    Thanks, that was the idea when Baby jumps on the metal drum, to imitate Luxo, Jr. I considered using that very specific sound effect from Pixar, but thought that would be "too much."

    This is my take on the Ridley Scott Macintosh Super Bowl TV ad from 1984, but I made a few substitutions.

    "Anti-Gravity"

    This is my short film parody of the Sandra Bullock movie "Gravity." Made just for fun, all in Lightwave, comped in AE. Certainly no new ground broken here but hope you like it anyway.

    Thanks! The landscape was pretty simple, with sub-patched surfaces around the cabin, then everything else was added in compositing. See attached images.
