I would have to say that Kiel Figgins piece feels very much like an actual shot of the film, and I like that a lot. Great work.

My vote goe to the Figgins piece in all respects

One last note I really like the matte work done by that guy Christian, whatever his name is. It add the touch so that this looks like it set in the Tron world with the subtle pulses of lights from the buildings.

Kiel Figgins that could easily be in the movie! I had to watch it four times. Sound, design, concept, animation - everything was there in perfect form. The sound of the discs as they made contact with the glass/floor was spot on along with the blasts - really immersive from the start.

There were great TRON elements with all the entries, and I loved the retro look and cute concept of Grant's piece too. :)

Tron Guy just made me laugh, short but sweet and totally out of the ordinary :)

Liking particles, the TeamDirk Derez was sweet got my vote, was a tough decision as TeamKiels Disk Battle was super tight, great camera/action/fx.

Garrick wow, put some time in on it, quite a spot, looks are clean and consistent, nice job! Great Short and Wip Thread (some great stills in there)

Cheers all, great stuff :)
