This cartoon was my first real attempt at anything longer than a minute. The project was ambitious and there are still a lot of things I could have fixed, but here it is.

Very nice, I actually really like'd this. The music sort of push'd me away but, the general idea was what really entertain'd me.

Very cool! I love the visual direction of the whole thing, every camera angle seemed super appropriate and the art design on everything really fit the overall theme of imagination.
The story was simple, but it worked, and I really love the choice of music at the end.

Despite the choice of music, I think some of the sound effects were a bit distracting. That super-realistic helicopter sound seemed out of place, and the cartoon boings & boops just really took me out of the fantastical elements of the the story & visuals. Perhaps some of the sound effects could have been mixed better, as well. You should definitely look into using left & right channel panning, fading, and volume to your advantage.
Some of the motion seemed a bit awkward as well (especially that walk cycle), but that's a minor point, as I feel the movement worked with your choice of art style.

Overall, you do a great job of creating an interesting fantasy world, and it's only somewhat diminished by the audio design. I definitely enjoyed it and i'm definitely interested to see what you do next :)

I definitely see potential in your art! The brief cameos, while kinda funny, did take me out of the story a little bit. But I really feel the dreams are very dream-like, and the transitions are nicely implemented.

Beautiful animation. At the end I'm not sure what's a dream and what isn't; what purpose it all has, but it's an inspiring piece. All the drawn objects look great as well, and the theme is imaginative, reminds me a bit of Laputa - Castle in the Sky, both of the characters and the junktheme. Nice work!
