This is a 3D animated short film prologue I spent 9 months working on, it was made in Autodesk Maya and rendered using Pixar's Renderman. The film is about a mysterious character who explores the dark depths of a giant abandoned facility. The purpose of this instalment is to create an atmosphere and establish the environment. It acts as a prologue to a whole series of upcoming shorts films about the character's journey through the facility; this is just the first phase of the story.

I thought that the stroy was a good start, and the designs was great. However, the movement animations needed some cleaning up. Overall it looks awesome though.

This is definitly going to be a good series, the atmosphere was very eerie to say the least. Also the guy looked kind of like Isaac Clarke from the first Dead Space. Other than that my only criticism is the running at the beginning, it seemed too long to me. Still, great use of animation, environment, music, and the suspense at the end.

If you have played ICO for the PS2, you may know what I mean when I say that the atmosphere is very similar to that. And ICO is a phenomenal game. The atmos you've created here is spot-on and I'm really looking forward to further episodes. To answer Nicholas below me, I agree about the running animation; that could definitely improved. The elevator sequence, however, I actually thought worked quite well. Anyway, grats on this film, has real potential.

I really liked the video, I can see that you put a lot of efford in this. I'm not trying to critic here, but tu help you improve, but I will point some things that I think are not perfect to my humble eye.
- The way the caracter runs: I can see when he is running that the feets are not "sticking" to the floor like they should be. I mean, when you run or walk, you put all your weigth on your feet and they stay there till you lift them. In your animation, the caracter's feet slide fowards before he lift them. You can fix this easily but slowing down it's horizontal move when he runs.
- Cam problem: In the scene where the caracter is going down on the elevator, the camera moves weirdly. I mean, you animate a movement and then another, for example, spining round something and then panning left. What I think you are doing not completly rigth, is the transition between this animations, it's like it stops for a frame and then change into the next animation. The animations are really good, how you move it it's really fluid and goes really well with the scene.
- Model of the caracter: The pants of the caracter looks like he poop on his pants. he has a aweful line there.

Pros:

- You made a really good job with the envorment, with something really simple, you made something really cool! Good Job!
- The music is really nice and goes well with the movie
- I like the way to made every scene, it gives it some mistireous that I like

Good work! Jope to see more of this story comming soon :D
