Owl: A couple more rendered sequences

Ah, the fruits of labour! While you're animating it really is hard to get a gauge for what the final render is truly going to look like, so I'm always rendering out the final sequences with a bit of nervousness and excitement.

Now that I'm seeing more of the animation reach finality, I'm reminded a lot of old museum dioramas with painted backdrops. Both of these renders only represent their initial shot in the animation. As the background image is static, my philosophy when animating is to make sure every object, no matter how small, has a movement. It produces a strangely rhythmic and slightly hypnotic effect at times.
