The two main characters are on a journey in the folds of a giant Machine, exploring the twisted and dark complex of wires, gears and cogs. Until one moment a conflict arises that throws out all their assumptions. This movie short couples lively fun with passionate characters in an epic story line.Written by

Emo, why? Emo... why? Why can't you see the beauty of this place? The-the way it works? How... how perfect it is?
No, Proog. I don't see. I don't see because there's nothing there. And why should I trust my life to something that isn't there?

Having been a user of Blender for a few years, I couldn't wait to see this film. Having recruited the most talented users this was to be Blenders big promotional push to the rest of the cg industry, the expectation was high for something special.
The result is a very mixed affair. Technically this is amazing, very few users have been able to squeeze this kind of performance from the best open source 3d package. Modeling, lighting, texturing, animation, rendering all are very high quality. This brings me onto the obvious and often heard criticism: the story is almost buried under it's own multi-layered highbrow pretentious Art wannabe hopes.
Sadly what should have been accessible and inviting, ironically,instead reflects Blenders UI: unappealing and awkward.
As a film it's a failure, as a HD-DVD tech demo(first in Europe*yawn*) it's great.
