  • Over There
    Over There Full length clay animation from Dustball and gel!

Author Comments

During the summer of 2000 we created a 20 minute clay animation called Over There. In its original form, it never saw the light of day. 5 years later, we've re-written several scenes, re-recorded the sound, cut out 4 minutes and added an original musical score! It will be submitted in a handful of segments due to the length and file size. Here's a little taste of what's to come!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


ignore all the 0's, im lazy, anyway this looks awesome, im glad to see some claymation with real quality animation, and other effects, and it looks to be quite funny as well. good job and im awaiting the final product. A good idea for you-host the full movie somewhere on one of your servers and have it available as a download. that way, people who want to view the movie in all its glory, as full length film, could do so.

This puts the "otentia" in "potential"

Excuse the terrible pun...

It is rare that any clay movie (Save for, of course, Knox's works) pass through those dagger-tipped gates we know as "The Portal". This one, however, had something that a lot of other clay flicks don't have; evidence of EFFORT. Your average portal manure clay flick runs about 30 seconds and features two unarticulate globs beating the shit out of each other on someone's coffee table. That's what gives the whole genre a bad rap, imo; people who don't give a shit.

This movie actually looks interesting! I could tell just from the small clip that the story is at least somewhat intruiging! The charecters all moved with an impressive level of subtlety! I really got a kick out of the purple spiky guy's ability to smooth out the dents in his flesh! And, yes- there were even some FUNNY PARTS!

It's these things that set this one apart! Yes, there could have been more sound effects and yes - just like every other clay flick it takes place in someone's den - but the level of effort that obviously went into this makes me excited to see more!

Great going, can't wait to see the finished product!

Not bad at all!

This movie is great.
The animation wasn't bad neither, I liked it.
I particularly liked the part with the air plane made of cards, it looked real.
The clay figures were well made, I immediatly recognised them from dustball's movies.
I also liked the fight between the bad guy and the "hero, the music was funny and the animation was cool.
Can't wait untill you finish the second version, "Over There".

Graphics: 9. Good use of clay. Quite detailed, and looks good. Good job on that.

Style: Well... Rescuing the princess isn't the most original plot in the world, anyways, I gave 6.

Sound: 10! Excelent. I adored the music and liked the sound effects.
Awsome work, Dustball!

Violence: 10, I noticed his arm, (pencil and then cigar) got ripped off! I think it's just because you didn't manage to stick the pencil right :P

Interactivity: 1, replay & play button ; ).

Humour: 6, quite funny.

8. I liked this movie very much, even though his arm was weird.
Excelent work!
Good luck with the second version.
