View Full Version : Animation:107.6 Degrees

04 April 2004, 04:26 AM

Hello everyone! My wife and I have just finished our first short entitled "107.6 Degrees". It's been a work in progress for a while now, but since we're graduating shortly we focused on finally finishing it. Thanks to all our friends and teachers for your help along the way. I hope you guys enjoy it.

!! Warning!!! The sizes vary around 50mb so be warned. The short is like 3 minutes long and when I try compressing the file down any more I lose too much quality so I hope you guys don't mind.

here's the links:

very nice, great character development, cute story, nice character interaction.

:thumbsup: what can I say

04 April 2004, 04:43 AM
I've seen a lot of this work in its process. and i am super stoked for the final result!!! these dang puhalas are really accomplished animators, and im really happy to know them. a definite inspiration!!! dang i gotta get drawing now!!! :beer: CHEERS!

04 April 2004, 04:56 AM
HAHA :thumbsup:

It made me lough. Verny nice! I especialy loved the szene where the little "thing" comes in in slow motion.

04 April 2004, 06:44 AM

Holy holy holy crap you guys!
Beautiful. Great staging, great characters, and wonderful animation! It may have taken you a while but it was well worth the wait.
That decides it. You can't stay in P town any longer. You've got to make a move to the Bay Area. After graduation you will have no end of interested employers. I'll get this sent to all the people I know down here.
I'd say I'm speechless but I'm obviously not.
You are both amazing.

I love you guys!

04 April 2004, 02:09 PM
oooh tubbyloo and mebamonster!
this is something I've been waiting for since the first glimpse you showed year(s) ago.

the colors are so nice, and the syle, and the characters, and the animation, and the music and.. everything is so full of character!

is this a parady on you 2 maybe? :D (I hope not ;) )

well worth the big DL for any skeptics.

(please remember me when you get famous :) )

04 April 2004, 04:18 PM
haha... excellent work. i laughed out loud when the little guy was jumping on the big guy... all 7 or 8 times i replayed it... :)

there was just a little bit in the beginning that seemed just a little slow, but that could be because i have the attention span of a small rodent right now. :)

FYI, you have a single black frame just after the one pulls the other one by the tail out from under the shade...

definately something for me to aspire to by the end of my college career. :)

04 April 2004, 05:02 PM
This is Front Page quality!!!!!

i loved it all, you guys rock!!!! Style is so good, characters are amazing, animation is superb!!!!

it was incredible!! loved every moment of it

04 April 2004, 05:06 PM
The Link doesn't seem to work??

or am i just losing it!!



04 April 2004, 05:16 PM
i think badwidth was met... ah man, and I'm really looking forward to seeing this.

04 April 2004, 05:45 PM
Wow thank you all, I'm so glad you like it! What did you do to my website though, it's down! :) I wanna respond to all your awesome comments but I'm scrambling to figure out how to fix this. Ok, hold tight, I'm going to see if I can find some friends to mirror this or something, not really sure how this works. If anyone is willing to help it would be appreciated, and there's a large hazelnut Mocha in it for you!. :shrug:

04 April 2004, 06:03 PM
Wow! What a wonderful response! Thank you for taking the time to look at our little short! Tubby and I are so very glad you liked it!
roguenroll: thanks!

brkofdon: We're so glad you liked it! Now get back to drawing darnit! You gotta post more of your great work for the rest of us to see!

Issaac: We're so glad it made you laugh! Thank you for the kind words!

Venge: You are always so good to us! Of course Tubby and I are up for moving anywhere once we graduate...and it'd be great to be near friends. We're so glad you liked our short.

fellah!!: Hey buddy it's great hearing from you! Glad you liked it! Hee hee no..this isn't a parody of us. If it were, there'd be a bunch of computer monitors and very little movement. J/k

uRiDiAN: Thank you for your comments, especially that darned black frame. Heh, I thought I saw something funny when I played it after exporting it...I'll have to find that pesky frame and get rid of it:)

SpiritWalker:Wow Thanks! There are so many wonderful comments I just don't know how to respond!:)

Manwich: Dude, I'm Tubby said...our website got murdered with the bombardment of downloads

leet: Sorry! We're trying to figure out a solution to the darned bandwith issue right now

04 April 2004, 06:27 PM
i'm gettin' a dead link here dude:sad:

04 April 2004, 06:49 PM
So, you decided to "go public" with it after all. Congratulations on finishing the short; you already know what I think of it (two thumbs up, and maybe even a couple of big toes as well!). You deserve all the praise given here so far, along with all the praise I'm sure you'll get after you get your link up and running again:thumbsup:


