Congrats to the team at TNT for completing their short animation. So much work! But the results are great; fun characters too!

Such an achievement! I have been whining about working on a short for YEARS, so it is impressive knowing that they got together, set their minds to it and got it done!

Congrats! And keep it up!

Cool short! It remind me of the movie "shaolin soccer" :)

The only thing that bothered me was the numerous fades to black, i think it brakes the continuity of the narrative.

Anyway, good job :thumbsup:

Thanks shy-guy, picolo and wjh-mm!

shy-guy: you are so smart to point this out! honestly, that was a little tricky. we used those fades to black trying to make up for the shortness of the story. we knew we could have done it better, but we also knew that what we could do was to do our best given the circumstances, like time, human resources, equipments, and price, etc.

picolo and wjh-mm: glad that you like it! thanks!

Hope we can do a better job next time!

TNT has a great team with a group of talented people being experienced in different CG fields, music composing, and marketing as well.

Last August, we started PIPA BOY with a simple idea that is to make something fun and cool. We all love sports and think sports is the most popular entertainment in the world, so that we created a story about two boys playing soccer. But we wanted to add some fun, so we wanted the two boys played soccer with Chinese Kungfu. Then we started really working on this animation.

Please go to our portfolio to see some of the concept drawings of this animation.

Like all the other projects, it cannot be going without any difficulties and problems. But what we have learned from this work is that you just need to do what you want to, once you have started doing it and sticking on it, things would come to you helping you out. This is very true! Life is so unpredictable, what we can/need/should do is to really do what we want to. It's true that you never know what would happen ahead of the way. But if you don't do it, it's NO doubt that you can never get what you want.

So, if you have known what you want in your life, JUST DO IT! :)
