This is an animation I created for school using Softimage XSI 1.5 from September 2001 through April 2002. I did not have any restrictions on the subject whatsoever so I had fun creating this little bugger named Steve. Note that this the first time I create a high quality animation of this length (I did create other stuff in the past but I'm not going to post them here since they mostly suck ass). It took forever to do since I did not know much about high resolution modeling, animating and rendering prior to doing this project, so don't complain if there are little errors here and there.

GREAT MUSIC and a very good job however it was done.

That was really good work. As said the cinimatography was good, and I like the character a lot.
Although we know what happened I think a comical and exaggerated 'splat' at the end would have been good.

Also the walk is a little ridgid, but generally the character animations were very smooth and expressive. Very good work with the environment as well.

I like it.

nice cinematography, animation needs more work though, especially walks. i don't really mind that you didnt show what happened to him because it's pretty obvious but still, the impact of climax should be strengthened more in my opinion.
keep up the good work

Unlike Matt, I don't like not knowing how things end. Makes the piece feel incomplete, meaningless and unresolved.
I like the character animation, directing and music.

Hehe! Pretty Good! I especially like the music, sets up the atmosphere and the light hearted nature of the film. If some comedy were put on the way he climbed to the top, would have been the perfect film.

Nice Work
