Darion D'Anjou : wow. i really loved this short. for me no dialogue forces the storyteller to find visual ways to tell a pretty complex story in this case. very impressive.

Red Coat : Another brilliant!!! So much talent, such good stories, its a Sci Fi at its most beautiful and best.

Jody Fulford : Plot continues.... Rains don't quit until everything is under water. Along comes Kevin Costner.

Pennine Lad : Another classic that could be a much bigger project if someone had the faith to run with it. Good luck! Still fully loving "Dust". Keep up the awesome work people! (& thank you!)

D Cat : I was reading a bit about the making of this short. In spite of the troubles, the animators, sound, writers and composer all have put together a wonderful story. Your passion shows through

Joshua Krystek : One of the best shorts I've watched

Floyd Looney : Too bad about that village depending on the airliner, all those dead dehydrated children.

Lawrence Kownacki : Why are all these new Sci-fi ideas showing only dystopian futures? There should be themes showing cool, inspiring, what's possible etc.

MIke Haalsvoorson : Glad I finally watched. Kept passing it by because the pic for the video looked like Kim Jon Un behind binoculars.

Welsh Wookie : superb !

Wayne Clarkson : That is a totally amazing short film loved it.

Dan Harmon : How incredibly clueless. If the Earth had lost that much surface water everyone would have to live 24/7 in survival suits. Hell, I doubt those planes would even fly with the atmosphere being that thin either. Etc, etc, etc...

THECRAZYNARWHAL34 : Great short, the planes looked awesome

Jason Price : Great animation but I am growing weary of these eco-end of the world stories that take completely impossible starting points. The atmospheric carrying capacity if it was all 35 C is nowhere close to enough to hold all the water that is in all the oceans. Yes, I am nit picking. Yes, I will continue to. Great scifi is great because it starts from a point of plausibility and then wraps it in a moral play.

Mike Btrfld : I live in the driest state in America, Nevada. We used to have aquatic dinosaurs in a vast inland sea. Then, 16,000 years ago the Sierras rose up, and turned us into a desert. Really enjoyed this movie!

MaximaJ31 : This whole story line and idea is amazing

Dude Itsjeff : You get an a+ on animation. But why was everybody shooting at each other? I didn’t get that part. I’m sure there’s a reasonable explanation it’s just weird they didn’t say.

Madness by Design : Brilliant. From beginning to end, it engages, and doesn't let up. Well done! The few naysayers here are apparently unfamiliar with cloud seeding, unable to grasp the concept of fighting for resources, or don't like good storytelling.

TurnTimeTable : One of the very best shorts I've ever seen. Very moving and meaningful.

fuldk : Dumb disjointed flim...yuk

Zogg from Betelgeuse : Are we sure we know who are actually the bad guys in this story? Let's see: We have a) a dry, post-apocalyptic world, obviously after some (probably global) climate catastrophe, and b) Some VERY advanced, seemingly magic weather manipulating technology, based on a strange yellow fog that triggers a large scale atmospheric chain reaction. (The sudden appearance of a hydrogen compound in the atmosphere suggests some kind of cold fission.) It is extremely unlikely that such a sophisticated technology has been developed after the catastrophe in a society struggling to survive, You don't develop cold fission in a makeshift lab in a garage. However. it would be much more likely that the technology dates back from before the global disaster. From there, it' wouldn't be much of a stretch to assume that said technology was actually the very cause of the catastrophe. In other words: In an attempt to "improve" the climate, mankind toyed with powers it couldn't control. In the aftermath of those events, it's safe to assume that the continued usage of weather manipulation technology would be if not illegal, so at least morally reprehensible. On the other hand, merely harvesting atmospheric water would be much less dangerous, and possibly just a common way to provide water for the survival of the population. In other words, the lonely pilot with his climate manipulation device is the bad guy here, and the harvesters are simply enforcing the law, and - more importantly - desperately trying to prevent an irresponsible jerk from repeating the errors of the past and messing up the climate even worse by triggering another uncontrollable chain reaction, possibly pushing mankind further towards extinction. In the tragic end, our brave heroes destroy the villain's aircraft but ultimately fail in preventing the disaster; the chain reaction is triggered, and the film ends with the shocked reaction of the inhabitant of the lighthouse who finds the plan of the diluvian device, sees the uncontrollably rising sea level and realises what just happened, possibly thinking "Oh no, not again!"

Marty Smith : The RainMaker would make much more sense to me as a title

Proxydus gaming : Very nice.

tallkevin01 : Yes! Lucas Martell!

Marvin Kitfox : This was the most well-made piece of shit I've ever seen. Beautiful animation, amazing characterization of the virtual actors, and the base storyline is scraped from the haemorroids of lucifer's ass, then sprinkled with with a fairy dust of essence of deceit.

Tim Brennan : The animation is great, but the SJWs are killing science fiction.

Robin Stone : 10 out of 10

John Langley : Awesomely done!

ShartFight DeathMatch 8000 : 10 minute tear jerker.

Mercurion : Brilliant is an understatement. This is an excellent message. Thanks for the share!

Where Is Faf? : Simply brilliant. Keep up the great work!

RowDogSA : Brilliant short! Great thing about CG is you can create whatever you want. It doesn't have to be realistic or logical. If it touches your emotions, it has done its job. Great work. Well done.

Kefta 4ever : Great short film. Didn't even need dialog.

bmdiver09 : Just awesome

Philip Rhoades P : Just fantastic realism! Amazing . .

Elizabeth Stetler : Excellent story

fabian tolano : Now! That's a good one, can anyone imagine if that would be true. Water is the most beautiful thing in the world.

Ziyaulla Sherif : Could be a feature film.. Peak of creativity..

Bilal Hijjawi : Fascinating art. Animation style reminds me of a Tin Tin magazine comic series from the 70s but sadly can't remember the name.

Ramon Mata : Superb animation!

LostOnThePrairie : Loved this film, very well done to all involved

Jason Smith : Excellent

michael raynor : 1 best little short sci-fi's I've seen. Although I never agree with the hero dying in that manner in the end