04 April 2004, 07:06 PM
really expect to see it:cry:

04 April 2004, 09:17 PM
Hey guys,

well done on producing such a polished short, I've watched it several times and it keeps getting better. I agree with earlier comments that the opening is a little slow, a few too many signs maybe, and the character designs take some getting used to, especially when you can see both eyes from the back of the head. But the animation is superb, and the strong colours are great. Top work :thumbsup:

As I was lucky enough to download while it was up I'll post a mirror to your file - my site won't last long though with a 50mb file being downloaded, so someone else will have to help out!

04 April 2004, 10:50 PM

That was sooo delightfully good. I love the characters, all of them... so inspiring.

I like the color choices and the animation is top notch.

04 April 2004, 11:08 PM
Beautiful short. I am very interested in the fact that the two of you worked on this together. I think thats great and I'm curious how it affected you both.

The characters are perfect in my opinion, i like the blue fella. The interaction between the purple (kangaroo-like) character and the blue one is the best and strongest part.

Great Job.

Here's another mirror to the DIVX version:

04 April 2004, 12:25 AM
ah yeah, finally finished!!! It turned out beautiful!!! Love it. I'd mirror for you guys but my bandwidth is used up at the moment (I think it's don's fault- the dirty rat!!!) I'm really glad you guys decided to post it.


04 April 2004, 01:05 AM
Thank you sooo much dgibson and mattmos for posting those mirror's I am very grateful for your kindness! We really appreciate you taking time and space to help us out, I owe you two coffee!!We're trying to fix this issue with our webhost and will hopefully have it resolved very soon.

dgibson, thank you for those kind words! It was a great experience working with my wife together on a project. We are used to being around each other all the time, we've worked at the same jobs in the past so we developed a relationship that makes it perfectto work on projects together because we don't get sick of each other and can understand each other really well. Most of the ideas and creativity stem from collaborating both of our visions together into one. We learned lot doing this short and we look forward to starting a new one in the near future.

leet, thank you! Im happy the colors we chose are getting comments, we tried to make it as "candy-like" as possible.

mattmos, wow, thanks, I'm stoked you liked it! Yeah, i agree the beginning is slower than the end. It seems like their interaction is the funnest pace, but without the beginning the story would be weaker i think. I think if I editied some of the shots tighter it wouldn't be so slow in the opening scenes, but I promised myself no more changes. :) Thank you for your suggestions and kind words! :)

Hey LF!!Yeah , we finally decided to post it! Thanks buddy for the kind words.

Hey fellah, hows it going buddy! Is it a parady?ouch! Actually, from sitting in front of the computer so much I do feel like the fat purple guy, and Amila is hyper and abusive! ahahaha, I'm gonna pay for that.

Heather you a sweetheart! Thanks fo rthe kind words and hopefully we'll be sipping sapphire tonics together in the near future!!

Thank you Issaac, uRiDiAN, SpiritWalker, thank you and I'm really happy at your responses. Its comments like yours that have made us feel like we have succeded in communicating our creative vision. :blush:

04 April 2004, 10:48 AM

i just think more people should see this wonderful short film.

04 April 2004, 08:19 PM
just wanted to reply again, i just watched it again, its just so cool, i kinda want to draw weird animals like that now! hehe. :wavey: ....(back to drawing)

04 April 2004, 09:11 PM
Hey guys

Looks great, no real comments other then that, i like how the fighting turned out, if i remember correctly you where still working on that scene a little.

congrats you two, now i just need to finish my super hero short.

Good luck to you both

Derek Bledsoe

04 April 2004, 12:01 AM
Thanks to the Art Institute of Portland, we now have a server that should be able to handle the bandwidth without a problem. YAY!!! Again, we'd like to thank Mattmos and dgibson for helping us out with mirrors.

SpiritWalker: thanks for the bump:)

Brkofdon: We're stoked you like it! I'd love to see you come up with some strange animals. Your drawing style is awesome and I bet you could come up with some awesome characters!

Bledsoed: Thanks for the vote of support. I really can't wait to see how your short comes out. The characters and world you guys created are begging to be shown off!

04 April 2004, 01:24 AM
Hey guys

if you want to see how the project is going i am posting my progress here at cgtalk, i already have some of the scenes animated, and by monday i should have more updated

The animation, thus far.

the thread:

best of luck to you both, and i will see you two around school.


