The one with the list

Although you might not believe me when I say/write this now, but I have constantly been thinking about a possible title for my upcoming 3D animated short movie. Besides the “awesome” amount of other work I had to do I thought about possibilities and found (n)one.

I have thought about it during the weeks and I came up with a really short list – which nevertheless makes the task of naming extremely hard:

A title needs

Although one could get the opposite impression due to some “lack” of recent updates in this blog, I in fact have worked on my 3D short project. Really. Or better: tried to work on it because I didn’t solve anything. Besides some other unsoved “things”(don’t worry, will write about them) one is the fact that I am searching for an appropriate title for my 3D short.

My goal for this 3D short is to find a title that not only fits the mood but also nails it down. And of course it should be a title that is not used that much time on the internets so the “competition” is low. As you can see, this is quite a goal I set for myself.
