I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

    Amazing work. Love the style. The composition of each individual scene is so well thought out, as well as the sound design, often a weak point with either hallow voice recordings, or poor music choices. The only thing I would add is a warning for those with epilepsy, on the hole scene ;) another high point of the short.

    • Fantastic piece of work, from the shaders and lighting to the character design, all beautiful to look at. Plus a solid story and well told. I would agree with the epilepsy warning though, my online editor radar was ringing alarm bells :) Well done on getting this under your belt, hope to see more.