04 April 2004, 05:01 PM
Brilliant work , you should both be very proud! I wish you luck with getting into festivals and such.... unless youre competing against my film. =)

04 April 2004, 06:20 PM
that looks amazing.. you should be very proud..
i love the fighting part too :applause:

04 April 2004, 02:27 AM
hey bledsoed, how ya doin!? We checked out your thread, boy your short is really coming along! I can't wait to see that project done, it really has a good story. Thanks for the comments !

Hey Chris, thanks man, I wish you luck too, let me know if you make it in or not!:)

Thanks tacit for the kind words! its weird but we feel a mixture of being proud and self concious!:beer:

04 April 2004, 04:19 PM
Woohoo! It's finished! :beer:

You guys rock. I know what you mean about feeling self-concious, but really, this turned out way too good to be self-concious about. I love the style of the characters and the world you created. And, of course, the animation and story are great. Congratulations to the both of you!

04 April 2004, 10:49 PM
Great great great. Man, those character designs. The camel is my favorite cos he blinks and it makes a wet slapping sound. awesome.
The first viewing, I didn't get that the kangaroo's shade tree had been eaten and thats the reason why he had to hunt for another, but no worries, it all made sense at the end.
Great fight scene.
Also, yay for Portland,

04 April 2004, 11:57 PM
So, I'm sitting at work and buddy beside me pops this badboy up frullscreen and starts watching it. I'm a bit snoopy so i start to watch it out of the corner my eye.. For like 1 second, then I shoved him over and had to get front row. So much style and apeal. Couldn't take my eyes off of it.

I love the style, and the animation is so fun to watch.

I especially liked how the blue dude was pushing off of the purples guys face. That cracked me up bigtime.
If i was to critique anything, it would be the story, and how they ended up fighting, instead of solving the matter a different way. Fighting is the easy way out. (just an overall observation of short films in general, and me nit picking)

So, you guys are going public instead of a film festival sweep?? :p
Entering any film festivals? You should. I woulda payed 5 bucks admission to see this with some other shorts.

Congradulations both of you.
And, I hope there is another short in the works from you guys. That would be awesome.

/Fanboy mode off.

04 April 2004, 08:26 AM
Hello squib, thanks buddy, its good to hear from you, I'm stoked you like it! thanks for the compliments :)

HenningK, thanks man! Yeah, we're pretty new at this short film thing and its strange how hard it is to gauge whether your explaining the story too much or not enough, i totally agree that i could squeeze in a full shot of him and the bare tree as he's sleeping under the sun. Yeah, that camel is one of my favorites too, such a pain to animate though!

Rudity, hows it going! hahaha, thanks man, thats awesome we're responsible for employee abuse! Hey thanks for the critique on the story dude, but coming from someone who just forcefully shoved their own workmate out of their seat I would have to say fighting feels good, wouldn't you agree?ahahahah, just kidding around, yeah, I thought about that for the longest time and I couldn't think of a way for them to resolve their situation without being too cheesy, but i totally agree with you. We were thinking about festivals but I'm still not sure. I'm not completely clear whether most festivals insist on the film not being shown to the public or if its only a select few. We're trying to decide on the festival thing, we're thinking about it, but aren't sure if we even stand a chance.Hearing you say you'd pay money to see this piece among other shorts really feels good man, thanks!:)

04 April 2004, 03:03 PM
Only some festivals require you to not show it online... You should definitely look into festival submission. I'm sure that your short would be at least screened if not win some awards. I was watching it in class and a bunch of people gathered around to check it out. It's good stuff!

04 April 2004, 08:33 PM
Great short.

I loved the styled look and the expressions of the characters. While I was watching it, I wasn't thinking of the technical merit of the piece, but rather I was consumed with the entertaining value of it.

I had a sudden urge to get up and get a glass of water. This would have been a great "Got Milk?" spot!

Good job!

04 April 2004, 06:35 AM
neonoodle: thanks for the comments and info. We may look into submitting to some festivals just to see if anything comes out of it. If not...well, at least we learned a lot in the process:) It's encouraging to hear that you and your classmates enjoyed it.

tallhonkey: hee hee. We're so glad you were entertained to the point of thirst. That's a really big compliment! Thanks! :thumbsup:

04 April 2004, 07:57 AM
Really funny, and well executed. :cool:


04 April 2004, 08:05 AM

I have watched your short, and it's really impressive. Nice story, nice heros, nice colors; funny music, well animated.
You deserve beeing on the frontpage!

