I've said it before and i'll say it again, those kids at axis make some sweet cg.. a very talented bunch. :)

They did a really good job. The best character is the father, the daughter is less real than the others imho.

i just love this short from top to bottom - exceptional work! plus: houdini's »one-for-all« approach of doing things seems to be superior to other packages which often seem to be incomplete clusters of different and among themselves incompatible approaches...

Very good article, I like how they went quite in-depth about the technical side, some very useful information to derive some workflow changes from.

nice idea, but I think the animation is really really bad, imho
