View Full Version : The Order Electrus: Animated Nature Documentary

08 August 2005, 10:53 AM
Hi everybody,

I made an animated nature documentary, about the life of electronical insects. They live in old industrial locations. It's a combination of video-backgrounds with integrated/animated insects. I used Maya, After Effects and Photoshop.

Have fun, and watch the whole movie!!
Please listen to the sound also

Floris Kaayk,

Hi there,

Well...there were some issues with the animation throughout...but overall I thought this was great! A really cool idea combined with professional execution overall made this a really enjoyable short :)

The animation has some small problems here and there, like the part where the gear spider jumps off and pounces its prey and so on. Overall, this documentary was cool, way cool. Now I know what the narrator meant by new species of flora and fauna. :D Nevertheless, this animation should earn you some popularity stars.

Very nice indeed!

You did a wonderful job of creating the feel of real doco's. Very inventive!

Art :thumbsup:

Now that's the sort of Doco I can get into :)

Great concept!

Who did the voice over?

Sure - good idea and realisation...
May be introduction not so long?
But in "science" concept it's look good.

That was great...I really enjoyed it! I was also wondering who did the terrific voiceover.

Thanks for the positive reactions and the critics. I know, that the animations is a little crappy on some moments. I made this short within 5 months, so I wasn't able to make it perfect overall. For me the idea was more important then a perfect animated movie.
In my next movie i'm will try to make a perfect animeted movie :-)

The voice-over is done by Tony Maples, he is a professional actor and got a lot of experience with documentaries. He did it for a friendly price.

Thanks again,

Floris Kaayk
