Interesting story. The silhouettes were REALLY cool. Hope to see more!

The way you combine real actors with drawn artwork is extraordinary. This was much fun to watch. Like others have written here, it felt a little rushed, story could have easily filled out a longer film. Yes I read your comment that this was due to the rules :)

I wonder whether there is a higher quality encode (HD?) available?

Thanks for the comment. I'm glad you liked the experiment with the actors and artwork. Hope to make an other one where I'll have more time to explore the world i've created.
Unfortunately I haven't uploaded a higher quality encode. The full movie in full resolution is about 12Gig.
Maybe i'll upload better encoded version in the future.

Really great drawings in this short film! Very beautiful.

The story was very nice. But I feel like it was hurried trough faster than it should. I think it would have been a lot better if they had taken the time to flesh it out more. Maybe the story should've been told over 20-30 min instead of only 15?

This short was created for a school project. We had a time limit of 10 minutes... So I already broke those rules.
But I understand, I too had the feeling that this story could be a bit longer.
Maybe in the near future i'll make a second chapter that's longer !
