The Overseer: Valiance

Share Collapse

Author Comments

The man has arrived to his destination.
He has trekked across seas, plains and deserts and persevered through mother nature and hopelessness.
But no journey is without conflict, be it physical or within.
The man must ready his rifle. There are others who stand in his way.

Thank you! Couldn't find any good ones online, so I ended up taking a few and mixing them together.

Woah!That was intense!Could have had a little more action,but then there won't be so much presure of the situation!Nice work!

For the 1st draft of this fight, it involved 6 people vs. this 1 man. Cool music, lots of gunfire, and cool moves.... and I realized it'd be complete and utter bullshit after talking to some people. He'd be dead in a literal instant if it were real life.
So I opted for a smaller scale, didn't use faceless goons but semi-distinct characters, and made the dynamics more in tune with reality: if you are exposed in the open for even a few moments without suppressive fire covering you, you will be shwacked.
And thank you, glad you enjoyed it :D

Im not gonna lie...that is the most tense shit ive seen in a while...all my stars belong to this.

aggimajera responds:

I am glad you enjoyed it in that sense!

Interesting. Better animation later than the opening might suggest. Though the focus seems to be more on feeling than content, I was a little confused by the ending. What was the significance of the fox? A trailer-style with some commentary/over-view might have made things clearer and hopefully not destroyed the atmosphere. As a set piece, very good. As a trailer, good. As a precursor to a series, some changes would be welcome. Good score choice. Camera work for the battle was very well done. Good angles, shot composition and general use of Anime Studio Pro 9.

aggimajera responds:

I'm right there with ya... to be frank, this along with the previous 2 are meant to be one 20 minute long short film. I can see how this violence with no context would confuse ya.
Thanks for the insight.
