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.

Very cool, you portrayed the atmosphere of the facility very well. Abandoned, yet you still expect something to pop up from behind every corner. It reminds me a lot of a manga I once read, called 'Blame!', you should read it, might help you with ideas for your upcoming shorts?

Audio was well chosen, and enriched the atmosphere, and as for animation, like others already mentioned, you might want to work on the running animation.

Just one last thing, it didn't feel like the character was 'exploring' so much, it was more like he knew exactly where he was going. Maybe add a couple of scenes in which he stares in awe/wonder at his surroundings and asks himself what everything was for. Him, walking and looking around would help a lot as well. Definitely as he is, as you say, exploring this (i assume unknown to him) facility.

TL;DR:

Anyways, very cool! Atmosphere sent shivers down my spine, so keep it up!

I wish we could see more stuff like this on Newgrounds. I love the amount of detail you put into the reflections and shadows. Plus a legit looking Spaz-12? Fuck yeah! You win ALL the stars!

While this entry is not without some merit - you just filled 3:23 minutes with NOTHING. You can't expect people to be interested in an anonymous sack of polygons rnning through a sterile environment.
I know it's just a prologue - but with a first impression like that there's no way I'm interested in whatever comes next.
