The mist is pretty cool... though otherwise this feels a bit... void. Wish there was a meaning to it. Even with the tragic end it doesn't really capture the emotion, or the pain with the trap, or the dystopia in more ways than the visual.

It was what it claims to be though! Visually not bad, but could use a bit more build-up and expression somehow. I don't really immerse.

Thanks for the honest review! I agree with your points completely. The story was originally a 3 partner with three bombs leading up to a gag, but with it being a project in university, I had to cut things short and miss the punch line.
Glad you can dig the style though! that was kinda the real point of the project :)

Wow, those are some really nice effects! I love the setting in this video, that subtle fog and that smoke make it indeed feel like this is a deserted world, post-apocalyptic world.

Also, the way that girl was behaving in the video, watching that explosion occur, climbing that mountain and stepping into that trap, so lonely and with no hope... You did it quite welll, good job on that! ;D

Thanks so much!
