@ Ali I have a job now, but who knows if there is any good projects or opportunities :)
Nice work Daniel!
@Loralie McGil-Ardolino Thanks Loralie :)
You're very welcome Daniel :)
I"d go see this is if it was a feature! Smart!
Very nice. Looks great. If you could ever use my voice let me know.
very nice animation, I like the character design.
That was AMAZING :) If it took you six months to do how long would it take you do a feature ?? Honestly you do really great work . Can't wait to see more
Thanks all for nice compliments. @ Onyx London - it took 6 months. yes I know it took pretty long, but I have done whole things myself, that's why it took so long. I just wish there is a good chance to make a real one soon :)
Keep at it Daniel... That was pretty amazing... Loved the design and just from that, I know the story will be awesome...
So Cool! Awesome details and a really fluid character animation! Any breakdowns?
Amazing work there! Looking forward to see more:)
OMG! That is AMAZING!
Wow! I can't wait for more!
Nicely done ...Awesome Daniel !
Allow me to tweet that ?!
Hey Claudio. Thanks for the nice compliment. Sure you can tweet it. Thanks :)
Thanks Renovatio movies. :)
Very cool man, I digg it. I enjoyed the part with the gears moving as you travel through it.
:D Really liked it Daniel :)
Spectacular work! Look forward to seeing more from you.
That is amazing work and I really want to see the finish product!!! Great work, Daniel!
wonderful facials and gestures - great mood too. Liked the accent also.
Would love to screen this at the festival I program in DC. If interested, please inbox me for details and a fee waiver. I'm really pushing for a higher presence of animated works.
wheres the rest?....i was watching that! haha ;)
@Anthony Hey Anthony. This project has stopped with financial issue : / This trailer is all I have for now. If you are still interested in this trailer for your festival, send me email to firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks :)
that is too bad....I certainly hope you can push for and find funding from someone on Stage 32....this is just too, TOO good!
I agree Beka the animation is excellent good luck. :D http://on.fb.me/HC0C3Y #SWEETWEETS @videoBL
Thanks Beka and Lina, much appreciate that :)
This is amazing Daniel, great work! :)
Fantastic work Daniel!
This is amazing im going to college now for animation and this makes me wanna do it even more
This is great Daniel! Looks like a great film in the making!
Let's animate my Hegira sci-fi series Daniel and make some real money.
Hi Thomas. Can you tell me about your 'Hegira' project? that sounds interesting.
Please email me at email@example.com. There are 8 feature film scripts to the Hegira series.
I never get tired to watch this animation.
Hey Daniel, great stuff. I worked at Pixar for many years, great to see cool animation films like yours come out at a lower budget level :) You should be very proud. If you want some tips on lighting and cinematography, hit me up, I was a lighting artist at Pixar. Congrats!
Thank you guys for all the nice compliments :)
Anything happening with this Daniel? I just veiwed it again...really marvelous!
Hi Beka. I didn't make this movie for promotion. I am working on another movie for real short animation, so maybe next time :) Thank you for the nice compliment
this one would surely wim something
may I use it for my festival in Oman in Oct pls send firstname.lastname@example.org
Great work Daniel. Love the concept.
Thanks Mark and Jason. Much appreciate :)
funny little anim. nice
nice work Daniel looks beautiful !
Hi Kim, much appreciate that :)
Hi Daniel, looks very good, out of curiosity, how long did this take you to put together?
Hey James. It took total 4 months including pre-production, 3D, audio, voice over, and video editing.
Are you including creating the characters from scratch?
Hi Annie. Yes. I designed the middle guy myself, and gave a lot guideline to concept designer for the lady and gentleman. Basically I made the middle guy first, then used it as template for rest characters.
