MEET MELINE : The Trailer of the 3D Animated Short-Film ! :)

That's it! Finally, the first moving pictures! The trailer of "Meet Meline" is online ! :p

After two years of intense work on an independent 3D animated short film called "Meet Meline", Virginie and I made the teaser/trailer to show you a little bit more of the short film. We're proud to present you the 46-seconds-video with the official music of "Meet Meline", composed by Guillaume ROUSSEL!

That exterior opening shot is amazing. Great lighting! I cant wait to see more. :bowdown:5 stars!

I remember seeing this a looong time ago as well. I'm glad it didn't just get put "on hold" like so many personal projects do.

The animation looks nice (from the little shown). Great model on the girl, lovely face you've chosen, very appealing.

We are happy ! :o)

The amount of people who watched and commented on just the trailer was beyond our wishes! There were too many connections on www.meetmeline.com (http://www.meetmeline.com/) that I had to disable the direct download of the AVI, MOV, and WMV. I though it would be enough with the mirrors on YOUTUBE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHx_E8KctdU) and VIMEO (http://www.vimeo.com/3872070), but it wasn't! :p

In just one week the trailer has be downloaded more than 40.000 times! So yes, just in case you didn't know: we are really happy! :o)
It has been well received. Many people put it on their blog! (Don’t hesitate to do the same! :p) We had some pretty amazing comments from all over the world!
It also got us 2 press interviews on news papers that are being read by 200.000 times a day! We'll tell you more about it when it's published!

So thanks everyone for your time! :)

Hello everyone!

Two week after the release of the trailer we had some amazing feedbacks and life around "Meet Meline"! :p

A lots of people put the trailer on their websites, blogs, facebook and twitter pages! :D
A friends pointed me to a free web traffic metric website called alexa.com. There's a list for the "TOP 1.000.000 WEBSITES" and guess what?... meetmeline.com was on it, ranked 977.792 to be precise! I don't know when and how that was calculated or if that's even reliable... be still, meetmeline.com is on a list! :)

We also got some feedback from the press! We answered 3 interviews for newspapers, and even had a filmed interview! This is not CNN!, but that's very pleasing! We'll show you all of them as soon as they are published! :)

We also many others things going on around Meline, and some contacts but we can't tell you about it right now! :p

So THANKS EVERYONE for making such an amazing life around "Meet Meline" ! :love:
