View Full Version : My new ShortFilm

10 October 2002, 05:04 PM
people, i yet finished my short film called The Wrong Landing. It's about a martian and his wife, landing on earth. It's a 3d film with real footage as backgrounds. All filmed with a Cannon XL1 MiniDV, at the National Park of Las Caņadas del Teide, in Canary Islands, Spain. You can download the file at

I wait for your feedback... :wavey:

huh, well i really like the anamation, it seems really smooth and timing seemed quite good too.

but i think there is a problem with your audio...... it seemed to really lag behind bad, and wasn't qued with the rest of the anamation at all.

i do like it, and looks very pro..... the voices i like too, but maybe in terms of clairity you might want the aliens to speak just english rather than sub-title your whole anamation?? it seemed trying to read the sub headings and listening to them speak was too distracting from the animation.
might have more impact on the viewer.

but good job non the less, everything really fit well with your real footage, it rocks

I couldn't download the file it was always 300 odd bytes long!? I might try again later, just letting you know in case there is a problem with it.

hehe, you can get it at

my opinion:

First of all, I dont mind the subtitles at all (but thats maybe because im used to them)

Secondly, the sound is indeed not in sync with the movie at all :(

Other points:
The movie looks very professional, cool models and great animations(!), funny story. Too bad there are some frames missing at the end and the quality is a bit low

Thanks quinox I was able to get it from there. Excellent work on the animation Deepray, excellent compositing, modelling and character animation. The sound didn't appear out of sync to me!?

Great little story and very well executed, it was a pleasure to watch.

:applause: I find you your comic film, the assembly is well made, just textures of the aliens which shocks me a little bit! And the end is a little too fast, damage! on the other hand Teide Volcano... hum... que of good memories, I lived 5 years in Tenerife (Callao Salvaje and Playa de Las Americas!!!)

Adios hombre :wavey:

ok, thanks for all guys, but is true. due the high demand that the movie has generated, a saturation in the CubicAllMinds server has been produced. I open a mirror site at

when the movie can be downloaded.

again Thanks for all guys, specially for all the people from, , ,, and others sites for promote my movie... ;)

1000 Donwloads in a week? Man, gotta love the net. Great way to get exposier (sp?).

I'm downloading it right now. But I haven't got a chance to view it yet (lousy dial-up). I'll post back later when I've finished downloading it and have had a chance to view it. Can't wait.

10 October 2002, 02:30 PM

10 October 2002, 06:18 AM
And well guys, i want to question one thing... it's a good idea if i take the same characters for made another short, or is better if i make a new characters for a new history?. :lightbulb

10 October 2002, 07:22 AM
wow nice stuff!! love the landing scene!! the sound is good for me. yeah i would say make something completly different for your next short :D gj i cant wait to see your next short :D

10 October 2002, 07:24 PM
Sorry but can't find that video :) am I dumb ?
By the way, wouldn't it be better for us to be able to see some shots of it ? Just to see the overall quality, style etc.

Personally I would go for new characters and a new sequence. Although it means creating everything from scratch. I think completly new would be more satisfying in the end (as long as you pull it again)

Good luck

wow, the language sounds so "real", did u invent it all? hehe

Very nice animation! :applause:

10 October 2002, 05:54 PM
Ok guys, sorry, but close my account, and i moved to

for the divX version, and for the mpg version,

still working... ;)

Yeah infernis, the language it's all original, and i take this option becouse the short has a "spanish" version too, and, for take less work, i do all the subtitles, in spanish and english. No dubbing, no double work to sync the mouth.... :)

10 October 2002, 04:45 AM
well, has been closed my account too... :P sorry for the inconvenience... but pocketmovies still working...


11 November 2002, 12:20 AM
