  • TROIKA Sci-fi Short Animated Film: A young girl wakes in a crater and seeks to reunite with her friends which proves to be more difficult than she thought.

    This project was very special to me and is my first short animation. Creating this fantasy world and characters has been an amazing experience and as I continue in my career as a 3D artist I'm excited to do even more.

    🔵 A bit too cryptic for me, I enjoyed the visuals but the storyline apparently Escapes Me, I don't understand why the machine attacked her to begin with if it had once been her friend, least that's what I read into the flashbacks.
    Why did she have to remind it (convince it?) to be her friend, why did it forget to begin with, And what of the others, why are they attacking her? Have all the machines gotten amnesia? and does that have something to do with why she woke up in the crater in the first place? There are so many unanswered questions, but I certainly enjoyed the visual aspect.
    Also, PLEASE employ the use of an audio-compressor as there were QUITE a few times I had turned the volume to what I thought was both a satisfying and safe level, and then a sudden burst of over-modulation would nearly take-out my headphones AND my eardrums. I now have ONE ear-drum vibrating in the center of my skull. There were several times that the audio got DANGEROUSLY out of hand, realizing this I had to ride-gain throughout the presentation in order to continue listening at a satisfyingly immersive volume. Most people overuse compressors at first, but judicious use of an audio compressor (Not a limiter) can be your best friend, it can preserve the dynamic without reducing the impact.
    Nice work otherwise though, I wish you wonderful things to come!

    "No Matter How Much A long lost friend or family hurt you Jésus Christ My Savior Can Always Tell You The Truth Regardless On How They Take It And
    My Father In Heaven Can Give You Everlasting Life And In Order To get That Precious Gift Is To BELIEVE In EVERY Word (Scriptures), Ask, Expect, And Share Your Testimony...
    And I Challenge Any Un-Believer To Ask What Your Hearts Desire And Watch What Happens Next."

    I have always pondered what "Troika" meant - now I know. It is what the Ancient Romans called a Triumvirate.

    Holy cow, it took me all the way to the end to finally see the 3rd friend to make up the Troika. It's the jewel/snake around her, and attached to her. About half way through I was wondering when the 3rd friend would show up. I even thought the bright orange spider might have been the 3rd, until her rehabilitated friend blew it up. Very good video, excellent job!

    I am really glad I am not a woman, I dearly love self respecting women, and men for that matter. I have never understood the trans thing, I get it, creating your own little world where anything you say is green is go. Really makes life more simple, but while in the process you have to systematically step on my toes to accomplish such a place, well. That is what we here in the real world, call, personal. Not something I am afraid your familiar with.

    Very well done but I am tired of films that make women into warriors with violent plots, conflict, aggression, and war. Not where I want our world to be or go.

    Very strange in a cool sort of way. Got what was going on but the why of it missed me. Shows great imagination and talent. Very good job lots of promise for the future. I got the feeling the story got a little lost in the creation but that is common for shorts, not enough time for backstory. Would have liked a little more setup in your comments. Hope you stick with it, I got a gut feeling you could do something very special if you do. Be inspired and fill us all with awe.

    I am the late arrival to the party in every sense of the term, having only begun to dream of 3d/VFX in august when I stumbled upon an opportunity to tryout autodesk's 3ds Max 2019 animation & design software - another handicap is that I have scant artistic skills. But I do have this persistent vision. I want to work in animation!
    Your work, "Troika" is further inspiration for my dream. I want to be able toi do what you did Creatively, Artistically and Technically.
    I have an MMORPG game concept I would like to animate with 3d characters, scenes and 'forces' - I'm a quick study so I need some shortcuts to understanding animation and design. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Un homme qui court. 9 months ago

    it s not good. I didn t understand anything and the animation is ultra rigid.
    Most importantly you need to work on the colors : it s way too dark and everything is plain and pale. it s hard to watch and follow the movement. In addition you should do less close up shots during fight scenes, so the viewer can understand what is going on viewing the full scene.
    that being said, I wish you the best for your next projects.
