Anybody know this cg short?
show user profile  Anthony_Howell
I remember seeing a short cg film a while back, but am unable to find it now. I'm hoping one of you guys knows about it or even where to find it.

It's maybe 10 minutes long and involves a guy going to work as an architect, but he goes into a VR type setup, where he proceeds to build a french (i think) street with all the buildings and what not. It's like he's 3dsmaxing in VR. He feels pressured by time, and at the end you realize he was building it for his wife who is in a coma.

Any ideas?

That is a really nice short.
The writing, editing...really is worth watching. Kind of inspiring, but yet touching...all in the same breath.

It's well made, but I'm not sure I get the point. Was he making it and imagining she was there, or was that being channeled into her head while she was comatose? or...?

That was just beautiful. I think Autodesk should invent technology like this as part of a new modelling plugin haha :)

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

Phil.... "technical-nerdy mode on" Unfortunately, the biggest percentage of people in this world are more likely to watch something with full attention if the actors/actress' are at least average looking if not very attractive. lf she weren't wearing makeup, a certain percentage of viewers are likely to lose interest, or forget they even saw the show in a matter of minutes. As a result, this reduces the chances of free advertisment in the way of "word-of-mouth" advertisment. Nobody will mention it to their friends/family/coworkers if they can't hardly remember.

Notice how nearly 98 percentage of missing children are not even known to the public, via TV/news.?.? They seem to air only the stories of the families who have money/fame/fortune and they are always attractive, good looking people. How many shows have you seen like, 20/20, 48hours Mystery, and 60 minutes that air missing persons who come from poverty, living in the ghetto????
I've seen absolutely NONE.
"nerdy technical mode off"

Honestly guys, I'm just having MF withdrawls again cuz I haven't had any time to visit much....and I am just rambling on about anything and everything just for the chance to brush up on my typing, I'm bored as FK.

That's what I assumed. Kind of Neuromancer style if you've ever read it.

EDIT: Or I guess the Matrix would be a more well known example than Neuromancer.

I think the empathy of the male character being in love with the lady would be more easily conveyed to the public if shes beautiful, hence the makeup. in order for the audience to feel what he feels, i doubt id connect with the guys love for her if she weighed 600 pounds and looked like a neanderthals face in a blender
