Mostly referring to "ripping" accusations
Scarydoll is right, as far as I see it there are no direct similarities between his flash short and my "Smile!", except a "smile" in the title. Aloneinthedark, thank you for your will of defending my intellectual property, yet I don't think it's necessary here... although the smiley b/w sunrise which can be seen a quarter second at the very ending sure looked totalitarian ;) ...
Jokes aside, as the author said, that's different stuff, "from different barrel" as I'd normally say in Polish.
A few words about the flash itself, I find it a very witty fairy tale, as far as it could've been told in 10 seconds. If not the contest specification, I wouldn't find this form a good one at all, hastiness doesn't do grim fairy tales very well. But considering it just had to be done this way, you handled it quite well.
Great job, as always. I always enjoy a new movie of yours. Good luck on the contest. Now, get to something bigger :)
