Need more animation overall. Characters feel very static.


Aside from the alligator at the end the animation feels very stiff. I think it would benefit from some more movement.

I like the idea a lot! And the framing works well!

April Slocombe:

Lovely drawings and subtle movements but the lip sync could be more detailed and the bigger deer remains static while the younger one says his last line. Nevertheless I like the crocodile/alligator coming out of the stream at the end.

Lance Erickson:

The animation in this one seems to be too rigid and stiff.

Daniel Roldan:

Give them more body movement; make them talk with the body so they seem as if they were alive


very nice story...
