Puffin spotting on Cannon Beach - Animation

I would like one day to be able to create a “real” animated scene, with characters/environment animation etc, this time I tried to add the voice acting and to sync the pop-ups to the audio.

(Activate the audio for a better experience)

Based on a Zoe Persico’s illustration :

Very neat story! I really like your idea for showing dialogue with the speech bubbles. :slight_smile:

One thought — while I was watching, I noticed that the speech bubbles seem to originate from the right. I especially saw it when the bubbles were disappearing and they flashed to the right for a split second. Certainly not a bad thing, but perhaps localizing their origin so it looks like they pop out near the person speaking could help? Something to consider :slightly_smiling_face:

Well done overall!

You know, now that I’m watching it a second time, I’m find the bubbles are less noticeable, so maybe it’s not as big of a deal as I first thought… :man_shrugging:
