  1. This is excellent. Well done. I'm working on a black and white short film myself and it's great to see that others are trying out the B&W concept in 3d too!

  2. That movie is great. It seems better with music instead of sound.
    I liked it. I wish I had the time or skills to make something like that.

  3. Your work looks brilliant & im probably gonna get moaned at here for bein in the wrong place but please please can someone answer this for me-is there any way I can add material/colour only to Selected Areas instead of the whole object?
