"So let me get this straigt. The logic this bitche uses is " let me kill the mother of the dragon baby so i can become its adoptive mother..." This white ho should just kill herself after all that."
That just totally killed any sad emotions I had coming on. (Thanks lol)

and @Wai-Yu, there are rumors about a video game of this. You can buy the dvd with the original blender files and do it yourself, its opensource

The way she said it, I thought she named it Skillz. That made it a bit lolzy for me, but still a good video outside of that.

Cliche and lacking creativity, but done well outside of that.

my god, how many cliches can you fit into 14 minutes? And Scales!? Worst name for a dragon ever.. This is the least original thing I`ve ever seen. But i suppose the animation was nice.. i guess.. Trying to make a compliment sandwich. "You have smelly dog farts." etc etc

I was kinda hoping that she would jump off of the cliff edge at the end.

Damn, you`re all missing the point...it`s just do what you want, let your feelings guide you...you see, she finds a true love...Also it`s a dragon, so that`s awsome...to the extreme, then she finds what she thinks is her baby dragon and, forgetting the fact that dragons grow up much fatser than humans, much, much faster....She accidently kills her beloved pet and orphans it`s young, thinking that the mother was not....................Spoiler ALERT...................... .......her beloved made it suck for her....but in the end, she got what she wanted, a beloved baby dragon, to train, to ride, and have all sorts of human-dragon fun...so the moral was, do what yoiu want, it may such temporarily, but in the end, all will be well....lol.

I don`t think it was quickly taken away. I think she basically adopted it as her pet, possibly for years.

Based in Amsterdam, but people from around the world worked on this.

The only thing I can say I really felt happy for was the very end, because that`s just one of those kind of cute and redeeming things that`s always there. But I couldn`t help but find myself laughing at the movie when she decides to go on a wild goose chase that spans most of her life over a dragon that she randomly found and tended to before it was quickly taken away. It`s possible I`ve just become hardened and pessimistic, but the sources of emotion just seemed weak.

@CallofKtulu

I could not disagree with you more. I will agree that the plot has been used in various media before, and that the ending was predictable from the get go. But the emotion brought forth from this film is real. I truly did feel happy, concerned, and sad all within the span of 15 minutes.

If you were to compare this 15 minute film to the majority of main line cinema within the last year, it would clearly outshine most.

That may have looked good, but that was one of the worst stories I`ve ever seen. Half of the plot advancements were caused by entirely unnecessary actions, and there was an extremely poor representation of the passing of time. Yeah, they fed off of that at the end, but you should be able to see how they hinted towards the extreme passing of time if you re-watch it. If they don`t, which they didn`t, you end up with a film full of twists that seem uncalled for(despite maintaining an ugly predictability). If they had a better way of showing that, then it`d be stronger, though unbearably predictable. Honestly we`ve seen this story a hundred times, just with slightly different details. It wasn`t exactly striving for innovation.
I just expect more out of the short/indie film industry. This is where we`re supposed to get nice new feelings and ideas that you can`t get from just going to the movies, and yet this person funnels their efforts into some old cliche`d idea.

The interesting fact about this movie is that it has been made using only open-source programs. If you like this, you`ll probably like their previous film,Big Buck Bunny.

@PhantasmFork : It`s the Blender Foundation, don`t know where they`re from tho.
