why not make the picture the link to the movie?


Great film and overall concept. The ambient DnB track suits it well.


this was worthless…

nice sophmoric character animation…nice color treatment…as for anything else? i wont even go there.


however, i must add:

great website…very evocative of the film’s feeling… one of the better cinematic websites i have seen


Aww that’s awesome :)


To SC: Worthless? Come on dude, that’s not what this site is about, play nice. No one’s on here critiquing SharpTurn Productions.


SC looking at your reel you dont have any room to talk. I find it very nicely done, such a cool way to portray the sun and moon.


i cant help but feel i’ve seen this film before, well something incredibly similar! a year back.
