Great Story.

Maybe you need to get better your molding technique.

But It's great your shortfilm.

Lots of goodness in there! 

I really liked the style of the characters. And the sets were wonderful. I loved the lighting effects in the TV sequence.

Your clay characters, your sets, and your lighting really blend it all together into a consistent look.  I like your films very much!

I liked... so much

Comment by Strider on February 4, 2013 at 11:15pm

Absolutely amazing!!! This is truly animation raised to an art form - not just cartoons for kids or somebody showing off their slick animation techniques. Mesmerising. How terrible to think you were making such a beautiful film that was ruined with your hands in every frame! So much work for each frame... 

Comment by Asya Lukin on February 4, 2013 at 11:29pm

Thank you Everybody very much for your comments! They are really encouraging!

excellent work Asya, refreshing to see a simple human story given such weight and style- there is much to love here- the consistently crumbling set and character design meshes perfectly- especially considering the tale- the lighting and framing is masterful- your work reminds me of Suzie Templeton at times, in the detail of the sculpts to announce the character, and the slow ponderous edit that lets us linger over the emotions- you strike me as almost a claymation suzie templeton at times- and in my book, that is praise indeed.

the sound design is highly effective and seals the deal in terms of hooking us in, and your framing and shot design is at times exquisite- as soon as I resolved and understood the first clever focus pull shot, i was hooked. The nuances of emotional performance you coaxed out of these characters was also amazing, and perfectly paced...we talk a lot here about the 'ghetto' of supernatural themes that stop motion often falls into here, and this is a prime example of the other end of the spectrum. it has taken me a while to look at this, and now I have, i send major kudos- are you still in London?

I love it. Granted, I only saw a couple videos here because I'm new to this site... but this is really great. The animation is smooth, sets are wonderful, lighting is great... looks professional. The character design looks scary because of the crudeness (on purpose, perhaps?). The voice-over & sound effects are also top-notch. What do you use for sound-mixing?

Comment by Asya Lukin on February 9, 2013 at 6:33am

Thank you very much! It is really encouraging to hear good words, especially now when I am struggling alone with the my new film. John, unfortunately I am not in London anymore, I had to return to Jerusalem.

Rodney, you asked about sound mix, it was made in Protools in the equipment of the college where I studied.
