What a clever idea to make the fishies move! This is a real treat and as always, your videos “bring it to life.”

You made me smile :-)

Great! You did it again. I could imagine how much imagination, focus, and forsight you have not to mention the attention to detail. It’s like the preplanning in animation for the movies. One has to know which part moves in what way and when. Great! Will be looking forward to seeing more fascinating and entertaing pieces of work.
