Art Appreciation

Art Appreciation: After getting some inspiration from a book on still-life painting, Benny decides to liven up his walls with a new piece of artwork. However, things don’t go quite as expected, and the outcome leaves us pondering whether the end really does justify the means.

    Hi all, neglected to mention in the credits that Art Appreciation was created with Animation Master, the insanely great software by Hash Inc.

    Easily the nicest because the most fun with a clear story line. I am also a fan and user of Hash’s Animation Master and it’s nice to see it used more and more for professional level animation projects.

    Love it! Original and funny. Cool work.

    Nice one. Besides the 3D look, I like the message: If something negative happens, just change your point of view and your adversity will turn into an asset! I guess it pays to have an open mind. Cool.

    It was a tough choice this week. I could have voted for all three shorts! I enjoyed this short; it reminded me of me, frustration and all, but then making the most of it, although I would have revealed the rest of the brick wall!
