haha, I like the way you make it looks like adventure movie trailer.
The most
I like were the 1st shot, leaves falling off. So beautiful.
I am not a good animator, but this is what I think.
I maybe wrong, please dont take it too seriously, ok?
The walk, seems weird, I think the shoulder didnt move.
And not enough weight. Is it because your front leg did not really land,
before you move down the COG?
Before he pick up, you cut and match other shot.
I think you should cut in action. Because the character freeze there, doesnt look nice.
Just make him slow out picking.. then cut in action..

I really like it, especially the first shot, so.... beautiful.. seriously!

Please dont take my comments so seriously, because I am just a student,
has not much experience animating too. :)

@MayLow - hey, thanx for your comments. Yes, my character animation is at lowlevel. It is actually my first approach for such a thing. So I need to really practise my characters. However, the main goal of whole challenge was story and storytelling, so I took the *accuracy* of animation as second. Also, the feel of movie trailer was crucial for the challenge. If you like the story and storytelling - that is the best what I can hear :thumbsup:

Your walk cycle is sliding around.

Other than that, I love the opening scene, very well composed.
