This Side Up - My first short film

Finally its done. My finished short film This Side Up.





This was the most challenging and rewarding project I've worked on so far :) At Ringling we are in charge of every aspect of the film, from concept to Animation..
I still have a few things I want to fix and will probably post a fixed version in the future, but for now, Enjoy!

Special thanks to Keith Osborn - my faculty advisor on the film, Billy Merritt my pre-production instructor and Jim McCampbell head of the computer animation department.

Music by Erez Koskas, Sound edit by Ido Levran, and extra help by Matt Killian.

Sooooo good! Congratulations!!!

Favorite parts...

1. when he first peeks up over the desk in the beginning, great blinks!
2. when he falls asleep and is pushing up on the side of his face... turned out really nice!
3. when he puts the cd down and gets worried for a second

Congrats again!

Excellent job, Liron!
The animation is top notch...all of the subtleties in the facial and hands, especially.
And the story is fantastic! You and Oshan should be very proud.

PS - thanks for the add
