cool to finally see how it will look! :slight_smile:
i wish there was one more eye on the crab in the intro scene visible, i had problems figuring out what it was for a while.


Hi anders.
Yes shells are supposed to be money. At the start I wanted to made the slow motion longer to show us the sell falling into the bag. But I didn’t had the time (I go back to professionnal work), and I was not sure about camera move. I treid to make some piles like you can see on the previous post (with render) but it seems that I would need t make it smaller to have more. I’m not sure my computer will love that…
I’ll see what time left allow me to do. Thanks for comment.

Mdavid, daddymack, melkao, hiun… : thanks


very nice animation, it has a cool sequence…but maybe…i don;t know, just a though…changing the shot when he shows the lobster, to get a bigger surprise!..perhaps, first shot from his back and he aim the other character(we don’t see the lobster), then a front shot and camera bounces with zoom(now we see the lobster)…i don’t know if i am clear…but anyway, is just an idea.:twisted:

Melkao : That’s not a bad idea. Sadly I have no time for change now, My spare time is now very rare and the rendering times are very long. So I just try to finish. I don’t have to forgot I have also an still picture to do.

A long time ago, crustaceous city was a very urban city, with many citizens. It was one of the more dynamic city of the country. But a terrible invasion came from the sea and all the citizen had to run away.
Nowadays most of the invaders have leave the city too. There’s still one citizen, a Banker who keeped the strange behaviors learning from the past.
But how would he react if one of the most famous bandit from the west open his bank’s door armed with his lobster gun ?

This final version has no music because I wasn’t sure about the authorization to use it. So to see the short with music and better compression (that’s HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) , you can download it at (right click - save as): . It’s a 45mo file.

For those who just want the music but with a bad compression to have a lower file (19mo). Download it here ((right click - save as) :

I want to thanks everybody who supports me and whish good luck to all the participants of this great challenge.
