I really like the green flames, good start.

Yes, the flames are very good.

The green sphere looks a bit 'cartoony'. It would look fine in the original film, but might look out of place in a live action shot. I think that the look and the animation are just too 'clean'.

I do like the flames though....

First post here. We had some problems, a false start, technical problems, lost storyboards, rained out of a location, and an unfinished render. Jack was having some problems with the particles, and I didn't finish the edit. But none the less here it is -

"The Gift" - medium ( 5.9M sorenson
"The Gift" - large ( 10.6M sorenson

I'll have some more notes later.
