Re: "Buckle up Phone Down" Contest Entry

Quite short but nonetheless you have managed to implement an important message.

I like the sunrise effect. Did you use a flashlight? Also, while the shower scene is a bit static, the water and steam effects work nicely.

The overall animation, however, could use some work. Most of the movements are too slow. It can often be hard to find the right balance when animating–you don't want to make the movements too slow nor do you want to make the movements too fast. I'd recommend checking out forum member Fancypant's video on easing in and easing out. Practice makes perfect.

I fully intend to practice the technique over the summer once exams are done. I realize there were a few flaws with the animation this can be credited to only having two weekends to complete the entire thing. As for good news I won the contest (1st Place!) and am gonna have the film shown on local news stations and on the company's website.
