Oscar Wilde and Monet, an invite
A while back I posted a thread asking your opinion on using unique illustrations styles for computer animation. Finally after much hard work we have created two shorts based on Oscar Wilde and O'Henry's stories. We have given them a unique look and twist, I would like to invite you all to have a look at a preview of In Winter Still and Almond Blossoms.

I would appreciate any feedback you could provide us with. We are a start up and have developed the technology that is used to create these pieces.

Please visit www.auryn.com to view the films.

Thank you for your support.

Regards,

Umesh

Re: Oscar Wilde and Monet, an invite
While it's hard to comment on the overall success of each film based on the previews, I have to commend you for the approach taken with each of the stories, and for the visuals for each -- which, to my untrained eye, are gorgeous (and in the case on VanGogh piece, astounding). These must have taken forever to produce, and the attention to the detail of each artist's visual style is breathtaking.

My curiosity is getting the better ofme; I may very purchase one -- if not both -- of them this weekend for download.

What you offer for preview is superb, I think.

Re: Oscar Wilde and Monet, an invite
The style reminds me of what one company has been doing with "Jane And The Dragon". Their story is done in a style similar to a children's picture book. It's also reminicent of the stuff that's constantly coming out of the National Film Board of Canada.

I recognize the story in "A Winter Still" as "The Selfish Giant" (or a variant) but I couldn't tell what story the second was based upon.
