Eric Raffle:

not enough movement on your characters, you needed more action and poses but nice modeling

Martin Strom:

I wish there could have been more movements on them. Now they move more like animatronics then real life creatures. The sharks eyes looks pretty "dead" compare to the fish.

John Jefferson:


- Models look nice

- They are facing each other


- Weird lines things from Maya shoudn't be there in a final playblast, so next time do something about that.

- Weird rotation issues with the feet.

- Barely Animated.

Justin Jones:

Are there lasers coming out of that shark's head?! Sorry, I had to go there. Not a bad job anyways.

Nicole Brettell:

Reminds me of Finding Nemo, where the sharks are friendly to fish.

Maurice Haywood Jr.:

Sebastian Vasquez:

Ice floor, nice models
