Loved it. It was even better at the premiere. This one is my favorite out of all the entries.
good work, truly good work! its a simple and yet very entertaining story. Beautiful animations man!
I absolutely loved it.
very polished, like everyone else said your animation is amazing, especially considering the higer frame rate. Is it 24 fps?
Loved it, smooth sleek and witty.
That was top notch
As I said in The River thread, this film is tied for being my favorite STAR film (of the ones I've seen at least).
I love how you were able to take a somewhat complex plot idea and make it into such a fun and understandable comedy film. The animation had a nice cartoony feel to it, and the voice acting and writing was superb and hilarious (especially the robots). Pretty much everything in this film was top-notch quality, the animation, set design, etc. Loved the headbanging.
Excellent job, I think you'll do quite well in the contest.
I don't like to say this, but I think you've won. Oh, well.

Impressive technical aspects + witty dialog. Still, the film as a whole was a bit disappointing. It all seemed to rush by in a big flash of color - not really any plot buildup, which left me blinking at the story. It ended, I knew what happened, but while watching it was never thinking, "Ooh - I wonder what will happen next."
Another great film. How do you make them bob their heads?
I don't like to say this, but I think you've won.
I have already won and the prize was finishing this film. How it places in the BIM competition really doesn't bother me if the majority of people enjoyed it.
Still, the film as a whole was a bit disappointing.
Sorry to disapoint you Leonardo I did my very best.
Ooops I forgot to include the link for the Set Photos.
I thought someone would ask how I managed to get technics pieces moving smoothly on green studded base plates, the first picture should answer that. The lazer printout was used to align the pieces to form the logo and then I just slid the paper out of the way.
The head banging involved some masking. I took a background shot
Then all the animated frames of the head was composed onto the background in photoshop.
In fact there was a lot of work in photoshop to put all this together. The shark has a transparent layer of water over it's body but it's dorsal fin and tail are opaque. The best example of masking is the skate boarders accident. I actually shot every frame twice. Once with just the background and again with the fig on bricks. I then used the background frame to mask out the green bricks.
I love the ending, with the apple, time forward, time backward, etc, you can see everything that happened that single moment! Great done!
