And what about forget all those placeholders, and just slowly rotate and get to the top with the camera and just say “Merry christmas” ?

I have to agree with everyone else… placeholders are far too small. They kind of look like they’ve been added as an afterthought. Maybe you could come in closer on some, closer still on others, maybe at an angle with a bit of depth of field and some reflections on the image etc etc.

How about some golden Santa dust coming off of the images to give it a ‘magical Christmas’ feel?! Maybe some kind of ‘golden hour’ flare coming through the window to make it a bit more cinematic and a wintery snow version as well. Just throwing some idea out there.

Looks really good though, I like it!

If I’m reviewer I’d soft reject this.
I suppose that reviewers don’t have a time to write long explanations for every rejected project, so this part of the forum is right place to discuss.
3D work is great, well done. But I don’t see anything magical before 0:25, and when fireworks start, camera is static and I don’t like upper part of the screen. I’d also use more cameras with cross dissolve (but I’d try with cuts too), with no camera motion around the christmas tree, and with no fast movements like 0:09.
Again, 3d part of the work is great, so if you give up on this christmas project, use that 3d interior for something new, maybe gallery…

3D work is excellent. But in general, the work is pale, it is not a holiday. It is full of errors: small pictures, a lot of background, faded ugly color. The biggest mistake this lack of magic.
