Alchemy is a short animation made in Blender by Jason Pierce.You don't need a great target and a long movie to make something good. I like how well the story is put on scene. Maybe some of character animation scenes are not so great but in general is a success. Is a good and inspiring animation for beginners.
Personally, I like the scene when The Mad Scientist go up and down on stairs with his lamp, and inside laboratory I like the look of his glasses, the glass bottles and the candle.
