"Hmm where do I start. As an animator myself the only redeeming feature of this collage of videos is watching the snowman go after his bowtie..otherwise go make coffee. Most of the animation on this dvd simply does not make sense. The last animation (bonus) is simply fantastic rendering..no storyline though. Skip it and buy all the others Odyssey put out. They are mouth watering."
Buy this one for Bingo alone!

"This is the best yet of the Mind's Eye series. The video quality on many of the animations are very crisp, unlike previous releases and the quality of the work is generally better than the most of the previous releases. While this collection still contains the prerequisite cheeseball student projects and Pixar parodies, the real shining star in this collection is the multi-award winning surrealistic Bingo by Chris Landreth and Alias/Wavefront. Even if this collection contained only this one animation, it would be well worth the price for any animation fan. Bingo was animated during the development process of Alias Maya and it was clear that Landreth and Co. aimed to show off what their new software could do. The attention to detail is stunning. All I can say is Landreth RULEZZZ! Other animations I liked are Pets (a hilarious animation done in the style of Nick Park's Creature Comforts), Vache Folle, The Persecution, and a few others which I can't remember right now."
Not What I expected

"I was expecting a flowing visual story with interesting shapes blended with many colors. I must be really off on what computer animation means being that this DVD was computer animation. I was very disappointed and feel that I wasted my money. I didn't even watch the entire thing. I just kept skipping through it. There were break ups of the DVD in short skits that weren't interesting, and the music was awful...kind of reminded me of elevator music. Unless you just have the money to blow and want a odd DVD, leaving you with little knowledge and experience to add to your life...I suggest something like Dinosaurs or Fantasia. This will be a HUGE disappointment for those who are looking for some type of uplifting feeling or think this could be touching."
