great work from HBC as usual, but most of all it was the soundtrack that did it for me <3

Not really impressed. Doesn't compare to HBC stuff I've seen before in any area.
added on the 2010-08-08 03:08:11 by JDruid JDruid
Same opinion as JDruid.
Direction and execution as excellent as usual, but somehow those are getting boring.

While usually HBC animations are simply a lot of fun to watch in addition to being gorgeously rendered, this one seemed to be mostly a showoff of some nice 3D rendering and effects with little to show besides it (apart from the awesome, awesome soundtrack). I didn't like it very much.

ok when it finaly kicks in it's some funky ass shit, love that soundtrack and love the animation :)
rulezadded on the 2010-08-08 04:20:35 by keito keito
I'd have to agree with those piggie people, it misses the usual crazy direction, funny presentation of past HBC anims (though it has still good presentation and great gfx, but not in the same spontanity (can't find the word) of other HBC anims). Still a thumbs up because this is still above good.

"these colours, the story, the music! you did it again!"

What story?

Felt more like a showreel, not the usual maxon team stuff. BIG turndown :(

looks like youre out of ideas =(. thumb goes for the music

The music was really good, and you could see a lot of new stuff they're experimenting with which will sure lead to even greater stuff in the future... but this one is for the music
rulezadded on the 2010-08-08 11:57:18 by thec thec
yay, pure HBC style <3
rulezadded on the 2010-08-08 12:30:53 by Saga Musix Saga Musix
Not as striking as the hbc videos of old (er..), but still better than 90% of whatever else was in that compo.
rulezadded on the 2010-08-08 13:16:19 by tomaes tomaes
huh? what story? was there a story? other than a space ship flying around and things getting blown up? i'm not impressed. this doesn't even have very impressive visuals. nice rendering? where? looks quite bland to me.

i used to be a fan but i'm really not impressed with this one...

story or no story, it's rare to see something so aesthetically pleasing as this.

So impressive and stylish!! The colours and textures are so soothing and look so tasty.

HBC really do have a trademark style here and it's beautiful!

hm... just another space-wild with additional hbc pimpage
rulezadded on the 2010-08-08 23:50:28 by T$ T$
Cute, good music and some funny scenes...but overall it was a little bland. Still a nice prod...but I think you have been successfully challenged.

Awesome! HBC quality, as usually :) Colors and ending reminds me "Bounce to Space"

HBC quality. Which means, obvious thumb-up :)

try holding ALT and hit 3 on your numblock, then release ALT ;)
or just give it a CDC, hehe :)=

It looks good and all, but for the first time I find myself not loving an HBC-prod. The soundtrack is also strangely disconnected and "all over the place". Weird.
added on the 2010-08-10 08:34:26 by gloom gloom
Nice, but not spectacular. I have to say I didn't like it nearly as much as other HBC prods.
added on the 2010-08-10 08:43:41 by DiamonDie DiamonDie
What gloom + diamondie said, but the quality is still more than high enough to earn a thumb up.

how this couldn't make place one is beyond me. that having said and while still the modeling, animation and that great soundtrack are top notch, this time I didn't feel those coming together quite that well compared to killers such as field trip. especially the first spacey part didn't really fit the 0.5bit cheese style of playful time scratching slow-motion impact madness. might have been a difficult concept though.

disappointed i was. deserved 3th, so displeased i was to see how this group can make something like this.

but it's good anyway.

It looks pretty nice and sounds ok, but there's very little in it to catch my interest.

Starts to live after 1 1/2 minutes. All in all, it's okay i think.

Great as always HBC!

by the way..

Vocal: "You move around" from this demo:


rulezadded on the 2010-08-15 16:31:38 by magic magic
magic: yes, but the original song was released before that demo
added on the 2010-08-15 16:35:48 by noby noby
magic & noby: Virgill's Artcity was made before my original version of the song used in this film. I had asked Virgill years ago for the samples so that I could remix his original. I did remix Artcity, but also made a few other tunes where I used his vocals - including this one.
