“Sometimes you should fight for what you love and keep on trying to make things work and never stop chasing it down but once that’s over and you’ve reached your limit or realized the expiration date already hit, you should let it go. Life works better that way.”

    ❦Shades of “Red Balloon”…beautiful animation and music.
    Quite lovely, Thanks😍

  2. If you love something, set it free, if it comes back, nobody else wanted it either, you’re stuck with it.

      ☞You funny Mr.Horselips!
      There’s actually been a few times I would have been more than happy to keep him had he come back for that reason…love can be stupid at times!

  3. This is a nice dose of sugar for my morning coffee or tea. Very pleasant to watch, nice music but it’s not something we haven’t seen quite a few times before — the idea, style and artistry — especially in today’s graphic arts videos.

    At very first view, before I saw the “boy”, I thought this is quite a beautiful location and thought about asking anyone here to identify the location. Then I saw the boy and realized it is just a great imagination and quite well done (the multiple “deer” confirmed this).

    What did impress me is the artistry and general animation of this video, particularly the physicality of the “boy”. We are coming very close to almost perfect animation of people with videos like this (and the recent 2011 movie, The Adventures of Tintin — and the artistry & animation of “Tintin”, but not the rest of the “cast”).

    Just wondering, how close are we to creating near-perfect animation of selected “super-stars” and not needing to hire any real people (and therefore save Million$ on super-inflated salaries)?

    .

    This also reminded me of the very typical religious propaganda videos (they’re well versed in spending the money required to make it look good) — you know, to “emphasize” how “god created” the beauty of this Earth and therefore everyone must believe in their bullshit.

  4. Remember the Final fantasy movies? I’ve always loved them because of the awesome graphics but this is way beyond Final Fantasy. Wonder what we will see in 5 years or so.

    “”Just wondering, how close are we to creating near-perfect animation of selected “super-stars” and not needing to hire any real people (and therefore save Million$ on super-inflated salaries)?””

    Actually, The recent TRON 2 actually used that technique for one of it’s main characters, Jeff Bridges.

    As for using the likeness of an actor, that actor would still be payed a bundle because he… owns his likeness. If he’s dead then the family does.

    As for your last paragraph it could have been lost for some other post me think.

    1. “Remember the Final fantasy movies?”

      Never saw them so I don’t know of their quality.

      Didn’t see TRON 2, but I did see the original TRON.

      “As for using the likeness of an actor, that actor would still be [paid] a bundle because he… owns his likeness. If he’s dead then the family does.”

      My question was more to advocating (possibly) using the graphics to “invent” a character and making it totally”as a human” — NOT based on anyone’s “likeness” therefore avoiding any “bundle” of payment to any living actor.

      “As for your last paragraph it could have been lost for some other post me think.”

      No, I stand by it — I’ve seen christian videos that look a lot like this one advocating “god’s creation” and of course, the “beauty” of their religion. I don’t particularly care that you probably didn’t/don’t like my comparison — it’s MY opinion and “critique” based on what I’ve seen in theatres and Internet videos.

      1. Maybe I can up you one. LOL We had Expo67 in Montreal and one of the pavilions was Le Sermon De La Science, Sermons From Science. It was awesome and had more than well done videos and graphics about everything science. Then I found out it was the Mormons that ran the damn place. Back then, mot knowing how insane they were I filled the guest book with my opinion and my name an address. Guess who came to dinner a few months letter. So, yeah, I agree with how far religious groups are willing to go to sell their snake oil, but it’s just that this time I didn’t need any kind of religious angle.

        As for artificial actors? True, you don’t need to buy a Lamborghini for Pluto. :P:

  5. And another one:
    If you truly love someone – set them free.
    If they don’t come back……Hunt! Kill!

  6. Hi!
    I’m glad that this blog is back again.

    Here is a “making of” video. These experts explain how they designed this demonstration for a method for real-time rendering.

    I’m impressed by these artists’ work. I like the message of this short movie and how they told this story.

    1. @Georg:

      Thank you for that. I love watching “How To” videos about different movies/videos. Very educational.

  7. A beautiful and emotionally uplifting short, but I would have enjoyed it more if it were not animated. The sentiment was very good and appropriate but incomplete: “If you love something (someone), let it (he or she) go. If it (he or she) belongs with (to) you, it (he or she) will return to you: possessive relationships are doomed to failure.
