This Wonderful Animated Life

This Wonderful Life:

This short film features some of the most advanced and complex facial expressions I have ever seen Truly impressive both technically and artistically. Armed with nothing but his trusty Athlon 1.4 Ghz, 3ds max and a lot of patience…

Some of the skin textures and expressions surpass anything done in many movies. According to the interview at that site:

I was using an Athlon 1.4ghz with 1.5gb RAM and a 64mb Geforce card. I had to buy three more workstations for rendering.

The creator’s web site is having some band-width issues right now.

  1. The ending wasn’t great, but the ending wasn’t the most important part of the story.

    I think it would have been a good short film whether it was CGI or not.

    The close-up facial expressions were good, but the wide shots which showed her whole body were kind of creepy because I could tell it was CGI, unhuman. Some of the baby’s expressions were inadvertently creepy too.

    But overall, it was excellent.
