Azarkant 3D Short Film (Video)

This is an awesome short film done entirely in 3D animation and made from a home computer. The attention to detail is amazing and Azarkant feels like a mix between Halo (obviously), Prometheus, and Dead Space…Which as we all know got most of their influences from Alien. The music and sound effects are great and really give you the feel of being isolated in space. However, some of the gun sounds were a little washed out which could be attributed to the silence of space, but then other sound effects that shouldn’t be heard either were crystal clear.

The reason these films are so heavily copied in this film is because Azarkant is actually an ode to the artists favorite sci-fi films. I think the only issue I had with the actual animation was some of the body proportions, particularly in the neck and head region were a little off. While the texturing and lighting were spot on I think some work could have been done to fix some of the character models…Especially the main character. However, that is a minor nit pick when you consider that this was done on “pure enthusiasm and in his spare time“.

All in all this movie is pretty amazing especially for something that didn’t have a big Hollywood or gaming budget. Anyways check out the 8 minute short film Azarkant and let us know your thoughts.
