Got it. Understood. For the record, I did not mean to diminish how you felt.
I hate it when people do that to me, my apologies if it came accross that way. I can see how what I wrote could suggest that.
I just wanted to toss in an opinion for the other side. I get so tired of directors/clients avoiding brash and bright colour that I found this a breath of fresh air. I am willing to bet that there were loud voices working hard to dissuade the client from requesting a palette this saturated -- it is so nice for once to see someone take a chance like this.
Similarly, I was really getting annoyed by everyone complaining about the use of lens flares and colour in the last Star Trek movie as well. I get it, but it was nice to see the director have the balls to actually do something so garish that it actually turned into an aesthetic that was terrific BECAUSE it was so surprisingly garish and ballsy. I thought it worked very well for that Trek interpretation.
Of course, if everyone starts doing it, it will turn to cheeze immediately.

Great job on the animation/lighting. Story felt weak, but it is what it is. Colors look better when you're not watching it compressed on youtube. The sparkling snow looks great.
I also saw it in our theatre, and the 3D didn't feel as dimensional as it could have been. JACO, did you notice this too? Or maybe it was just me.

What role did Ridley Scott play in all this? He's listed as a Producer. Didn't he have an option to direct? :P

Regarding the colours, yes, the palette was strong and bold, BUT it was a short meant for 2k, full depth, stereo projection.
That means that the luminosity and all are calibrated against the classic dimming you get from polarisation offsets.
When you take just one eye, clamp the depth, then convert it through youtube and watch it on a normal LCD monitor it looks NOTHING like the original projection it was meant for
I'm not making excuses for somthing, it's not my work to begin with, but I'm more than a little bit surprised when even some film experienced people comment on wash-out from a youtube encode
The stereo I thought was good actually, but yes, very tame. Having seen some snow heavy shots with a more aggressive stereo though I can see why it went that way, that much white and sparkles with a narrower interocular and more aggresive window use can easily become eyebleeding.
I have no idea to what extent Scott was involved, but producer doesn't necessarily mean much in itself. I don't think Scott has any particular inclination to direct animation to begin with, and that short was worked on around the time of family trouble first, and the suicide of his brother later. I seriously doubt at the time he would have felt much like directing ANYTHING

thanks JacO for posting this and it looks so beautiful and people still comments for the full movie but its a commercial.
beautiful bear, nice fur, cool water effects everything is so perfect.

Wow... It is really hard to impress some people.
Anyhow, I thought it was exceptionally well done. Light, happy, fun, and exceedingly beautiful. You took a predominantly white landscape, filled with white creatures, and made it all pop with brilliant lighting.
No complaints from me at all.
