Very good but way, way too short...
6 September 2009 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is a film I wanted to love but could not. This is because although I liked what I saw, the film ended way too soon and this interfered with the narrative. So, it seems like the story was abruptly clipped and this left me feeling annoyed. Perhaps this film was a student project or they ran out of funds--either way, I wanted more! As for the animation, it was very, very unusual. The backgrounds were lovely and appeared to be computer generated. As far as the characters went, it looked like the face and hands of the characters were digitized from real people and animated by filling in the rest of the body. The effect, while not the most beautiful I have ever seen, is still very striking and you can't help but stop and say "wow". I would really, really love to know more about exactly how they did this and what sort of software was involved--it sure left me wonderin'.

Story-wise, I can't really comment. I liked what I saw but needed more.
