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 definitely agree with CarterGlass. The gun I didn't notice, but the leg movement was weird and kind of took away from the piece because it bothered me so much. Not a lot of people have a gap between their legs when they walk. They should be a little closer together. But, this reminds me of an RP I used to be a part of online. It was in space and the technology I imagined is all there. The music was awesome. Good job. And I'd like a series of this. :)

good clean animation although slenderman was creepy enough without a space suite

This movie was really good and suspenseful. I think that if you made a series of this, it would be very good and you could probably do a lot with the storyline. I did notice a couple things that you need to work on though.
1). The character was holding his gun weird. He was kind of holding his arms out straight, with one of them diagnal. It would look better if he had his arms up against his chest holding the gun. Even if you know what someone looks like holding a gun, I think it would help you if you looked at a picture of someone holiding a rifle or any other gun like that and modeling your character after that.
2). When your character was running, his legs moved strangely. They went up like they would if he was sitting down in a chair, and that didn't look right. It would have looked better if the leg that was not touching the ground was bent backwards, or even if they both moved forward diagnally.
I know I was being a little picky there, but overall it was a really good movie, and I give you five stars. Good luck on the rest of the series!

I have a couple questions for the upcoming shorts will there be more than one character will there be narration and will it start off like the prologue or will it be the character going into the facility? Overall it was a very well done animation thought that the intro to the prologue was kinda long but it was good.

Amazing. Telling a story with just movement, and sound, with no narration is a hard thing to do and you did it perfectly fire time. Seriously well done.