Was this done in 3D Studio? Nice work
It's done in Softimage and Arnold Render. Thank you for nice compliment :)
Why did you use a Windows (Softimage) program and then a Maya Program (Arnold Render) which seems like a rendering program. Is this a better way to do animation ...use a program to build the character and then render the characters with another program. I am a Apple MAC person. I can use Maya programs but not ones only made for Windows. This is why I am curious. Thank you for taking the time to get back to me. You deserve a lot of compliments ...it is simple and wonderfully done as well as not an easy task.
Hey Annie. Softimage is just like Maya. It is 3D software. And Arnold Render is professional renderer. Because of it's high quality and easy to manipulate details, I chose this pipeline Softimage+Arnold. A lot of film production also work with Arnold + Maya, or Arnold + Softimage too. I have iMac, so I use both mac os x and windows 7, but for all 3D works, I do with windows7, because it simply has a lot better softwares and integration.
We are making a film/cartoon. Would you be interested in creating the animation involved? 75% of the movie is real life.
If you are looking for an V.O. talent yet I'd like to be in on that! I have a short demo up on my page! :D
I like this a lot Dan you the man
Hi Daniel ...just to let you know. I work in Flash and I love it. I do all of my own art, all the timeline animation and some of the action scripting. I made an animation game for cancer patients while I was going through treatments for breast cancer. Looking at what you have done inspires me to learn programs such as soft image. Thank you again ...Annie
wow... I didn't expect I will see dating ad on Stage 32... and there is even no option to delete a reply : /
What's love gonna do with it..... do with it?????
I'm sure Mr. Botto will be on it soon!
It seems to be a really funny story and a interesting animation! ;)
Well done mate!
I repeat Les Petersen. WOW!
Thank you Jordan, Les, Ian, and Kenneth :)
wow, i think it good, sir
By the way what did you use for the animation?
Hi Kenneth. I used Softimage for 3D works, Arnold Render for lighting & rendering, Eyeon Fusion for compositing.
Hello Daniel, Hope you feel you could go somewhere with this. Just keep sharing! Are there any productions for which you could use original music at the moment? Thanks for your time. Cheers, Niels.
Hi Niels. Thank you for the post. I am currently working for a game as game director right now. I will need BG music in near future, but I'm not sure when. Maybe one or two months later, but I will send you email when I start looking for. Thanks
That sounds good to me. By the way, BG stands for (not familiar with all abbreviations yet!). Talk to you then! Thanks, Niels.
Thank you Jacqueline :) and Niels
I see! Afterwards one wonders if that was obvious :-) Then again I don't completely feel along with the b(ack) part. But hey, it's just an expression of course!
You did an outstanding job, intrigue, and suspense, I am hooked!
Hi Michele. Thanks for the nice compliment :)
Outstanding work! Love it!
Thank you Tiffy :)
Great, love it!
Thank you Mark
Fantastic, keep up the good work!
Nice. Let me know if you ever need voices. I do a few you know.
Ditto what Kevin said....altho I have seen this and commented before...it's worth saying over and over BRAVA!
Thank you Beka :)
Great work Daniel!
Thank you George
Looking Good, looking real fine!
This is great! I love the detail even down to the lady and her hips (LOL). Awesome!
Thank you Alexander, Mike, Michelle, Kirk. I appreciate that nice compliments :)
It is amazing Daniel, so lifelike... The mannerisms are just brilliant, and the voice over of the characters bring it to life....So realistic.
Do you do animation for other writers? I write children's stories, and some, I believe, would be suitable for animation. Trying to get them into book form for publishing at the moment.
Hi Janet. Thank you for the all nice compliments. I had several chances to make animation with children's book, but it didn't go well because of financial stuff. What kind of story do you have and what is your plan? If you send me email with detailed info, that would be great :)
Thank you Daniel, where can I find your email? I write classical fairy tale style on some. My descriptions are very descriptive, making it easy to know where to place the illustration.
Nice work. I just started using some Cinema 4D, a lot of modeling practice in my future.
Great work! I wish you all the best in your future pursuits!
