Olympiads: Faster, Higher, Stronger is my student thesis film that I made during my fourth year at Sheridan College. So far it has been screened only a few times for industry professionals, where it received a positive response and received a couple of awards. It was a big project about a year in the making, and it has been one heck of a ride. This is definitely one of the biggest projects I have ever taken on, and looking back Im pretty amazed that I managed to get it all done. When I first started this my goal was to keep it under 1 minute and 40 seconds, because I felt that anything longer would be too much to handle. That quickly spiralled out of control into the 2 minutes and 40 second video that exists today. it was definitely stressful as for a while I was worried I wouldn't get it done. There was a lot of animation and a lot of render heavy elements such as fur and grass (the whole film took a month just to render).

Anyway, I hope you all like it. If you have any questions please feel free to let me know, I'll probably be posting some videos showing the process at some point (i.e. initial storyboards, shot progression, etc.).

This fantastic piece has a fun story, wonderful animation style, and has been a long time coming. With a month-long render, it certainly is worth your time to take a look!

This was really good! :clap:

Hard work pays off well! And it's incredible thinking this entire thing took a month to render :0

Now I understand why Pixar and such companies use render farms :)

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. And yeah, there's no way pixar could do what they do without render farms. Without them movies would take decades to render.

Yeah, and they would be a lot less rich if people couldn't see their films XD
