Traumatic AND cool!
11 August 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I think it's amazing how as the years pass, people are able to do more and more with CGI than ever before. Now, a small group of people can make a film that looks amazingly professional and is very watchable. However, I still must give a lot of credit to Dony Permedi because although such projects are now possible, it still takes a lot of work and manages to be funny as well.

The film consists of a computer generated kiwi. He's pretty simple in design but very effective. Through much of the film, he's pulling on a rope and doing things that make no sense to the viewer. However, in the end you understand and can laugh at what is occurring--but at the same time be filled with a sense of dread! This is proof that comedy, unfortunately, usually is pretty violent and cruel.

Overall, a great little film that is clever, well done and manages to pack an amazing amount of stuff into its very short length. I really hope to see more from Dony, as this shows great skill and intelligence.
