SamipeReally nice, from beginner to pro animation this fits somewhere in the middle.
Animation was in most places good. Somewhere it was a bit stiff. In the beginning on top of the mountain, his knife didn’t sink to the snow? Also his hand relying on the knife doesn’t look really relaxed.
Nice job, I couldn’t ever do something like this…
That it was suposed to be more Ice than snow, if you look carefuly, you see that the distance between rock and ice it’s almost none Sure you can, you just need 2 years to make it
It feels as if a drama director is trying to make a Hong Kong Action Film.
If you need some inspiration for how to pace a fight choreography, I would suggest you watch some of Jackie Chan’s Movies. Specifically when he fights againts multiple opponents.
Some worthy Titles (By no means a exhaustive List):
Police Story 2 (Play Ground Fight especially), Project A, Project B, Operation Condor, Pedicab Driver.
I’m a great fan of Tony Jaa and Jackie chan (the ones you point are also may favourites, I would add Rumble in the Bronkx ) I could made the film like Hong-kong, but i planed to do exactly what you wrote, I couldn’t have put it better
tarkata14Great animation, modeling, and texturing, but I didn’t understand the story. Also, the voices could use some work.
This is a little alternative story telling I think it depends one life esperiences to understand it
pixel master rogper, you did a great job with this movie. How did you find the animation toolset in blender. Were you satisfied or did you wish it had certain features. Again, concerning the film, I thought it looked very good. Professional work.
I’m Very satisfied with most of Blender features, I’ve used 3dsmax and I prefer Blender for everything. The animation tools are excelente, combining NLA Action Editor and Ipo Curve editor I can animate anything:yes:
HippieOnly things I didn’t like were the music and the voice acting for the Angel of death.
I also planed this, It’s not the voice you expected from a Angel of Death, hehe but I was trying to say that they are in fact normal persons, that after dying is given the choice of Becoming Angels:p
my only crit is the characters frequently completely stop moving for several seconds
how long did it take to make and render?
5 months of rendering, more week less week :spin:
linuxpimp21I liked it. You have a good sense of style. The quality of the animation is great too. I like a lot of the things you did with the camera. My favorite part was when the angel threw the boy off the platform. I didn’t care for having the text written on the screen. I think if you could have visually told why the boy was dying i think that would have been better then having him say he was. Maybe have a flash back of him getting hurt somehow. I dunno. If you could have explained the Angels job visually too I think that would have been better as well. I don’t know how you could have done that tho in a short like this. I’d love to see a making of or something of the sort for this. Like how you got the quality you did and how you achieved the fighting moves.
I needed to keep the thing arround 10 minutes, and I like to give space for people imagine their one stories inside my story
fudjeMostly pretty good. Character design looks good, I like the concept, and your environments are very nice.
I think the language could have been better, as some lines didn’t make sense until I’d tried them out a few times with slightly different language – the meaning was conveyed, but not well. Mostly, I think you needed some more editing on the script from a native English speaker.
I thought make it portuguese, but because i knew that you guys would be my main audience I made it English, try to reed the in betweens
Squiggly_P The animation in this is spectacular, especially the fighting bits when their tossing each other around, and the part where the kid lands on the windmill especially. The sound is pretty well done. The textures are fantastic. The only crit that I would have would be the dialogue and voice work. Some of the lines are sort of clumsy, but I’m guessing English isn’t your first language.
All in all this is just fantastic work, and you should be proud. It’s extremely hard to get animation of this quality and length finished, and that alone is worth a great deal of admiration and respect. Kudos.
It seems that it wasn’t good enough for a certain portuguese filme festival
But I’m very pleased with it :yes:
Falcron I didn’t finish watching, but did you use the cloth simulator on the SVN?
Man!!! That meens it was boring to you
No, most of the cloth shots are from 2006, it’s a softbodie.
bigbadThat’s some intense animation going on here. For some reason the whole thing reminded me of sonic the hedgehog. The sound and voices could be better but that doesn’t matter.
5 stars for the animation.
Sonic was my first Hero, and still is today. I’m trully glad that shows in my work
anubis_dog3 I liked it
The death angel’s english was a little weird, and I didn’t understand why he was dying, but it was well done none the
Terminal deseace :evilgrin:
gr8! Suggestion: The Angel without the hood felt a bit… (well empty?) I would suggest (though it’s too late for suggestions) that you could create some kind of a black ‘flame’ aura coming out of his head. (I think it would look cool…)
Congratulations man! Gr8 Idea+ Gr8 Execution= Success!
To the Headline News please!
Think in it like a peace of cloth that they have on the head that works like a black hole
lllstrikesmemb2 hi i really think you did an awesome job with the ANIMATION

it was a little weird
but it was entertaining and thats what matters
Happy for that
Thanks everyone for this great Critics, Keep it coming Please
Ho!!! The Making Of is in Blenderart magazine issue 14
