  1. Holy crap I absolutely love your film. The story, the design and the colours are wonderful. :)
    If I were to nitpick about anything it would be that the animation is a bit choppy in some parts, but other than that, I love it! :)

    1. Thank you very much! I'm so happy you enjoyed it! =)

      Yes, for this film the animation is definitely choppy due to deadline stress. I hope it didn't pull you out of the film while watching! I tried my best to make it as consistent as possible.

    2. It was only a minor flaw. The film was overall really good!
      Also, as a bird owner, I've found that the way you've treated the eagle character was perfect. :)

    1. Only semi, and if it's a limited animation done right. :P
      Haha but I'm sure that the time constraint to finish the film was at fault here. It's a minor flaw really, when the overall film is really solid. :)

  6. Wow, I love your film. The character design, colors, plot, and the gestures made by the two characters were totally endearing. This left me feeling very inspired and happy. Your characters are made up of simple shapes rather than a lot of lines -- it's amazing how so much expression was communicated through beautiful simplicity. The head-cock near the very end won my heart! Great, great job and congrats :)

  9. j'aime beaucoup le traitement du film et le chara design. juste un petit bemol, l'animation qui manque de fluidité. Sinon bravo!
