This is really great! You've done a great job modeling the interiour! I also like your textures, maybe you could have been a little more dramatic with the light? The animation has both good and sometimes weaker points, but you manage to tell the story well, and that's not easy. I like the cartoony style of her running. Especially when she runs for the chair!

This is very strange behavior, and funny!

And what an ending!! He he.

Maybe one day, I'll actually understand how to do that

Thanks Evengi and Ferx for your comments... kind words! . And thanks to everyone else who dropped me a line before. It was great piece of encouragement. Im sorry I had not time to visit all galleries/reply some WIP... I barely managed to finish this on time, before things gone crazy in my everyday job due to the very intense part of the year.

Evengi thanks for your keen observation. We seem to have the same attitude regarding my work done here! I also think that the story is fairly good interpreted, and i spent much of time on scenery. You well noticed ups and downs in animation part! Light is not best part of it, what bothers me a little - it could be more moody with more quality there...

And Ferx mrehehe flying Jordan! I had a different idea in my head, but now when you say it, I say OK .

May ittention was to have Matrix/Kung fu sequence there: combining "high elegancy" of Matrix, and crude shots from B production KungFu movies

Best luck, all!

I am astonished. I dont' have words about the animation. When the hen breaks the egg... the matrix style... the explosion... the camera movement... The dinamic of the short movie it is brilliant. The velocity of the actions. Good, very good. And the making of... with a lot of detail... Great, great. Very good job.

Nice work my friend, turned out really well.

Hey guys, Fruela, Trickz, Vikram and Alvin! Thanks for your exceedingly kind comments!
Your support was really precious thing during the creation process. Somehow it is easier when you have a public who encourages you, as well as you do to them. I guess we all came out with greater experience from this competition.

I am satisfied by establishing contacts here at CGSociety in such manner. Also, it is a good way to learn about other people workflow. I mean: all the stuff that motivate us to work and compete, all things that prevent us to work as we might (work, obligations of many kinds). Excitement, enduraance, sleeples hours in the night .

So, after this few lines of poetry, let me inform you, if I can, that I am going to submit my movie also on domestic/international and highly esteemed animated movies festival here in Zagreb. I am recommending it to you too, it is free to submit. Read more about it here (there is english version too). I would love to see your work also on big screen, here in my town!
