Here is the BFX competetion that made the sequence possible.
Thanks for looking!
My goodness, thanks for the DD!
Now that the tide has calmed, I think I may ask some more stuff...
The pace of this thing is insane and we have an abrupt ending, with the explosion eating up the Cyclops head. While it's an interesting way of ending, because of the shock of stopping right in the climax (TV series do this a lot these days), I am left to think it was made this way due time (or resources) restraints. Could you elaborate on those? Was there a time limit for the contest? Or maybe did you have to shorten it to meet deadlines?
Aside from BFX, did this short achieve any more visibility and awards? Have you folks found good opportunities because of this short? Received any serious or weird proposals?
Great Animation the moves are nice and correct to the eye keep animating.
