Life sure wears you down, but man must it be great when you fall so deep then you rise again.

I absolutely loved it.

However I can't really put my finger on what I loved so much. Perhaps, there was the message that as time passes by, even when you come across the same situations things might take a turn for the best; or perhaps an allegory on second chances in life. I can't say what it was, but I liked it so much.

Technically it was superb, fluid animation with spot on environments and angle of perspective.

Overall, you did a great job. Keep up the good work.

This started off as one of the most depressing things I've ever seen, and well... it ended happily.

This reminded me of screensavers that were big in the 90's. A constant loop of animation that altered as time went on.

The lighting at the beginning was a bit harsh, but I really loved the way the animation played out. It was like the little boat that could...

Proof that an animation doesn't have to have profuse dialogue or be crammed to bursting with action packed scenes. I love the cyclical storyline of the whole animation; it's sad and sweet and, overall, fantastically done. Were the "hills in the water" (for lack of a better term) 3D animation or 2D? I mean, was this whole piece a combination of 2D and 3D or was it all 2D? Because if it was just 2D, i also have to give you credit for amazing perspective changes. All in all, awesome work!

all those hills were made up of 3d movie clips. i think CS3 is the earliest version that has the feature?
