I just loved the story! and great animation! Awsome job!
If it isn't much trouble, could you link the downloadable version please?

This is a great animation.

I have some Minor issues, with the skin shading, and a bit about the girl animation,
BUT overall is it a fine piece of animation.

I want to see this animation, but it needs a mirror, badly.

10-24-2007, 07:57 PM
Really love the story...and the movement of the dandelion is really great!

Any chance of a youtube or something similar? The mirrors are crawling atm, stage6 insists on installing software I dont want and I'm itching to take a look at this ;)

I've managed to see it via a mirror now. It's a sweet simple little piece. The only crit from me is to agree that the facial animation on the girl could be better.
I like its style; the lighting, texturing and designs are all great!

10-25-2007, 04:36 PM
Beautifull realisation. simple and poetic.
you have talent to tell a story with style.


10-25-2007, 05:54 PM
I got another mirror up, waiting for Jackie to 'officially' post the link :)

Posted :)

10-25-2007, 08:54 PM

10-25-2007, 08:59 PM
Thanks! I've fixed it.:) now is working!

10-25-2007, 09:04 PM
Excellent screen play and concept dude.... I really loved it.. And the music dragged us somewhere... its really nice. I wish I could see some more of ur works later...

Gud luck...

10-25-2007, 09:16 PM
Well.... lets just say I was'nt a happy camper before I sat down and watched this now I can't remember why I was so crankey for....... Great animation, concept, and story line.... excellent work and a very touching animation indeed. Bravo. 5*

10-25-2007, 10:26 PM
Entertaining piece, I can see why it won an award. Good Job.

10-26-2007, 06:15 AM
good job! good story also! :thumbsup:

10-26-2007, 10:58 AM
Very sweet and endearing. It got me all teary-eyed towards the end. The animation wasn't overly ambitious but on the other hand it wasn't boring to watch; you exectued everything within your set limitations (see 'style') and all in all it's a great piece of work!


10-26-2007, 07:32 PM
cool story :thumbsup: good job!

10-28-2007, 09:55 AM
Wow! I like your concept. Story is simple but so power. Good Job.

10-28-2007, 08:23 PM
Beautiful story, but...Are these eyebrows?!?!? In my humble opinion they are way too distractive, I was thinking "god, are these eyebrows?" each time the grandpa was on screen. Maybe they are common thing in asia,LOL!! don't know...anyway, just a minor, minor thing, overall great story and animation.:thumbsup:

The greatest thing about your shortfilm is that when you have a great story you almost forget the 3D. It is a fine and touching story.

Great work.

10-29-2007, 03:33 AM
Thanks for all commends and crits!! I really appreciate it!

My original idea of sharing this film here was just hoping there will be more people watching this piece. But now, I feel I am full of energy and ready for my next film! I'll keep learning, making and sharing my film here with everyone in the future! Thanks guys! Really appreciate!:)
