AWESOME!!!!

Huge congratulations man!! This came out amazing!! So much coolness! And I never realized Romeo and Juliet was based on this myth (well to be fair, I had never even heard of this one before).

Congratulations Uba! We had close to a full house tonight… The audience applauded after every film — including yours. :) It's a really ambitious film, and the more I watch it, the more I like it. Tonight I was struck by the way you had the light shine on the tomb, then on the tree... A very stage-theater sort of effect. You have a number of moments where you break away from strict puppet film realism to something stylized — all of which is very strong. The lovers' shadows on the wall, as they're talking to each other through the crack... That was another nice touch I picked up on tonight. I'm proud of you!

Congratulations, Jeffery!

I love the way you incorporated the shadows of the hands on the wall, representing the families, that grabbed the lovers apart. Very theatrical and very very cool in this story!

I love the tale of how mulberries got their blood rich color.

Super nice job on all the set work, especially the tree.

Loved the quality narration.

Oh, and another truly brilliant theatrical moment was when the god(?) is reading back the thread of the story how the sound/static ends as this story's thread was severed. Very effective!

You are such a great story teller, ubaJ

Thank you Shelleybean! I think I've always leaned toward stage theatrics with my shorts but I was most conscious of it with this one, maybe because it is such a "Shakespearian" story. I even at one point toyed with the idea of doing the "red ribbon" blood for the death scenes but didnt feel like it fit with the blood drenched veil or 'paint on glass' mulberry bit...

congratulations - and me deepest Respect! and wow and yes: I am deeply touched.
You reached another peak/milestone in your creative path.

The storytelling in images and the amount of storytelling told just with images is really grand - the spoken words are sometimes even... how to say... "I know, I know, go on with the story !" - its good to have the story told, but it works perfectly without words too (I guess; knowing the story and seeing your interpretation with sound shut down... and remembering what I just heard)...

Another great piece from the Tuba-Shed - and another mark reached in a constantly progression.

Oh - on the non-technically front: still got an aching heart from the story. The clipping of the string in the end really clipped off a piece of...

Touching.
