This is the first test of the underwater splashdown at the end of the animation. I want this to be the strongest part of the film. Which means I’ll need about three times as many bubbles, more movement variety in the follow through, and the splash needs to cover a wider area of the screen.
Plus, water doesn’t close in on itself as quickly as shown here. I need the very beginning of the splash to “jellyfish” and slowly to rush into fill the space.
I do have the timing of things down pretty well, though.
