Almargen - Planetas

Share Collapse

This is our first, debut project (though uploaded second here)

We are an experimental audio/visual duo project looking to push the boundaries of art and manifest all the rattle of our inner worlds.

Amaral Krichman (me) does visuals and Marco Tenaglia does music/audio

If you like it, consider sharing! We're looking to reach out as far as we can.

The 3D modeling and visual fx are excellent.
But thats it...

It's of very high quality but it honestly feels pretty empty....kinda..soulless.
Didn't really seem too clear what was going on either. Still, the visuals,
animation & sound being that good makes it passable. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for the feedback! I agree mostly. Perhaps an extra week or two of worktime could've allowed me to add a bit more depth. I wouldn't go as far as to call it souless (since it has meaning for me, lol) but I do agree it's all a bit unclear. While it was part of the idea, I guess it's a delicate balance. Hehe. Thanks!

Very powerful.
Nice approach to simplistic style, and very effective use of contrasting light & dark, in combination with the audio.
Very effective!
Excellent composition.

Reminded me of something from the mind of Arthur C. Clarke.

As a Science Fiction buff, Good job!

Very good, especially for a debut project!

It became a bit repetitive in the second half, but it never lost it's dark, mysterious drive both in the sound department and the art design.

Since you mentioned in your comment that this is about "our inner worlds", maybe the final scene should not end with a fade-out but with a zoom in on the planet, to show a transition from the inner to the outer world.
Just a suggestion ^^

Thank you so much for the feedback! At a time I did consider moving the ship a bit towards the end, but I ended up discarding it. I preffered the big 'oh...' feeling, but looking it back now, it does feel a little dull... our next one's gonna have that aspect clearly stated, don't you worry! :D
Oh and regarding the repetitiveness, I agree. I had all sort of ideas to maybe ease that, but eventually I just ran out of time.

Cheers and thanks again!
