Now we have met our next deadline we assigned ourselves and have all our animation playblasted and put into imovie, i am currently editing it so that we can see how the film is working together and what needs changed/fixed/altered etc. We have luckily timed our film very well and with 5 second opening and credits at end the whole film comes to the 25 seconds allowed. The animation is coming ever so slightly over 15 seconds but with some editing we can fix that 🙂

Here is the screenshot of the timeline
