Wei Wang:

i like the body shake on "other"

Danny Kneip:

Beautiful work! Great expressions and movement. I really wish the fish were closer together so we could better see your talent as an animator. The composition as it is puts the bad guy way in the distance, and based on the audio, he should be closer, overpowering her (in my opinion). Or the camera should be closer to him so we can really feel his awfulness. As it is, way in the distance, he's not such a threat.

Mohamed Javith:

it's super great, good job!

Aaron Rivera:

Having flashbacks to Finding Nemo. Great job! I do think sometimes the movement is a little faster than it would be in water, like the fins moves side to side or up and down without moving the rest of the body that much, when in reality that would change the entire pose if only slightly, or even propel them forward at the speed they're moving. But the acting is great and expression is great and all the body language is spot on. Great job!


We have our winner here! The end is a bit quirky but the rest is pure awesome!
