in that scene. You could make the human costume black and the dolphin's chest white.

Looking forward to see more!

Hey mate,

It's looking good! Definitely has that sci-fi movie trailer feel :D

The wide variety of characters and environments is also impressive!

Just a suggestion...first thing that popped out to me was the grammar of the first line of text. It should probably read "In The Future"...because in English "In Future" doesn't make much sense :) (I realize English isn't your first language though)

Hey man,

Congrats on finishing! The final trailer has a great look to it...like it represents a really epic film...especially with all of the different environments you set up and the multitude of shots. I especially liked the little robotic devices that the dolphins were using to walk on land.

Best of luck!

Hello!
This is it!!

The playlist is

1 SHORT TRAILER
2 MAKING OF
3 FULL TRAILER

I wanted to keep up to story written in the book. It's a fantastic world I imagined as full of colours so I wanted to make my movies very expressive both in visual and emotional matters
I used XSI for modeling and later max and AE for animation and editing.
I hope you like it and you'd like to see a feature movie some day in the future
It was a great pleasure to participate in this one
Thank you for support and advice wish you all the best
and CHEERS!
