Brown Anchor

Great motion design. My only problem is that the music nearly washed out the Voice Over.

George Avena

This was a clever and fun animation to watch. The motion design was very smooth and easy to watch. The entire video was easy to watch because it wasn’t over loaded with images and kept me into the subject being talked about instead of being lost in the images. The voice was easy to listen to and understandable. I do have to agree with Brown Anchor in that the music should have been brought down a little lower because the music almost washes out the voice. Other than the music being a little too loud, the music went really well with the video because it brought a sense of simplicity to the entire piece. The music made me feel very relaxed, as if I was having fun learning something in a classroom. The lime color of the background and the harshness of the black color of the animation is very soothing and pleasing to the eye because of the contrast of the colors. I also thought the color was very clever in that it reminds me of gaseous expulsion of malodorous intent. I very much enjoyed the entirety of the video and was fun to watch.
