Mariza, Stubborn Donkey

Mariza is a funny short 3d animated film I created back in 2008 for the MA of Animation course I took in the animation school of the University of Technology Sydney. After a year of making it's run in the festival circuits I have decided to post it on-line for anyone to see.

This should be in front page. Incredible!

This is outstanding, front page material.

Good work!

this is cool. Wish I knew what Choro Paxi was. I only speak English. I guess it means market?

conkrys responds:

You mean the sign on the road? It reads Ano Chora, Kato Chora. This means "Top Town, Lower Town". This naming is often met in Greek islands where in the past two towns were established for piracy reasons. One on the beach and the other on the top of the highest point for safety.

I think that it will be frontpaged. Good animation but storyline too predictable. IMHO good execution but weak main idea.
