Great Animated Short

I just stumbled upon this great short film created by 2 talented artists.

Some people might say, “It looks great, especially since 2 people did it with no budget.” I say it looks “Great”, Period. The music and sound effects are also perfect. I’ve been out of town this week and the hasty sprinting and frolicking made me miss my 2.5 year old just a bit.

The animation of the eyes is just brilliant, anyone with young kids knows the familiar scanning and investigative stare.

Announcing Element 3D V2!
It has been a little over 2 years since the release of Element 3D V1 and I still remember it quite vividly. I recall staying up all night before the launch, trying to get everything done. I was nervous and excited.  My son Josh had just been born a week earlier and I was working from home at the time. […]

Element 3D V2 will be available in 2 weeks on Dec 2! Yeah! I know I’m 2 days past my November goal but we are really happy with the progress and we needed the extra time to get everything dialed in!

Technical Details about E3D V2
Now that we have released the first look at Element 3D V2, you can see that this is not a small update to our plug-in. It is a massive overhaul with many big features. So, I thought I would take a little time to answer a few technical questions. NOTE: Pricing information and upgrade paths […]

Great job! I've been following on twitter the making of along the last 2 years of "Meet Meline". I do think the girl could be more realistic in render terms, but the feeling of the character it's perfect, astonishing.

For those who say things like "it's creepy" or "has bad IK Blending"... I bet you can't do anything 10perCent of the quality of this video, so please, shut up with the blame and enjoy it.

Also love the camera work, it's incredible. You can feel you are there, almost like another little animal through the floor or under the van following her movements.

Hope once I would work as well as they do.

Andrew, You mentioned that there were two artist that were responsible for this, yet the credits were riddled with additional names and such. By artists did you simply mean CG animation? I felt as if one day i could climb to this level of proficiency with a 3d program until i saw the ending credits.

I saw someone say something about doing a CS5 tutorial. I'm not getting CS5 until they realize that dropping support for 32 bit plugins was the stupidest thing they ever did. I use normality in almost all of my projects and I'm not getting something that doesn't support it.

Half of the people using After Effects used it because of all the 3rd party plugins. Getting rid of that functionality "leveled the playing field" (Stefan Minning).

They did that "AT HOME" and with "ONLY 2 LAPTOPS" (I watched the making) OMG!, I am well into animation and VFX and know that I will never be Hollywood Standard but I though I was ok for an amateur but, this really really puts me to shame and even with my brilliant desktop set-up and software. This is absolutely brilliant. They must win some type of amateur award for this or something. If anyone knows of their work been entered anywhere for a vote, please let me know as I will vote for them as they really deserve every single vote they can get.

WOW, thats an amazing short movie. perfect animation and sound.... It goes to show, all of us are capable of producing movie quality animations, you don't have to be a profession to do it.

Beautiful! The sound design and music were great! I too felt like it was live action in the very beginning. Very well done.

And @MC, I don't believe it was supposed to be a squirrel. I think that's the reason you never fully see it because it's supposed to be left to your imagination what it is. An alien creature of some kind? Some undiscovered species. They don't let you see it because what it is isn't the story. Her discovery of it is.

I really enjoyed this little short. Almost everything was perfect. The music, the scenery and the voice and movements of the little girl were spot-on. The whole thing made me think of 'Boo" from "Monsters Inc." Then I saw her face, and I thought that it looked like something from one of the Final Fantasy movies. I couldn't justify in my head the combination of the two. The design of the little animal also gave it too much of a 'manga' feel for me to completely love the short.

Thanks Andrew. This was just a wonderful way to spend 6 minutes. And to Jerry who said, "...Am i the only one that was kinda creeped out by the little girl..."?

As the father of one little girl (now 31) and the grand father of another little girl (almost 3) I will say they nailed the character, actions and looks. Energy that splashes out every which way leaving a trail of destruction behind it as it goes forth to learn and experience.

DELIGHTFUL.

Am i the only one that was kinda creeped out by the little girl...the rest of the animation was beautiful. But the little girl just kinda weirded me out for some reason...the uncanny valley effect perhaps?

That was such a beautiful, poetic piece of work, I loved it. Got to see the "making of" too.

Agreed with many comments above, amazing animation and the camera moves had a very realistic feel that sets this apart from many CGI films I've come across! Lovely music too. Very nice post AK...

Wow... That piece has real heart.

It makes me miss living on a ranch with a barn.
City slicers have no idea how magic they can be for a 6 year olds.

That's were the fresh milk comes from.
That's where you find new kittens.
That's where you can jump from the loft into loose hay.
That's where the fireflys explode into the air when you walk through after dark.
That's where you can re-stack hay bales into big forts with long tunnels.
That's where your favorite Welsh pony waits for you to come out and give him a flake of hay and a can full of grain...

Can't find that in the city!

THIS is what I am aiming for to achieve!! Thanks Andrew! Now to just learn HOW to make animations like this... still learning how to model people... ugh

Nice.
Very impressive. Love the environment especially! The eyes are very expressive, yes. Maybe a little more work on facials to match but whatever. Nominal aspect compared to the project as a whole. This short still emulates award winning talent. There were about a dozen people who worked on this (though the bulk was done by the couple). Sound foley and editing, among others, were not the two modelers/animators. I hope this accelerates the group to more bright and fruitful endeavors. Bravo!

Thanks for sharing Andrew.

Fantastic work, the realism in the background work was better than any animated film I've seen since the old Fleisher Brothers Popeye cartoons. The lighting with it's simulated volumetric look was what really caught my eye. great inspiration piece. Thanks for sharing, Andrew.

Just imagine what 2 people can do basically on their own computers nowadays!
The world of multimedia is getting some really creative people now.
Plus having the facilities to practice, train and work from home prepares them for the industry as well.

Nice post! :)

When will we get to see Sam Loya again? I miss his wild and crazy antics, like that time he got hit by the SUV or when he changed into an alien that resembled me after a day in the office. Ah, good times :)

Very nice. It is reminiscent of another short, "Big Buck Bunny" that was done w/ Blender 3D and the CG Animation is quite impressive. http://www.vimeo.com/1084537
