My entry for the Storytelling Level Design Challenge 2 over at Worldofleveldesign became runner up
Here are the jury notes:
Visually solid scene.
Follows and captures the story very well.
The idea for 9/11 is risky because it could be done poorly, or it could appear to be a pandering to the masses for votes. Neither of those things happened and the work turned out to be a legitimate recreation. We wish you'd gone outside the lines a little. It fits the narrative but it doesn't really bring anything new to the table.
The WOLD logo, while there, could have been a little more creative.
While the winter theme is apparent, it doesn't stick out quite as much.
The scene captures a human feeling. It was very important to show people in the screenshot, it would not be effective without them. The second screenshot is liberating and powerful. People add to the emotional dynamic of the scene.
I wish to thank Shaul Hadar for creating the wonderfull custom piece of music for the short video.
I'm working on a updated video with better framerate and Shaul is updating his music piece for the video.
