Very good art direction. Design, colors and effects are very nicely done. Good job!
However, this short suffers from a disease I'd like to call the "CG Camera Move Syndrome". You see because it's so easy, fast and cheap to move the camera around in CG films it seems to me that every one wants to do it, the camera is never still, it's always moving around and sometimes it hurts the film.
In live action films, it always takes more effort, time and money to shoot a scene with the camera moving, so directors only use those shots when it really helps the scene and the story.
If you look at some of the good CG animated films you can see that they usually try to keep the camera as invisible as possible, mostly going for that live action camera feel, even when they use a cam move, it's not a crazy complicated move, it's more often than not a simple move like a dolly or a crane like we see in live action. Watch Monsters Inc. or Toy Story or even The Incredibles and pay special attention to the camera, it only moves around when there's a good reason for it.
To borrow a line from Ratatouille, "Just because you can move the camera in CG, it doesn't mean that you should." :)

Thanks for the reply. I can understand your point of view, in fact probably you have some reason, ....but in this case I dont want to tell a story, is just want to share a feeling. I think the NO movement of a camera its justified because of dialogs, or maybe it shouldnt move. In this teaser the camera dance with the fairy and the girl, the spectator involves in these actions....or that was my purpose. Anyway, thanks.

The model is my little cousin in real life. She suits very well with my idea....
