Brian W.:

This has a lot going for it. I love the artwork, animation, and character stylization.

However, I find the story incomprehensible. I have no idea what that is next to the piano at the end. And the composited crab (which, I guess, turned out not to be a hoax?) is a severe jolt that interrupts an otherwise exquisitely timed piece.

But it's an animation competition, so high marks from me. Please keep it up.
