This 9-minute short animation, created by NicolÃ¡s Alvarado, is nicely done and one of the more watchable short films done in Blender. Despite the less than stellar graphic details, the storytelling pulls you through to the end. And well, that's what a film is supposed to do.

This short animation take me about one year to make, this is for my final year of post production study, in the cinematographic school of Chile, i learn most of blender in the making... i have to say, blender save my year! ... now i done, tomorrow I receive my graduate certification... thanks to all!
What really caught my attention was the camera angles, they were very good.
That's really impressive!
Is there a higher resolution of this video somewhere?
I'm at work so i watched it without sound - still impressive. The graphics could use a bit of work, but the cinematography was great. Very nice camera movements and composition. The credits were paticularly cool
well done !!!
Great film , good subject ..
That kind of production show what is possible with blender and gave ideas for the futur ..
thanks to you ...
One of the best Blender films I habe seen until now!
Especially camera and cutting are excellent.
The soundtrack could be more appropriate partially.
More foley would be of great help!
Of course the theme is very important and is packed
in an interesting storyline.
That scene in Toilet reminds me a bit Fahrenheit game;)
wow...EXCELLENT work....great...I bet that if you put this animation to some competitions one of the first prices is yours ;o). The story, camera....modelling.....more than great...really excellent story!!!!!!!!
this is great; the story, the way you make me understand everything, the sense of justice and the pity too, the music, the choices about the flas-backs,; the tecnical aspects are ok because everithing goes in the right way; no need of special effectes or of realism, the story is dramatical enough and also the comic-like aspect is perfest in order to generalize; i appreciate the fact that you prefer to tell everithing wothout easy pruderie; through the faces we can see the souls; for me is a great work, i think that blender is a simple tool, and in your hands it was useful to tell something; thank you for sharing!
Wow! Well done!
graphics need work, but you perfectly told this story.
Without a single word! Impressive!
Actual and excellent Plot!!!
Camera angels and cut very good!! Impressive work - the Story transported without one word!!
Thanks for sharing!
OK - at first I couldn't work it out, but by the end, the story made perfect sense! Very well done!
Congratulations! I am very impressed.
One Guy Army work!
Nice story man! Really good work! Thanks for sharing your work! You really know how to tell a story! Even without voices. Man, thanks a lot ;D
Really good! Best Blender work from 2007. If thats the case ;D
Nice work, i like it a lot.
Me fascinÃ³ tremendamente. Lo mejor de todo Â¡Soft Libre!!!!
Muy bueno, capta la atencion de principio a fin y la historia es revelada poco a poco, me gustÃ³ mucho, sigue asi!
Impressive work, thanks for sharing!
Wow! simply wow. The way it all builds up wow.
Hey, wonderful work! And many congratulations for your degree, too.
I only noticed that, when there are a lot of camera changes (e.g. in the sequence with the chorus in the church), it may become a little annoying those slight acceleration and deceleration of the camera at the beginning and end of each single shot.
In some of them shots it's okay because it lets you focus on a single item or person. But if heavily used it stresses the viewer a little; in some ausiliary shots, expecially when not zooming but just moving along a line, it'd be better to mantain constant velocity throughout the shot.
Anyway, just my 2c, it was very beautiful!
That was great! I like how you used almost all of the things to use in Blender
Very nice film, congratulations
I like the sweat on his face. The credits at the end are great.
NicolÃ¡s Alvarado, excelent work. Could you share a better quality version? :) for download directly.
I repeat. Excelend Work. :) great.
Wow!, thanks to all for your comments, soon as i can i gonna up a better quality of the short and some blends to share.
PD: maybe i will late to do that because im without a internet connection :S, but i will do ;)
I can only add my 'wow's to all the others.
You have a way of telling story that is really good.
I certainly hope that you can continue in your life,
making stories (maybe for yourself, maybe with others)
but keep on 'keeping on'.
Again, wow! And thanks for the opportunity to see your work.
