Arrow E.T.A. by JUNK - Animated Short


After nearly 4 odd years of on/off spare time production, our short film E.T.A. is *finally* done.

1280x532 - Matroska mkv h264, 75mb: Best quality. Will play in VLC without any extra codecs.

1280x532 - Quicktime h264, 80mb:

640x266 - Quicktime h264, 40mb:


Vimeo: Higher resolution streaming.

The whole setup of the film was the brainchild of Søren (Trenox) Andersen, which we collectively selected to be JUNKs first short film (ending up being our third...).
The process of working on this massive project has been quite an overwhelming learning experience. Not least in terms of the importance of setting specific goals early on and respecting your own deadlines...

The core JUNK team consisted of Søren (Trenox) Andersen, Michael (DFeKT) La-Cour, Rasmus Kudahl Kaae Munch and Henrik Bjerregaard Clausen (me).
Søren and Michael did modelling + character animation, Rasmus handled the score and most of the sound effects while I directed the film and did the lighting and compositing.
We used 3ds max, After Effects and Photoshop.

I would also like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of those who have lent us a hand when we needed it and never gave up on us, regardless of how endlessly this production seemingly stretched. Thank you!!

We hope you will enjoy watching the film half as much as we've enjoyed making it!

OMG!!...I just love this! I'm a huge fan of Ridley Scott and his style and the instant I began to listen to the score and seeing the cinematography ..I saw Ridley and ALIEN written all over it. This is great work! I know there is a lot to say about the texturing, color and the animation and what not; but the score, story, visual style and cinematography really do it for me. Excelent work and hope to see more great work from you in the future!

I know you've put a lot of hard work into this, and I really enjoyed watching it on the big screen at Breakpoint this year. There's really not anything in there that could be done much better - superb work, nothing but love from me ^_^
Should be on the front page!

it was really nice and refreshing.
really managed to create a nice mood to go with the theme.
and the way u handled that alien cliche was damn smart.

Great stuff. I loved the whole look of the piece and the gag worked a treat. The shear ammount of work gone into it is self evident especially in the details.

This is incredibly well done, and better than some of the "live-action" shorts I see. Very nice attention paid to lighting here. This is coming from a non-cg guy btw.

And I smiled when I saw the Weyland/Yutani Corp text on the monitor. Great touch.

Awesome job guys. I'm a fan.
