    really nice illustration and very nice explanation of the event itself- it gives a good understanding for the research. you explain why the research is important – very nice

  2. Rahul says:

    You covered the content of the experiment and the connections to the modules well. The illustrations were also very detailed and original. I just wish there was a little more color.

  3. Harsh says:

    I really liked the drawings as they connected very well to the content. One thing you could have added was some dynamic stiles rather just the static flow. Overall, good job!

  4. Ariel says:

    I like how you go back, discussing the research/event in detail, starting with evolution and moving forward. This helps the viewer understand the study. Also, very nice conclusion.

  5. Jazmin says:

    Very good job at incorporating the “big picture.” The figures went really well with the content. Great job.

    The conclusion was great at bringing everything together. The video’s graphics were very cute
