This is pretty nice where are you a student at.

I was a one year (the course is only one) student at noroff institute in norway, although i would'n recomend it :)

but we had roughly 4 weeks to complete the animation from scratch, so theres alot of things i would have done differently
if i had the time.

if anyone should wonder i used max5.1 and particle flow

The animation is a bit rough around the edges, and I feel that the character should have been reacting more to the blocks, starting to get scared as he is gradually trapped.

Having said that, very nice background lighting/texturing, the music is a good choice, and sound effects work well. Nice story!

Looks almost like he was made of pyrite and very well done. I loved it, the lighting was great.

I really like your camera work more than anything else....but I am going to have to say that the character animation is your weakest point. (although this had a very clay stop-motion feel to it which was cool)

I like the look and lighting of everything as well.

great job on your character animation as well as add more of a twist to the ending and you have something REALLY impressive.

Thanks for all your kind words.

mattmos : thanks. I was hoping to show abit more emotion
with the character when he is trapped, but 'ill be working on
that too next time.

KendoJedi : allthough it might look like pyrite :) it's acctually 10 000 cubes :)

Robert Ashley : glad to see you liked it, and thanks for the critique, i know character animation isnt my strong side, so i'll be sure to work on it alot more in my next animation. But on this
project the animation was done in the last two weeks :)
