Zoey,
Thank you for giving a voice to so many who are lost or struggling with their size and quest by overcoming so many obstacles. Obstacles that Sierra and Button are so brave and stick together by showing goodness and compassion. What a beautiful and heartfelt journey they embark on.

I really enjoyed the overall story and animation. I would add a little bit more context and explaining in the beginning to setup the story a little more and make it more clear on what the story is suppose to be about. Other than that I would add color but overall it was really done well with the sound affects, drawings, storyline and graphics.

Thank you for the feedback! I wanted to make sure I could squeeze in as much of the story as possible in such a small timeframe, but if it could be a little longer I would have definitely added a longer exposition. Color would’ve been a cool touch, but I didn’t find it entirely necessary so I just left it as is. I could totally see myself continue editing this short in the future though, it was so much fun to work on!

I love all the characteristics and voices of all the Trees. My most favourite was the cute mushroom. You've done a great job!

Aww, I’m happy you liked Buttons! I asked my family members to do the voices of the other characters and I think they did a fantastic job!

I really like how the mushroom uses real science to explain their powers , and I really like how the main character wants to be like her ancestors and grow tall. The music also helps make the journey feel so large and magical . I like the bully characters for posing both a physical and emotional threat on sierra . The great tree is also so terrifying and demands presence . When sierra gets trapped I like how it the sunlight that signals her escape , both being something she needs but also a universal symbol for hope and salvation. A lot of great work here and I good very easily see myself getting some popcorn to watch this story in full

I’m so happy you noticed the motif of light throughout the story! I was trying to have it based on science as much as I could, so I’m glad you enjoyed that! Thank you so much for the great comment! :D

Oh my gosh, the anticipation for this story! It has been an honor to see how your acts have been developing and then to see this final piece. I truly enjoyed getting to see your complete story. The sound effects are such an enhacing part of your short story. They really help to express your character and how they interact with the other characters in your story. I also love the voices! Your story came to a nice, satisfying ending with a very meaningful message for me. I hope one day this could be an animated short or even a movie! I wish you the best with your future as an artist.

The sound was great. The animation inspiration seems to be anime; I love that. I absolutely loved the sound effects and the voices. The ultimatum was good. The story was funny as well.

I have been waiting for this one! It was perfect and you did such a good job getting the time down and keeping the strong story line. I loved the credits and way you drew those too. You have done such a good job every week and have been one of my favorite stories to watch. You did such an awesome job and I sure will miss this class!

This is the final cut of Growing, my short story!

*(Movie trailer voice)*:
Prepare to be transported into a world of trees, where one in particular must set on a quest. This tree’s name is Sierra, a tiny tree with a dream of growing as tall as their ancestors did. Sierra brings along a mushroom, Buttons, who’s small stature holds his big heart! On their journey, Sierra and Buttons are met with big bullies, rough rivers, and frightful foes! Will Sierra be able to grow into the tree they feel destined to become? Sit back, relax, and find out when you watch: Growing

Hope you enjoy it!

This is where the special thanks would go!  I’m assuming they will be a little longer this week, therefore, I designed extra space for them. If there is far more description and special thanks then there is space, this entire box becomes scrollable.

Special Thanks:
