Sarah Courtright:

The thing I find very jarring is the eye of the scope starting small and zooming in. If the scene started black and then the scope starting at the size it's supposed to be came in from one of the sides and revealed the scene, then you might of had a bit more of a believable scene.

Amanda Such:

Stylistically I feel this one is the most unique and interesting - I like how you animated the water and the idle animations of the characters at the beginning (from frame 0 to about 119) but the style also holds back the animation for the main characters. The faces could be more expressive and the lip sync could be tweaked to fit the words better.

Jordan Crownshaw:

Well the backgrounds and designs in this are certainly unique, they did make me smile XD Great ocean there. The character animation was pretty on point, goes well with the dialogue! Push them a little more, keep the composition a little less flat :)

Branden Blowey:

Creative idea for it haha
