That was really quite phenomenal, really really well done.
I was actually a little angry at this fictional girl for killing this fictional 'beast' which, for an animation of 7 minutes long is impressive to say the least, the empathy that you evoked.

Real good job.

Splendid. Just splendid. The animation, narrator and sounds: All top notch. A tremendous amount of effort must have gone into this. There must have been a fair amount of thought that was invested into the storyboarding. I nearly forgot about the scream on the ship when I was nearing the end of the animation.

Thank you for sharing this with us.
