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.


Simply amazing, the atmosphere and the attention to detail in this is remarkable! I would reccomend you to get someone to help with the moddeling and animation so PHASE TWO comes out sooner! :D

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!

Perfect, yes awkward movement, but hey, for all I know, that was intended, maybe character isn't human? Other than that, BEAUTIFUL, and amazing

Two words: Metroid Prime

Great 3D animation man, loved it.

The only thing I can say that might be negative is that the gun he's carrying seems to be held a little weirdly, but hey, everything else is amazingly done! Can't wait to see more from you. :)
