Wow!! That's just.... Wow!! There is an incredible amount of detail in there! I personally thought the angles, directing and pacing were spot on.

I'm only starting out and literally only with 2D cartoon animation, not even close to anything like this! Good work all of you.

Quick question, what video editing software did you use for the credits? I liked the style in the end credits as well, very professional.

The end credits was made by my teammate Tatenda, he used Adobe After effects for it :). We also created our 2D animatic in Toonboom not sure if you are familiar with the software.

Thank you - I did consider Toon Boom Studio at one point but swayed to Anime Studio Pro in the end. I'll have to keep looking on the video editing software, Adobe After Effect would be a bit of an extreme luxury for me just starting out and just as a hobby!!

The lighting effects and special effects look great. But you already know from their Endless movie. The facial expressions of the characters looks very good. Especially the face of the witch I find the best produced and animated. Only by the hair of the witch movement kinda strange look. Generally, I find that you have to replay the movie uses a little bit dark and serious business, but everybody gets the characters in funny cartoon appearance.
