This is a 3D short made during my college years.
It may not be pure flash but I can tell you that the animatic story-boarding, 3d computer interfaces and credits are animated with the help of flash.


Bounty hunter Kyu is on a mission to capture her next target, the fugitive LenZ. She is lucky enough to find him on her next train ride. LenZ tries to escape from her, but dodging her attacks creates instability to the train and endangers both their lives.

Brilliant! I'd give a full score for it's overall impressiveness but there are some point that could be improved that I'll mention to keep the review grounded :)

I'll begin by saying the overall piece was very well done. How many people worked on it? what were your tasks specifically? the scope and feel of the animation was very well pulled of, cinematography felt fluid and smooth, and the whole thing was enjoyable and entertaining.

If there are a few small points that could be improved, I think adding a more gritty feel to your textures and a more contrasting approach to lighting would bring the whole thing out a lot more, it felt slightly flatter in some places like the train station. Bringing out the ambient occlusion to let the light and shadow bounce off of the objects themselves instead of seemingly relying on just the environment lighting. Your use of bump/specular mapping was good but it felt a little too 'shiny' in some places, perhaps lowering the specular refractions and working more on the way the light falls into shadow instead of highlights. The train station is the best example of the application of what I'm talking about.

These are just some things I think could bring it out, but those aside the whole thing was great, It, and you, are now on my favorites as I very much look forward to seeing what you come up with in the future!

Thx for the pointers, I'll totally get better next time ^^ It's just me doing everything but the music lol


Five mutha's outta five. And a fav.

OMG 10 starts out of 5!!! AMAZING WORK
THE lighting, the shadows, the coloring, the movements, the music, the story line, the detail, even the character interaction are all amazing.
I simply loved all of it, each scene was extremely well done.
Looking forward to part 2 of this!!

simply amazing, the detail, the lighting and sound, you are a true talent. Bravo

Brilliant! Beautifully created and animated. At first I thought it was going to be rough at the opening scene in the subway station, but that completely changed when you focused on the girl. I was surprised and waited to see what limits it had. Once she boarded the train and the title screen came up and then the lighting of the passing lights, this blew me away. I just couldn't believe how well this was done. The reflections in the glass was amazing and quite realistic.

My only quibble with the movie was the running. While smooth and fluid, it seems restrained. It felt like what I have seen in my own dreams when trying to run to or from something. It feels heavy and slow, you know there is power behind each push, but no matter how much you try, you just can't seem go faster.

But that aside, you have some serious talent and I really hope to see more of your works here. And I certainly hope your thinking of making a sequel (or continuation) of this movie. And I for one would love to know what you are using to make this and are you doing it from a lab or from home?

And once again, Brilliant! Just brilliant!
