This is my first short film created for my major project at university. It follows the life of a mayfly who dreams big. However the reality of what is to come is not what he imagined. Hope you all enjoy. All feedback and criticism welcome.

This is pretty good, loved the beginning, the middle, but then end, a bit less so, because you don't really see well what occurs, and let's face it, if the end is meant to be gruesome dark humor, you don't censor it. Still, this was lovely and well made in general, and worth a watch and a decent rating. Anyone who gives this less than 3 stars probably does it cause they hate the ending, which is a dumb reason.

Thank you very much for your feedback. What do you think would work better for the end? More close up to the character?

Color isn't too great. But a 3d animated film on ng is a bit unique.

Thanks a bunch :) yeah you are right the colour needs some work, especially at the start and underwater.

I like it! The visual art style is very good for your first animation and the story is pretty neat too (even though I still think that it's a bit too short, but whatever xdd)
Well done on this project, keep going ;3

Thank you so much! Yeah I agree it is a little short. Had to cut a fair few shots with the time restriction. Might work on them and add them add. Feel like it might help with the pacing.
