Very nifty. I like it overall, though I'm not sure I understood it all. I know the story of it probably isn't that important considering its purpose, but just as a crit, I got lost especially towards the end when the woman appeared. The shaders and the effects were all really nice. The animation on the gold man seemed to reserved/stiff occasionally, but it overall was pretty sweet so nice work everybody! Gotta love anything with giant monsters!

thank you.

the original final scene was a bit more obvious i think, at least it showed that there is some kind of a "good" relationship between both characters through some facial acting in a close-up. she was opening her eyes, after relieved from the stone, looking pleasantly surprised at the hero and finally smiling at him. but zotac didn't really like it so we dumped it in a last minute change and came up with another more neutral and distant alternate ending.

Congratulations on the interesting project.
Im gonna be honest with you, it kinda looks like a demonstration for a 3d software from the 80's.
I couldnt make out if there was a story there, the camera movement was abit too much, felt like you wanted to experiment with hand held camera.
In general the overall thing was too messy for me, too dark, too shaky and with designs and color scheme that kicked me back 30 years.

Im sorry if the comments are too harsh but thats how I felt watching your piece.

i really appreciate honest comments and opinions. i have learned that tastes are very different in the many aspects of CGI so i don't take anything personally. thank you. :)
