    I was alright.

    I'd recommend keeping the camera more stable and keeping your hand out of the shot.

    Also, shorten the frame speed stuff. It'll make it way more fluent and smooth.

    Not bad, three things you should apply for future videos, though:

    -Keep your hand out of the shot, or crop the video to exclude your hands if you do.

    -Speed up the frame rate. Makes the video much smoother, albeit shorter.

    -Steady your camera and depending on the surface, whichever model/figure is moving. Nothing says stop-motion like a guy who can't stand in one spot as he turns his head.

    But other than that, not bad.

    The hand definitely ruins whatever illusion you're going for. Wait till it's out of the shot before pulling the trigger.

    It was pretty good, but quite frankly, the hand was kind of distracting.
