    I really like how the transaction shows the process of the animation. Showing the process as animation makes it feel like it had a purpose. They also used the right amount of negative and positive space. On movie screens it seems like it has a storyboard and leads you to the next part.

    What made the video feel like a proper animation was the switching of different posters/movie posters to specifically convey a message to the audience. You were able to see that in each transition it formed the sentence “Every single movie got one. From simple to the more substantial”
