See the future through a purple lens!
This is my entry for the Five Shades of Purple collaboration. I am submitting it on its own for a number of reasons:
1: We are going to have to use loadMovie to fit mine anyways
2: I finished extremely early and myname moved the deadline back to January since he broke his arm (and so did I)
3: I wanted to see how my work would do on its own

NOTE: The 5SOP is not coming out for quite a while, this is not a sign to expect it soon!
Time to make -- about 3 weeks, I guess. Very rough estimate
Time to RENDER animation - 96 hours and 43 minutes
Number of Polygons: Only 94360
Number of Frames: 2000
Framerate: 24

Woah. Cool effect- though I can't say a lot for the story.

So that's how M&Ms are made?

I don't know if it was my computer or what, but it seemed quite a bit like a slideshow with the lack of fluid movement. But, since that could be my puter, i'm not grading it any less for that. I liked the style, the super-shininess was very appealing, especially when close-up on objects.

orb responds:

Sorry about that, that's your computer. Try closing all other programs. If needed, get some more RAM

Really love the graphics, especially the way everything was extra shiny, music was great, not entirely sure what it was all about but i thought it was great

I must admit that I'm not too sure about whats going on, but the graphics are amazing. I liked the backing track as well. It looks like it took ages to produce, and if it either did or didn't, it still diserves all the plaudits it will collect.

orb responds:

Thanks a lot! Yes, it definately took a while.
