Hoo boy. There's a lot of good in there but also balanced out with just as much not so good.

+ Look/rendering/animation is "fine", it's not A+ but it does the job; could've used shadows, just to represent the character's distance from the ground (see screenshot)
+ Soundtrack is great.
- Storytelling / direction is uncomfortably rushed through; you're basically telling a classic "unusual event happens to usual protagonist" Pixar story, but you're about ~15 seconds in when that happens, and then the rest is rushed through in about 2 minutes. Let the scenes breathe, set them up a bit; this is one of those extremely rare prods that should've been twice (if not 3 times) as long. Just listen to the poor soundtrack, it's trying to juggle a bunch of themes trying to keep up with the pace.
- You don't have to cut on every beat or every 2 seconds. I know this is hard when you've seen a demo a thousand times while making it, but try to imagine how long it takes for an average viewer seeing it for the first time to register what's going on in a given shot.
- Also go easy on the camera movement too, especially when you're trying to convey something ominous; the globe scene is a particularly good example where the camera is spinning around way too fast and makes it harder to make out what the viewer is supposed to be paying attention to.

I appreciate you trying to do something different every time, I really do, but now is the time to double down on learning the finer parts of direction.
