In the middle of the desert, there is no water for miles in all directions, except for a fortress oasis named Green Acres. The owner of this gated plot of land will stop at nothing to protect his water supply, and he has an arsenal of weapons to do it. It's going to take one very lucky tortoise to slip past his defenses.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I am not a huge fan of CG animation and I much prefer traditional but this is an amazing work.

Thanks! I like traditional animation a lot too. Most of my animated shorts so far were made in Flash.
