Great sets and animation.

Sorry, I missed the credits. What was your role?

That was amazing! Extremely well done all around. A very strange presentation online though - after a very lengthy (but excellent) presentation, then suddenly your film with absolutely no fanfare, broken in half with a "subscribe to PBS" commercial in the middle that you have to figure out how to slap down in order to see the second half of the film... 

But it was well worth it!! Thanks for letting us know about it! 

Well done! Loved it! I been wanting to see this for some time and now I finaly got to. Tell everyone involved a much deserved round of applause is in order.

This was great, but you had me on the edge of my seat more than once. I was so nervous! Thanks for the great film experience.

Beautifully realized - nice job!

I was the director on this. I also made the puppets with a small team, and animated about a third of the animation.

Glad you enjoyed it!

Oh dear, I didn't even realise it was broken in half! That's odd for an only 10 minute short. As soon as I can post it proper online I will. Atm it is tied to rights etc, so I can't stick it online by itself.
I'm glad you watched it tho, and enjoyed it!

Thanks, David! And thank you, Shae, too! I feel honoured that you have been wanting to see it for a while! I will pass on your compliments to the rest of my team :]

I'm sorry I had you nervous throughout the film, Brandon! But I'm very happy that you enjoyed the experience in the end :]

This was my reaction too.

The animation/sets/puppets were very good.

Been wanting to see this since I read about it in March!

Thanks for making it viewable online. Very peaceful in style. Love the face sculpts.

Thanks, Vitriol, I hope it didn't disappoint with such a long anticipation!

And thanks, Roger, too! I think it's amazing when a (short) film can play on your emotions so much, so it is a big compliment to hear you were that emotionally involved, thank you :)

i enjoyed it very much! loved the characters & the story... the girl is soo cute :) but i feared for her life several times!