04 April 2004, 08:36 AM
Congrats on the front page dudes! :beer:

04 April 2004, 09:30 AM
WOW, i really love it :applause: !

I visited your site a few weeks ago and watched all the movies, great stuff (especially "crazy glue" and "karma"). Your models are really original and lovable. It's good to see great character animation done with 3dsmax. Congratulations on the frontpage and hope to see more ! :thumbsup:

04 April 2004, 09:39 AM
wow that was fantastic guys , i love the animation , especially when the purple guy hits the other guy out of the way to get in the shade, well done guys! best of luck in your future endevours :) (aka more shorts like this one,,)

04 April 2004, 11:03 AM
great toon animation
and great visual style

perhaps you could tell how you achived the soft light and still make it animateable (rendertime) - especially when the gecko runs under these stones it looks so nice and soft lightened


04 April 2004, 11:43 AM
told u it was a front page for sure :thumbsup:

man the characters are just so good

good job again guys, i wish u luck in ur way and a happy marridge and may ur only fights be an animated ones. :buttrock:

04 April 2004, 12:05 PM
Whilst I have not seen any of the concept stuff I did see tubby's avatar in another thread a couple of days ago and thought what a cool character that little purple dude was... he just crys out to be animated! Low and behold 2 days later I see him again but this time he's plugged and it's a short! :thumbsup:

The animation was great as was the sound and music. The whole thing fitted together really well (IMHO). Congrates to both of you... what a team
! :)

I'm heading off to your website now...


04 April 2004, 12:51 PM

I like the characters !
Good work !

04 April 2004, 01:29 PM
I realy whant to see mor.
:bounce: :thumbsup:

04 April 2004, 02:09 PM
Hey tubby! Congratulations! It looks great. Everything is done well. I love the character designs and the style is great. I'm really excited for you. I know you've been working on this for a while and now you've got a great short as a reward. Serious congrates to you and your wife.

So, how does it feel to be done? :)

04 April 2004, 03:17 PM

This is a great short. and I'm glad to finally see it up there, getting the recognition it deserves. Great Job again guys!


04 April 2004, 03:49 PM
Good work:wavey:

04 April 2004, 04:08 PM
Whoohoo front page! Thank you m@, we're so stoked!

Frenkie, thank you, I'm really happy to hear all of your compliments. Thank you!

Hey mattmos, thank you again man, your too kind!:beer:

violet903, thank you! Hey thats cool you visited our site! yeah, we primarily use 3dsmax though there are projects done in Maya as well as Lightwave too. But I think 3dsmax is our most comfortable and favorite to work in.

rayfusion, thanks! Heh, that shot was one of the first shot i finished for the piece, I'm glad you like it! We can't wait to start the next short, we had so much fun making this piece and have learned so much that we can't wait to try it again!

mimo8, the short was rendered using GI to achieve that soft shadow look. Its by no means efficient in rendertime, I think some of the scenes took up to an hour a frame to render. Luckily we had access to multiple computers for rendering to compensate our lack of lighting knowledge. Thank you for the compliments!

SpiritWalker, you called it! thanks buddy, ahahaha, "may the only fighting be animated ones", that was well put! Again, thanks for the support!!

jbw, thank you! I'm really pleased you guys like how the music and sound fits, a friend of ours did the music and another friend did the sound, we hung out at night just collaborating ideas and drinking beer until it pieced together. Sound was one of the biggest obstacles, cuz it can ruin or enhance the visuals so drastically.Thanks again for all of you kind words, it means a lot.:)

PiPS,thank you!

Rogue! hows it going buddy! Thank you. It feels great to be done! We feel a great sense of relief thanks to all of you guys writing in and saying you like it. The biggest fear we had is that we would finish and everyone would think it sucked, thanks for all the encouraging words.:beer:

dgibson, whoohoo, thanks buddy, i really appreciate all your kind words and your help!:beer:

AHMED-3D, thank you!

04 April 2004, 04:11 PM
Great short! I like the charactere design , the animation, the simple texture, but the camera is a pain(not all the animation, but just at some part of it, little part :) ). You should check book about camera shot.

04 April 2004, 04:13 PM
I've never had such problems.
I downloaded movie but dunno how to run it. i have WMP6 divx and xvid but could U tell what codec it is made with?

