Maria Robertson:

It took me a replay to understand what the setting was and what was going on, so I would say maybe extend that opening shot a bit before the oyster clamps down.
Nevertheless I really like animation itself, especially the way she responds to the sounds at the end.

Michael Ayers Jr:

The volume is pretty low but nice animation.

Michael Gavin:

Love it.

Anthony Travieso:

love the character. Really nice


Really cool and well drawn! The part where the octopus says "jesus" looks ever so slightly off

Marina Julia:

The animation was great, but where is the sound???

Iqtidar Ali Siddiqui:

must be in top 3 :)


love it!

Clément Pierre:

Very nice animation.
I would just say there is a little bit too much eyes directions between f80 and f120, it makes it a bit unclear. I think it just a matter of the eyes, because the head mouvements are good.
Good job !

Stéphane Sartori:

That one is very good! I'd love to see it colourised and with the sound much louder as I can't actually hear anything.


The winner! Congrats, it looks amazing.

Ben Hall:

No that's so sad! But It's animated so WELL!
