Thumbs up Short cartoon my brother made

Hey guys. OK, right now V as the Steelers fans R not really having the best time of our lives thanks 2 Ben, Holmes, & who else. So I want U 2 pay your attention 2 something else.

Do U guys remember my youngest brother who has done "The Steelers Mongols" pic he did few years ago before V got the 5th ring? He's finishing up with his school & this is something he had been working on 4 the last few months.

He hates it, but considering how little time he had on his hand & how little help he had I think it turned out pretty good. He had 2 trim it down so much, that he ended up hating the whole thing after he finished it.

& guys, if U like it please leave him a comment. I would really appreciate it.

It won't accept my comments, so please pass along...

Its a great story and a powerful message. Very well presented. The graphics are well done. No need to apologize for the sound, it works. My only critique is the gaps between sequences, but there might be an explanation for those.

Well done!!

And thank you for sharing this. I really enjoyed it. Especially in 720.

very good and professionally done. its amazing with the layers, depth, and 3-d effects they can do in cartoons these days.

i liked the local (mongolian i presume) music in the background, too. it reminded me of some tibetan monk music ive heard.

Mongol - this is good stuff. Tell your brother (he already knows this) to finish it! it's so close. I know what it's like to put so much into a project and not realize how close you are to finishing and then sort of letting it go. It's too close to give up now.
A few things:


He needs to hand-letter that title and the end credits. The difference between pre-made fonts and hand lettering is HUGE and worth it.
The wolf fight scenes need to be longer and have closure before entering the next scene.
The foley (sound effects in the background) is good (footsteps in snow, ambient music) but noise levels need to be adjusted and textured a bit more. Just details, but I'm sure he knows this.
The beginning could be shorter. The wolf stuff is the meat - and it's more captivating.

These are just some opinions, - hope he finishes this. Was this a solo project?
Is he moving on to more school or trying to get a job?

Very impressive Mongol and congrats to your brother.
I don`t know why but I was particularly struck by the moment when the man cleared the snow when he sat down....it showed great attention to detail.
Did I miss something,but why did the wolves leave first time around when they smelt the air?
Does your brother hope to make a living out of animation......I`m sure he can.

WOW!!!! I was drawn into the video from BEGINNING to END!! That is exactly what a great video is supposed to do! I don't see how your brother could be an "amateur" cuz this is practically professional work!
