Hey Everyone!

I just wanted to share with you my recently completed short film, "Les Dangereux". It's been a long 9 months and it's finally into the world. I hope you like it!

It's a fun little ride as we follow a vacationing ninja develop a crush on another ninja - and the consequences of a hasty introduction.

You can see the film at its own website:
Or at its source on Vimeo:

Story, Development, Animation, Shading, Lighting, Compositing, Modeling, and Direction by Daniel Klug
Environment Artist: Vicki Shively
Additional Props: Brett Stuart
Music performance: Alexa Sage
Music Editing: Marc Jackson of Moonlab Studios
Sound Effects: David Guerrero
Character Rigs:

Done with Maya 2009, MentalRay, and AfterEffects.
Total time to completion: 9 months.

I start AnimationMentor back in March of 2008. This is the culmination of everything I have learned (animation-wise) from that point on. All other CG has been learned from my time of employment at New Wave Entertainment (5 years).

I am now seeking new employment opportunities. ;-)

Let's start this New Year off RIGHT!

Top notch work me Bucko, simply fantastic to see the final product :D

WOW!! RedForty... this is most excellent. It's very reminiscent of the Matrix! Good action, good animation, great lighting. I love the weight of the characters and love the chemistry between them. This is top notch animation and deserves an ancore. Perhaps soon we'll see you on a Pixar or Dreamworks rolling credit? Good job. I can't wait to see... Les Dangereux Deux!!

Congrats on finishing it!

I loved it! I laughed out loud at the end, and that's saying something, as I rarely actually laugh out loud when I'm watching something alone. Really well done!

Wow that was great. Really entertaining. Fast paced and packed with fighting stuff :cool:.
