This animated short explores architectural visualisation, but in a less traditional sense; instead of aspirational and expensive, the location is generic and functional. Through lighting, composition [more]

Your use of single-source lighting and simple, gentle camera movements were perfect.

You could not have chosen a better piece of music! The Village is one of my favorites... but check copyright issues. just because you gave him credit and don't make any money from its use doesn't mean it's free to use. Just a heads-up.

The 3D modeling was flawless!!! with one exception: at 1:38, the RCA plugs are a bit flat. the lighting was just a touch off... but hey, I could never achieve such realism!

Well done!

Wow...I thought it was a mistake that the description said "animated" short...I thought this was filmed conventionally. If true, amazing!

I liked it. But obviously no one lives there. Way to clean.

Beautiful - I thought it makes a great example of how film language can completely change the way we perceive a subject. Spot on!

Great ebb and flow- lighting is great. I'm not clear on the use of music that belongs to others, but it's a nice, complementary piece.

Very nice Ben.. Nice use of camera and lighting. Can't believe it's all animated!! Did you create the set and all the models?? What program/s did you use.
Best wishes

PS.. I'm a live action cinematographer getting into animation.

While the cinematography was wonderful, the content seems vapid. I was left wondering if it was a commercial for a kitchen remodeling shop, an anti german reactionary treatise (Band of Brothers juxtaposed with Braun kitchen appliances?), an ode to the rising middle class (did your mum ever have one of these dishwashers?) or just a study in light and texture. Anyway, I wish you luck, you seem to have a great eye, and the soundtrack was marvelous. Just add some content and you would have me! And remember, no kittens were killed in doing this review!
