emceha : This short movie is an allegory. Gdansk is a city in Poland. In 1939 it was a German city named Danzig and had one Polish post office, allowed by Versailles treaty. 1 September 1939, combined forces of SS and Danzig police (I'm sure you noticed German black eagle coat of arms on the giant) attacked the Polish Post Office in Gdansk. They defended themselves for 15 hours, 57 Post office workers were killed, that includes a wife and 10yo daughter of building keeper. Last 4 alive decided to surrender. They were sentenced to death and executed. It proved that fight to the death is an only option. All we can do is die, taking as many of them as we can. Most of the time we just die brutally, achieving nothing, but earning a place in the stories of future Polish generations.

Liam Smith : Good metaphor of what it must have felt like to be a peasant in feudal times, able to be crushed by your noble betters who would have seemed like terrifying, unstoppable giants. The music in the outro shows the true attitude of this studio though.

Patryk : I live in Gdańsk. It's all true.

MrDrew : David and Goliath with realistic mod enabled.

bladykurmen : I live in Gdansk and there was a legend about giant who lived in this city. That's why the top of the St. Mary's Church tower is flat, so the giant could sit and rest. ..but I don't remember the 'squeezing people so hard, they turned into jam' part tho. Great work!

thecultguy : This farmer has clearly never played dark souls

tedrocks : Dat neverending story theme song at the end though...

Waylon Jones : The giant - life, peasant - you

IFibreOpticI : People missing the point completely...this is a studio that experiments, and these are works of experimenting with real time graphics, and using it the create intrigue and shock too. There's no intention of master writing and sorry twists. Jesus. "Experimental' it's in the name.

Ghuul : This is part 1. There should be more. Remember, finally the Teutons lost, the Poles won.

Devorizer : What did that guy seriously think he was gonna do I mean that was natural selection at its finest right there 😂😂

SuperWheatley : All I can think of are the knights that say ni


DOOKINS : Love the premise.  Love the darkness of the giant crushing the man so easily.  Love the mood.   But HATE, like, seriously...  HATE, the CG girl at the end....  Come on guys!!  What?  Couldn't find a female actress who could fit your standards?  She was so obviously CG in her face and hair it completely destroyed the rest of my experience.  I hope Gdansk gets better females.  It's too cool to not give it some more respect of a real actress.

The Art of Horror : Ni !!

klutz395 : I kind of expected the peasant guy to have some sort of powers

Peace Walker : Hhmmm is the message that a oppressive power can feel like a giant that crushes you? And the invading army clearly has money while the farmer doesn't. A small clip with a strong message.

Hibana : There is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, nowhere to live,but to fight and die.

Cosmic Drive : The lady and kid might be killed or taken by the knights. Or the farmer could turn into something powerful like an undead super human or monster. Or could just be dead with someone else in the story being chased by the knights and giant or fighting them both

gutspraygore : This feels more like a technical proof of concept. Like they're testing a photoreal human face pipeline for Unity with the peasant guy. But the woman, though... not so successful.

k b : Why start on 20 different projects at once randomly release 30 seconds to a minute and a half of a story, and then start another new project without finishing any or at least updating an update to an older project in a reasonable timeline. Its getting pretty pointless, kind of like your posting random cut scenes to a video game no one has ever heard of or played. Who the hell cares if its going to take 3-6 months before we see part 2 of project 20, in the mean time here, watch 37 seconds of part 1 of project 45. Tomorrow you'll get to see part 2 of project 19.

sikamika9 : the womans hair behave like she is under water...bad work there

LazyStatic : Ok cool little clip but I really hope to see some of these random short story's become something real. I do enjoy all the comments critiquing the realism of a 2 minuet animated clip about a giant armored warrior. This is why nobody pays attention to youtube comments anymore.

Funkroza : That was some Beowulf shit. I'll wait for more

Askur B. Árnason Nielsen : the woman looked so unrealistic to me, eyes were so enlarged that it definitely dipped into uncanny valley for me

Gabriel Coelho : Music in the end really fits in.

Sean : That hair on the woman is playstation 2 era.

Electronic AIDS : I must say I really liked it. I dont think that plots are important, as long as you create an atmosphere.

TheNinjaMarmot : That was cruel... I mean the neverending song at the end... can't stop laughing after a horrific scene.

NoLongo : Here’s an interesting world with drama. And you’re never going to see it again.

afrikiran : This animation is outstanding! Oats is a game changer in production.

slaction : Oats should get into the business of creating over hyped trailers for games at E3 that eventually go on to disappoint.

Arek Zegarek : Gdańsk zawsze polski!!!!

Lord Akira : These Skyrim mods are getting out of hand

Mack Lee : Always 'testing the water'. Look we love all your films, now make them full length dammit!

emanuel trisnajati : i thought the giant was gonna be harrypottered or something

Mike Heffernan : What a scream. Nice CGI. The woman was dodgy though.

Tiger H. Lore : He put up a great fight.

Andrey Bondarenko : This video could be a perfect commercial clip for some shampoo. The hair of the woman is ridiculously clean and smooth.

Julien BOYER : Characters really look bad, sorry. You need to improve hairs, faces and a few textures, especially on the woman. She looks terrible.

Dr Baarish : Oats Studios is best in making Videos with no point....

DrBreezeAir : What does a Polish city have to do with all of this?

rolf ski : Rather pointless footage, at least give the plot an interesting twist. No twist being the "twist" here just degenerates it to empty footage.


Bojan Babic : The same people hating this are the same people that call themselves fans of the director just because they saw District 9.

There Is No Sandwich : No one expects the Spanish Inquisition

THEKINGOFMETROPOLIS : Its great to show your CGI capabilities but you should really incorporate at least SOME love action in these or go full live action with CGI as support. The reason why people love you is how you blend real footage and CGI so well.

Mr. Communist : Ansowme!!!

Ork Bo : Что хотел этим сказать автор ролика? Что поляки хреново защищали Гданьск?

Sigrid : What was this rendered in? Was this done in Unity like Adam: The Mirror?
