  • That was weirdly gripping. I especially like how the eyes on Scooty were done.

    Also the fact that he just kept throwing the food on the ground rather than eating it. Superb work.
  • Wait a minute I thought Scooty was a movie so you're telling me it took him 3 years to make this incredible short? That's dedication. Respect. 💯💯

    I love how character development happened in under 18 minutes it looks so bizarre but funny and I enjoyed it.
    Great short, you guys should seriously consider making a full length movie.

    I love it when someone actually makes something with all of their talent, its usually a couple of seconds then a half hour tutorial but Peter has put it all together in an amazing short film. Great great work Ian Hubert and Peter are the kings.
  • 14:07 - 14:10 is genuinely one of the prettiest shots I've seen outside of a Wes Anderson movie. Dressing him in all red was such a good move, and the score cutting out as it hits the slow-mo really drives the action in this whole scene. You get that frantic build as he's forming a plan, then it's do-or-die time and the music holds just as the audience holds their breath, in anticipation of the success or failure of the jump.

    My mind is officially blown Peter, this was so worth the effort you put into this. Thanks for sharing this with the world 🙏🏾
  • @bodhyplees
    I love Peter's work. This looks amazing!!! and unbelievable that it is made in the FREE software blender.
  • @xaviwashere_
    Bro, that was better than most Hollywood movies.
  • @karachter
    this is insane, loved every second, so much emotion displayed in under 20 minutes!
  • @markoboychuk
    Peter is pure talent. Mad respect for what was able to create here. Can't wait to see that the future holds!
  • I watched the corridor breakdown first and I have to say… I didn’t even notice the box effects you guys talked about, despite knowing they were a little janky. They just flowed and I was immersed. Great job to everyone who worked on it!
  • This is a masterpiece in every aspect possible! The lighting, sound effects, visual effects, storytelling, composing, and everything else is just AMAZING! You guys rock!
  • You know, I think the thing I'm most impressed by, is not actually the visuals, but something that wasn't touched on in the video on Corridor Crew at all, the music score! It's phenominal for a piece like this. I can only assume it was done using digital VST's, but it sounds as if it could've been a live recorded orchestra! And the quality of the music itself, Mr Squires is a very talented composer!
  • The fact that he did this shot for shot pretty much by himself is amazing, nice work!
  • @alansong81
    Peter France, from a intern to a director, what a journey.
  • @joetheman74
    Congrats on this. It's amazing how you were able to make me care about the fate of these two characters, especially one being a robot made from scooters during a lightning strike, in a short 18 minute flick. Great job.
  • Wow, just wow. Another amazing creation by Peter that is just unbelievably well done. Amazing props to everyone who worked on this project.
  • @komi-origami
    This is basically what I would expect from a triple A film. Literally flawless, and it’s such a great story too!
    An 18 minute short with an entirely 3D character. Are you kidding me? Amazing.

    This feeling like a big budget movie, awesome job Peter so inspiring
