It's Alive!!- 08/01/00

After six weeks from start to finish, I'm ready to put my first animation out for viewing and review. Any feedback (positive or negative) is sincerely appreciated. After six weeks I still know there are things wrong with it, but I have to let it go and do other things.

If you do have feedback, please let me know here.
