Director's Comments

This was my entry for THAC 6. The movie was done in about 12 hours, and it is supposed to be a prequel to Victim.

Staff Review

Randy Yard:
Take a three-minute story and tell it in one, and the result will closely resemble this film. The THAC format forced the director to tell this story a little faster than would have been ideal, and the result is a film that feels somewhat rushed and never really allows the viewer to get emotionally immersed. Otherwise, the story itself is a good concept, and the animation and other technical qualities do a fine job of building on that foundation. Add in the director's trademark awesome props, and though it's not everything it might have been given a longer time limit, it's definitely worth a look.
