  1. Some nice sets and cell shading. It would really help a lot if the audio didn't cut off so abruptly when each shot changes (especially the way the music seemed to cut out for no reason).

    I'm also wondering if this is this meant to be part of a larger story, because as it stands the story just seems to be "some guys shoot at some guys and get blown up by a helicopter." which as a standalone film seems a bit creepy in it's gratuitousness.

    Anyway, a lot of work obviously went into it, and it has some nice touches from the smoke behind the vehicles and the sets. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I like the strip cartoon style of rendering - reminds me of the 'Commando' comics that used to be available when I was a kid. But does the camera have to pan on almost every shot? I think it would build suspense better if the empty street shots, while the guys wait for the attack, were all completely still to convey the idea of waiting for something. Then the camera would burst into movement only when the action starts.

  3. I love the cartoon look. The film is as if it is a documentary short speech and no main character but a set of individuals to protect their interests, I love it. By cons, I think the 4:3 ratio is not appropriate now everyone make 16:9 movie and give more documentary style and would cost no more expensive rendering. A change in plans much would fix the pace of the film, which is in the choice of making an animated film is to put cameras everywhere without moving crews.

    Finally, I commend the work of the director, making a film animation itself is very hard for a lot of work to do. I believe there is great potential in Rajiv Jayant, I just encourage them to continue that work.

    P.S. I would love to see a breakdown of labor.
