The server the high quality version is on is quite fast, so you 56kers shouldn’t be caused too much greif.

A devoted reverence to Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Cask of Amontillado” which is worked out very well though the performance of your seiyuu’s (voice actors) is abstruse (difficult to understand) betimes. Comparable with some of my words but also in means of acoustics and engagement. I appreciate the high resolution and quality of your film.
Nevertheless, a very confusing and clueless story for those who are not adepted with its topic or even the English language. It should include English subtitles and a heterodiegetic (third-person) narrator with some explicating illustrations.
“Pass your hand,” I said, “over the wall; you cannot help feeling the nitre. Indeed it is VERY damp. Once more let me IMPLORE you to return. No? Then I must positively leave you. But I must first render you all the little attentions in my power.”
“The Amontillado!” ejaculated my friend, not yet recovered from his astonishment.
“True,” I replied; “the Amontillado.”
As I said these words I busied myself among the pile of bones of which I have before spoken. Throwing them aside, I soon uncovered a quantity of building stone and mortar. With these materials and with the aid of my trowel, I began vigorously to wall up the entrance of the niche.
I had scarcely laid the first tier of my masonry when I discovered that the intoxication of Fortunato had in a great measure worn off. The earliest indication I had of this was a low moaning cry from the depth of the recess. It was NOT the cry of a drunken man. There was then a long and obstinate silence. I laid the second tier, and the third, and the fourth; and then I heard the furious vibrations of the chain. The noise lasted for several minutes, during which, that I might hearken to it with the more satisfaction, I ceased my labours and sat down upon the bones. When at last the clanking subsided , I resumed the trowel, and finished without interruption the fifth, the sixth, and the seventh tier. The wall was now nearly upon a level with my breast. I again paused, and holding the flambeaux over the mason-work, threw a few feeble rays upon the figure within.
A succession of loud and shrill screams, bursting suddenly from the throat of the chained form, seemed to thrust me violently back. For a brief moment I hesitated — I trembled. Unsheathing my rapier, I began to grope with it about the recess; but the thought of an instant reassured me. I placed my hand upon the solid fabric of the catacombs , and felt satisfied. I reapproached the wall. I replied to the yells of him who clamoured. I reechoed — I aided — I surpassed them in volume and in strength. I did this, and the clamourer grew still.”
By the way, Fortunato looked like a hustled and invalidated baby in this scene. The animation was too slow in my opinion.
“And the motto?”
“Nemo me impune lacessit.” (No one provokes me with impunity.)

The animation was really good.Did you use the LogiTech Quickcam Pro 4000?I’m dying to get that cam! :evil I understood the story,since I read the poem before. This is just an idea,but you coulda updated the diologue to fit today’s standerd,but it’s good the way it is.You’re sound quality is better than mine.
Did you have fun filming this movie?
A very good film,although I woulda liked to know why the main character wanted to kill Fortunato. 8/10December 1, 2003 at 2:13 pm #24287
