This was done by a second year student?!
29 October 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

SEBASTIAN'S VOODOO is a very simple story that is told in a short film of only about four minutes duration. A large group of voodoo dolls are being used and the dolls seem to feel this pain! And, in an attempt to help one of the other suffering dolls, our small stuffed hero resorts to fighting the human by giving him a taste of his own medicine.

The animation quality is superb with the dolls and backgrounds. The human, while well done, isn't quite as lovely but it doesn't really impact the film. With no dialog, the story is still very captivating and well executed.

This is a great example of how remarkable software and computers have become in recent years. The animation quality of this project by a second year student is amazingly beautiful and shows how much CGI has improved in recent years. However, at the same time, despite advances you still need to admire Joaquin Baldwin for his exceptional work in directing, producing and writing this short film. If this is what this guy can do now, imagine what he'll be doing in the future when he's REALLY good!! Great stuff and I really look forward to seeing more of Mr. Baldwin's work.