Thank you Carrie, Moses and Mark :)
Wow. Well done! Very inspirational to know that you basically created this yourself from scratch. I know you said it took four months to make this, but out of curiosity how many hours did you put in? Full time/part time, etc? And also, how long did it take you to learn Softimage and the other programs and were you self-taught or did you go to school? I ask because I am learning animation from scratch (3 months in so far) and it's a fun learning curve but a bit steep. Thanks and again, great job.
Hi Chad. Thank you for nice compliment. I worked in office for it, so I spent 8 hours a day. In case of Softimage, I don't think it doesn't take long. I have been using Softimage since Softimage|3D, so I don't remember how long it took. I have 3 artists in my team now and they all switched their tool from Maya or Max to Softimage with Arnold render, and it didn't take longer than 2 months to train them all pipelines.
That was amazing! Excellent Work!
Thanks Rebecca and Laurence
Never ceases to amaze Daniel..... Just brilliant.
Awesome job! looks promissing! It would be great to collaborate with you, if you need a male American or... Canadian sounding voice as well
It is truly awesome..... Daniel.... How did you get on with your script?
Hi Claudio, I will send you email when I need a male voice actor. Hi Janet. How are you doing? One of my voice actress friend in Canada is helping me for proofreading now :) I was busy, so couldn't not handle my personal project, but it is time to push it to finish ;)
Good to hear....
nice work. Lets keep animation alive and kicking
I love it Daniel!
@jim @maria Thank you :)
Excellent work Daniel. Keep forging ahead.
This is already the 3rd time you post this as your latest work
AND KEEP POSTING....its absolutely wonderful and should be an Oscar short! :d
Add that to your 'Reel' here! (you don't have to load it up here, just use the URL, see my profile for examples, though all mine are on YouTube I think at this time)
Thanks for your advice Tom. I added my movies on 'Reel' :)
NP! My god, my stuff pales next to yours (-: http://www.stage32.com/video/94693
Absolutely superb .. what else can I say? lol .. Bill
Thanks Bill :)
Again this post???? This is something like the 4th time you post this Daniel. Either this is not the right medium for it or your medium and long term memory are shattered. make something new and stop fishing for compliments. I'm beginning to doubt this post is genuine...
It will pop up as long as a person makes a comment and your account still follows it. I think it's great that it keeps popping up, Daniel will only get noticed more and more...isn't that what we all want?
Hey Niels. I don't post again and again... If someone put comment on any post, it just automatically pops up at the top. That's what Stage32 setup. If you don't like to see this post, I think you should delete your reply here, then I guess you will never see it.
he can also "unfollow" the post
I love the look and colours, i'm interested, can I do my own music thing or have you got something in mind, would love to see what you have?
awesome job !
We'd be interested in airing your work on our upcoming television network - www.theindependentnetwork.us
Hi Kirk. Please send me info via email@example.com thank you~
LOVE the GTR team ...really entertaining love the UK accents ..and "attitude"
Cool! Great work!
Thank you Jessica :)
Thank you Victor :)
So amazing. I'm impressed.
@Tui Allen thank you so much :)
Wow - wonderful work!
Hi Janet. Thank you so much :)
Hello my friend.... I am still on the look out for an illustrator.... could you private message me and let me know if you would be interested in considering doing some illustration for a fairy tale..... Janet.
Hi Janet. Unfortunately, I am only any use for technical illustrations and 3D animations. I have no skill as an illustrator of fairy tales. I wish I had this skill, but in this case I must just say sorry. Your's sincerely, Mark Bayliss.
Thank you Mark, much appreciated that you replied.
I swear, I never tire of watching this!
Fantastic animation. No jerkiness and smooth movements.
Daniel, you kiwis are getting good, most impressed with your work, would be surprised if you don't go far, best, cheers.
Hi Chanel. Thank you so much for that kind compliment :)
Looks fantastic, I have an educational app I'd like to talk to you about.
Stunning, Daniel - Excellent work mate - Can't wait to see more!
is this for a video game or a movie? The rendering is awesome.
Daniel your animation is brilliant. I love the main character as he immediately swept me up in his story. Not a great watcher of animation but I would love to see this when it is finished.