04 April 2004, 04:27 PM
haha that was so great :) Hularious I loved it :)

Man, im studying computer animation.. and hoping to get married soon to someone very dear to me ... i hope my wife gives me ideas like this and we work together make stuff like this for kids :)

This was great :)

04 April 2004, 04:56 PM
I have only watched a small part of this and I am already impressed(takes a looooong time to load). Well done. Very nice music choice as well. Done in Max too, nice.:applause:

04 April 2004, 06:27 PM
hey emoor, I'm not sure what is going wrong. the divx version should open with divx or media player. all i can think of is that it didn't download correctly for you and maybe the file is corrupt, i'm not sure.:shrug:

04 April 2004, 06:31 PM
Wow, this is really nice. I like the charater designs alot.

04 April 2004, 07:10 PM
Like lemoor, it doesn't open at my pc! Darn, that's really bad. I wanna see your movie, man! The character looks cool, but my mediaplayer gives an error. Syas he doens't have enough filters to properly open the file or something.:cry: :cry:

04 April 2004, 07:26 PM
Wow I don't know how I missed this... It came out really really great. Great characters and obvoiusly amazing anaimation. Will you guys be starting another or are you gonna take a bit of a breather for a while? Really great!!!

04 April 2004, 07:30 PM
The short is very cool.......nice use of stretch.

You need the DIVX codec (

04 April 2004, 07:53 PM
I liked these characters when i first viewed your reels. It is great to finally see the finished product.

Very clean and fun.

Looking forward to seeing what is next from the both of you.

04 April 2004, 08:24 PM
We're not Worthy!:bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

04 April 2004, 09:12 PM
been checkin up on this, waiting for it to touch the front page. and low and behold it did! :applause:

..thats gotta feel GOOD!:bowdown:

04 April 2004, 11:40 PM
Downloading it right now. Seems from the comments to be a funny and cute short. Can't wait to see it!

(and oh yes, I'm gonna mirror it as soon as I download it.)

04 April 2004, 12:32 AM
Oh joy! Thank you all for your responses!

Pikmin: We're glad you enjoyed the characters and animation. It's interesting what you have to say about the camera shots. Was there something in particular that disturbed or jarred you?

lemoor: I'm sorry that the file is giving you issues. Did you download the divx or the mpeg version? Strange, but they should both play in WMP (so long as you have the updated divx codec which you can find at Hope that solves your problem.

gigatron: We're so glad you liked it! What school will you be studying at? Hope that goes well for you. Patrik and I have a great working dynamic that really feeds the creative process. We are extremely fortunate to be able to work so well together. I wish you the best with your schooling and your wife-to-be!

sk3d: Thank you! We had our friend, Dylan Larocco, play the music for us. He did an excellent job with taking our suggestions and really coming up with something that worked well with the short. Similarly, our sound designer, Roger Spring, really came through with inventing a fun and cartoony world for our characters to play in. We're sorry you had to wait for the download. It seems that the servers are really getting hit hard with all of this unusual attention. Not that I'm complaining though...

oxyg3n: Thank you! We did some rough concepting before we committed to this look. We're so glad that they seem to have the appeal we hoped they'd have.

Creamdog: I'm sorry that the file isn't playing.:( It's compressed with DIVX which you can download for free. Virum gave a link to the website you can get it from ( Otherwise, the smaller download is an mpeg file which should be able to play with Windows Media Player or Quicktime.

Adam: Hey buddy! We're glad you got to see it in its final form..and that you liked it. As far as another short goes, I definately feel another animation coming up...but I think we need to make it through this last term at school as well as start job we'll just have to see.

Virum: Thank you for your compliments and offer as well as offering the link to the divx site. Please check your pm:)

bentllama: Thanks for your compliments! We look forward to doing more animations as well.

DAbuel: LOL! That's crazy talk. Now you're just embarasing us hee hee.

brkofdon: Thanks again for your support:)

Autarkis: Thank you for offering the mirror! It's much appreciated. Hope our short is worth the wait. Thank you!

04 April 2004, 01:32 AM
and here it is:

Hope it helps.

04 April 2004, 01:55 AM
Hm, is the mpg version the whole thing? It quit right after the purple guy kicked the blue guy out from under the shade.

I love the characters.

04 April 2004, 01:55 AM
mebamonster & tubby

Great stuff, sort of Mortillo style, which I have always loved. Even with the compression the texturing is marvelous, along with timing and brilliant sound track.

Got the hook with the Kanga starting to sizzle on the second viewing when the short looped. Maybe in that scene you could let the camel head be seen to much off the leaves (or a bit of the head).

