Reviews for "Pine"

Brilliant. I loved the animation and the timing, action, and dialogue was great. I really feel like it should have gone just a bit longer however, and it cut out very quickly. Other than that, it was a great film.

dylan responds:

Yeah, I know what you mean. If I had had more time to work on it, I would have liked to add more elements to it. There was originally a whole bit about pinecones, and then making a fire, and all this nice symbolic junk about life that I had to cut to get it animated in a week. Thanks though!

Awesome work, especially how there's another side to it revealed at the very end, for once watching the credits was really worth it! I'm wondering the guy (father?) was the real message, maybe he's dead; the movie is about the mourning and that kind of meaning. Inspiring watch!

dylan responds:

Thanks, man! I purposely left it pretty ambiguous, but I feel that might be more a limitation of my writing rather than a stylistic choice. There are a lot of possible meanings, and I wasn't able to fully nail myself down to one. Something to work on in the future!

Nice man!
I like the simple approach you took for the art style, leaving the details to the viewers imagination.
The audio is also pretty good, with a high quality sound pleasant to the ears.
Keep up the good work!

dylan responds:

Thanks, I feel like mixing audio is one of the things I can do at least semi-well, but it's really the awesome voice acting that makes the track.

Great animation but can you perhaps explain the very end to me because I'm a bit confused whether the father abandoned the child or the father was simply a figment of her imagination.

dylan responds:

He just went out for a pack of cigarettes, he'll be back in twenty.

I think I got goosebumps from that ending.

dylan responds:

Gladjya liked it! Well, I'm assuming that they're goosebumps of liking. Sometimes I get goosebumps when I see trailers for bad movies or listen to schmaltzy songs. Then I get self-conscious about it, like someone's going to know and judge me for it. It's weird.