Loved it! Great work!
Keep it up, a la "Tim Burton"
Ricki, Chikun, James D, Spike, James S, thank you guys so much for nice compliments :) This one is an animation project for game opening.
You are very welcome! Keep up the good work!
send in a 1-minute silent to TUFF!
Brilliant, I never tire of watching this clip Daniel. Still have to get my self in order and make my way over to see you.....
Hey Janet. I am working another 50min length movie for animation festival now, and hopefully can show you soon. :) And good luck for your work too.
Thank you mate, looking forward to seeing that soon..... Thank you... one of these days... with luck my Lucy Goose a Christmas Tale will be out in July for the catalogues.... cheers....
Your lucky goose won't make it until Christmas! There's a turkey shortage coming up right before Thanksgiving!
Oh no.. you don't.... Nobody cooks this GOOSE. Lucy was supposed to take flight last Christmas, but... due to being different ...cough, cough... of course, I am not ever quite the norm when it comes to anything. My story was too short to be considered a Novel... and too long to be considered a Children's picture book...so... on the wings of hope My little Lucy G will take flight in time for the silly season this year.
She is a Hero Goose by the way....
Those taste the best! ;-)
Great job Daniel
Really Really Fabulous!
I really like this and your characters are wonderful.
loved it !!!!!
This is really amazing that this animation still gets new post :) Thank you so much people~!
Absolutely dying to take this train ride.
Thank you so much Epic Acg, Jesse Perez, Umff Tang :)
Love the swagger in their walk, especially the woman. In what capacity did you work on this?
Hi Brenda. Thank you for the compliment. By the way, I didn't get what you mean of 'capacity'. Can you tell me what you meant?
I meant are you the writer, director, producer, etc.
For this animation, yes I was writer, director, producer, and animator :)
Wow! that's a lot of hats to wear. Great job.
Its super interesting and very good work. Only one think that I see as a mistake, that can be corrected, they are walking in a straight line. People when they walk, body goes up and down, so its more natural.... You can check some tutorials online, unless it was your idea to make them walk like that. If thats the case, I love it all together. :)
You will let us know what happened next, right? This is a serious teaser ,)
Hi Daniel. I hope there is a financial angel, so I can keep making this one Q_Q
Nice work! Have you tried a crowd funding source for finance?
Hi Ty Ferrell. I haven't done it yet.
Hi Daniel, great job and well done. What is next...let me know. Best
Hi April. Next... Yes I am looking for fund to finish this project myself : ) Let me know if you know any angles there who is willing to help a project like this.
Hi Daniels, I will. Best
Hi Daniel, Great work. Let me know if you want to expand the story to full length screenplay. Happy to do it on spec. If this is of interest send a PDF Treatment / Synopsis of what you have via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Regards, Tom
LOL! This is really good. I'd totally watch this if it was a feature.
Hi Daniel- do you have a composer for this yet? I've got a couple animated shorts that I scored that Id be happy to show you :)
Nice job Daniel.
I love it. Sound is really good. Nice.
This is good work Daniel.
good!! what exactly did u do in that?
Dan will pay.. looking for 90 min animation pieces email@example.com
@richard el asmar Hey Richard. I did all, CG, directing voice acting, video editing. @Mark Ratering Please let me know if you have a good project to work with :)
Spectacular! (I know I've seen this one before elsewhere...)
Thank you guys so much :) @miguel @Kris @ Brian @ Janet
Thoroughly professional look and feel to the animation. Congrats!
DANG! That was incredible work Daniel! The train with the water under the bridge?!? What can I say? I'm Speechless! You got skillz! Congratulations on this!
amazing work :)
Wow, this gets me really excited to see what happens next! Are you making this into a full movie? It has the feel of a trailer/introduction. :)
Very nice work all around, I especially liked the GTR end segue into the gear works.
Top notch, from start to finish!
Love this! D.
That is neat.
Great Work !!
