    Re: fair comment

    LOL, made me laugh.

    I'd maybe make it more obvious that the stereo is going off ( I think it's the stereo), and maybe stick in a few close-up shots of eyes looking in the mirror.
    Not sure how much work is involved in rendering the 3d scenese either, but some alpha blending on the headlights ,so they fade into nothing, either with a gradient fill or a fuzzy blurred cone saved as .png would look more realistic, as would some more colour on the buildings, maybe some lit windows, lamps, streetlights and a lot more colour.

    Then the transition from safe town into scary countryside would be more dramatic.

    But still works okay as it is, I'd only change if you are still looking to add/tweak things.

    WOH ! that is a sweet idea: I love the idea with the lights and making a safe town by contrast.

    Will try the close ups too .

    Thanks for the advice !

    maya my friend !

    bit of a complex pig (maya), hence why in my animation it is all so simple . Quite a few options with the rendering though.

    I tried to do it first in Swift but think that even though it is simple it is a little complex for swift .

    At the first closeup of the radio where you start the tuner display animation show one of the guys pressing a button to start the scan.(Maybe you did but I couldn't see it)

    That way you are aware of the radio scanning for the rest of the anim.

    Just as the music plays go to a closeup of the radio. Almost fill the screen with it I'd say.
    You could also animate an equalizer but that might make it a bit too obvious and would take extra work.

    Just my opinion though.

    Thank you for your feedback .. there was a finger but if you missed probably others did too !
