Really cool stuff guys! ('other dutchmans ;) ) That moving-storyboard looks very interesting and stylish! The mood really drips out of it! There's just a certain excitement I notice! :scream:

Will you be doing this for school (so that you may work on it there?), or is it only that you know each other from the Academy? :) And btw: is the stuff you get teached on school really as cool as it seems? :twisted:

In every case; have tons of fun! :) I can't wait for updates!
