The animation looks pretty nice, but holy scene changes, Cat Woman! I wouldn't have so much of a problem with it if it didn't completely break the 180 degree rule. At 57, cat woman is staged on the left, and batman is staged on the right; then at 58, it completely changes. At 156, you see the character is going towards the left in the picture, but right at 157, she's suddenly going towards the right. The scene change from 178 to 179 works okay since she's still continuing toward the right from the previous scene.
In short, when you're animating with different cameras, make sure it follows the basic rules of shooting.

Amartya Mukherji:

Render quality is good. The cuts are not at all convincing enough. Needs a lot of improvement


Concept is slightly confusing, probably because of the many cameras. Simplifying the concept would improve the shot.

Dan Harriman:

I liked this one. However it just seems a confusingly made clip. The camera cuts are disorientating and you never clearly see that the guy is tied up (had to watch that a few times to see this). The lighting is moody, which is good. You've made some bold choices for the main character's action which I like, but the camera needs to show with much more clarity what is going on. :)
