I like it but with your comment. I was thinking that if you put a 
coloured filter (sepia?) in front of the camera for that bit. It might 
enhance the feeling of surreality.

I think you have got it right with the timing. Remember, always leave 
them wanting more. :)



I can see this becoming a PovRay classic. :)
At the end you the video you mentioned putting water in the fish tank. 
This made me think of Tim Kikas's LSSM macros. With them you can 
generate a water surface that interacts with the environment. Air 
bubbles would create waves that reflect from the sides of the tank.

Last comment about the downloaded video. From 10 to 16 minutes the 
screen is blank the music continues.
