The drama of a mother and her children planning a desperate escape from a scary, hungry beast that preys on them is captured in this short animation film.

Everything was great. Very cinematic, good story, etc. Half a star off because the movement was horrible.

Wonderful, I loved the story, I love the art, but especially I love how you used the black to represent the mother and her children and the white to represent the monster, changing compleatly the concept of what is good and what is evil.

Not only that but you did it so well that the glow of the monster was not taken for something holy or glorious, instead, it was a threat, it was danger getting closer to this family. It glows towards them as if it was trying to catch them instead of it glowing everywhere trying to chase the darkness away.

At last I just want to say. Really well done sir, I give you 5 stars :D

nice work even if i can't stand bad endings...it's terribly sad...i guess there's a meaning behind the story...i'm curious to know what it is...is the monster the metaphor of something ???

This is just an amazingly orchestrated piece of work. it literally had me entranced. The beautiful animation style, and the atmospheric music was amazing. I just loved this

Salamu Alaekum, not bad at all, impressive drawing style, suspenseful, sad ending. But i liked it, well done and grats for ur prize in Dubai.
