It’s a story about a pirate.
There’s an octopus, a pretty lady, sword fighting and music…
But above all : it’s a story about love !

Well done, that looks awesome! Is the first shot of the three guys hanging from the crazy tree cg or stop motion? Definitely a sign both of how perfect the animation is and of how well done the cg work is done if one has to ask to be sure ;)
This looks amazing!!! Whens the short come out?
Love the octopus.
That looks astounding! I remember seeing some stills of the octopus girl a while back, and thought that was pretty great, but everything in it is superb! I really like that composition with the clouds, ships, and rocky islands/trees, all perfectly blended together. (It makes me really re-think my opening wide shot for my Poe film, which I thought was reasonably atmospheric, but in comparison it looks dull and sterile.) The guys hanging from the tree were beautifully done, too. And the pirate puppet in closeup - love it!
The only thing I didn't like is - it's only a trailer! I want to see the film. Want it. Want it now. Now now now.
WOW!!!!! That is breath-takingly beautiful.
Was really happy to see this film in its entirety during Encounters short film festival in Bristol... I didn't know you animated on this film too, I remembered seeing some stills footage a long time ago, great to see how it finally has all come together. Enjoyed every second of it, a very beautiful little film...
Good luck with this breath-taking high quality graphic!
Very inspiring! Can't wait to see the full film!
I would pay money to see more! thats feature quality! wow!
