Heeeeeeeeeeeeey, @Lady-Mehek! I have just finished reading Spotlight: Upstaged.

4 points for your chapter length - The chapter was timed for seven minutes long, and that’s okay. Maybe you can make it ten or fifteen minutes long?
3 points for art - The cover art definitely gave me an idea of the story, but, you only used the backgrounds from the catalog. Maybe you can use some other backgrounds next time, and you definitely need splashes.
5 points for animating - Animations were definitely suitable to your characters, so there’s no problem with that.
5 points for dialogue - Nothing was wrong with your dialogue, it was on point!
0 points for choices - I didn’t see any choices in the story, maybe you should add some to the first episode when you choose to revamp it.
0 points for music and sounds - I didn’t hear any music or sounds, maybe add some in?
5 points for your plot - It was original, so I loved it.

Some other sidenotes: I’ll be happy to make you some splashes if needed and I have removed the spot directing and zoom criteria as your story was a spotlight story.

Overall, your score for Episode One is 22 points!

I do have a story-affecting choice around the middle-end of chapter 2 and a few others in 2-3. I’ll consider putting in splashes/music if I choose to revamp it as a regular story in the future, something I’m currently considering. Thank you for the honesty and feedback!

Hey, @queenkhadijah999! I have just finished reading the first episode of Small Town Secrets.

2 points for chapter length - Your chapter was timed three minutes, that’s pretty short! I suggest writing to a length that can equal ten or fifteen minutes.
5 points for art - You used some backgrounds not from the Episode Catalog, and this made me very visually appealed.
4 points for animating - Your animations were definitely suitable to your characters itself and the dialogue, but, they were idle once or twice here and there. Maybe you can fix that!
5 points for dialogue - No punctuation errors were found and all of the dialogue made sense.
5 points for choices - I saw that there were many choices and one choice that affected the story. This is really great, especially for the first episode.
0 points for music and sounds - My volume was on and I didn’t hear anything. Using sounds can really enhance your readers’ experience and it will make them enjoy the story more.
5 points for zooms and spot directing - You used spot directing and zooms a lot, that’s good.
3 points for your plot - It’s definitely original, but, I don’t see it much.

Some Sidenotes:
-You should have a splash that contains,“This story uses sound.” If you need this splash, feel free to pm me.

Overall, your score for Episode One is 29 points.

Hey, guys! As of right now, story reviews are closed. The reason it is closed right now is because I have fourteen stories to review, and most of those need me to read three episodes, I have to save my passes up to review your stories. I hope you guys understand! If you have gotten your story entered into the form already, it will still be reviewed.