Took ages to download but I am glad I have it!:thumbsup:

Greetings Kanga

04 April 2004, 03:03 AM
:applause: :thumbsup:
nice work!!!!!

04 April 2004, 03:23 AM
My favorite pÔrt is when the blue fella bite the purple kangoroo's arm... its soo funny and the tail part used like a rubberband.. SWING ! :applause:

04 April 2004, 04:54 AM
Hey look at that! I take this to class, make everyone see it, and bam! FRONT PAGE. All I can say now is, About friggin' time!!!!!! Simply beautiful. Jeremy and I have watched it over and over agin. Congrats my beautiful friends. Ooooh, did you here that noise? That's opportunity knocking! Answer the door!!
Friggin' RAD.
You've earned that plane ticket.

04 April 2004, 05:19 AM
cool animation I liked It!!

04 April 2004, 08:53 AM
You guys are awesome!

Autarkis: Thank you! thank you! thank you! The mirror is much appreciated!

the sparky: sounds like you didn't get a complete download. There is a bit more to the story than what you saw. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Kanga: Thanks for the wonderful praise and suggestive critique. We hear what you're saying about that shot, but I don't think we'll be making any further changes to the animation at this time. Thank you for you valuable comments! Sorry for the slow download...

yangmiemie: thank you:)

???: Hee hee it's great hearing your favorite shots.

Venge: What's up chick-a-dee? Your enthusiasm is always contagious:) We can't wait to meet up with you and Jeremy again. It's been far too long.

TomerEp: Thank you:)

04 April 2004, 09:16 AM
Congratulations to you guys - very well done short film. The fight scene was very funny.

BTW, all who are hosting the animation should zip it up. I've managed to get it down to 50Mb, 7Mb less.

Might save your bandwidth a bit ;)

04 April 2004, 12:34 PM
thats a fantastic piece of work. i really love this "brave" colorchoice. i just watched 50 % yet, it is still loading. i`ll go back now and watch the whole thing. please keep it up :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

04 April 2004, 01:08 PM
mebamonster : Sorry I think I was to hard on my critic (sorry for my english). The camera shot with the lezard at the beginning is weird and the shot when the two charactere fight.

Just that, excellent short overall!!!

GJ guys. I look forward to future works.

I just downloaded from Dgibson's mirror @ 1050 KB/sec. Thanks Dgibson.

Thank you for making such a great animation .. and for posting it. I guess all have been said: Cute characters, wonderful original style, cool idea, very inspirering work etc.

You are fantastic lucky to be able to work on 3D as a couple .. I could not imagine a better way to work than to share it with on e an the same collegue / friend / partner.

I am just a but qurious - when you work on such a production, do you split up the work in say one does all the modelling, one does the texture work, one does the camerawork etc. .. or do you work side by side the whole way?

I hope for you that an employer can see the oppotunity of hirering two persons that already have proved that they work good together.

ghopper: Thanks for the suggestion. I'm sorry for the painfully slow download time. I'll mess with zipping it up when I get home and see if that will help any.

Protoplasma:Why thank you very much! We really wanted a candy-colored world.

Pikmin: What a relief to hear that is was just a few shots that bothered you. Thanks for the suggestions:)

e03179: Welcome to the forum! It's very kind of you to put your first post here. I agree with you, it's a life saver that people like Dgibson, Mattmos, Virum, and Autarkis are donating mirrors to us. They are awesome! Hey there. We're so glad that you enjoyed the animation! Patrik and I are definately fortunate to have the opportunity to work together. As far as production goes, it was cleanly split down the middle. We both developed the story, did concepting, storyboarding, modeling, texturing, animation, lighting, rendering, compositing, and editing with equal input into the creative direction of the film. I really couldn't have asked for a better partner in the process.
It's been a blast to work together and we really hope to be able to do so professionally as well...but with jobs as scarce as they seem to be, we'll be happy if either of us gets hired somewhere.

Well, thanks! It seems no one is taking an interest to the torrent unless I get some protests I'll take it down soon. :)

I have no use for my bandwith at the moment ;) I love the short film though.

I really hope that will get you a good job in a nice studio, and keep on making sweet animations like that. :applause:

I really enjoyed the characters, and the music you choose was perfect.

Cartoony style, great development. Big thumbs up from me.

Nah dude, wasn't complaining. I was just saying that since no one had tried the bit-torrent distributing it didn't matter. With so many mirrors popping up you didn't need it anyway. No offense was taken. :)

Oh....that's great..i love those characters!!so cute!!:bounce:
