Lovely scene and animation. As for things to perhaps improve, the Camera move on your female character needs to be softened. When you are reveling in the godrays through the stained glass, it might work better if the amazing boat is appropriately in the scene to see those great lighting effects Lastly, even in an intro, it feels like the intro itself is trying to communicate a point in the brief animation, and I think perhaps a stronger finish would help tie everything together.
Yes, you're right about the softening of the camera move, it is one of the things I would change if I were to redo this animation (which I won't). The timing of the camera move was framed by the first sunlight falling on her face and the full view of the first window with her silhouette in front of it. Regarding your second comment: also true, but then the animation would have lasted way to long, either that or I should have skipped some windows. Anyway, I needed to create that distance from the airship in the final shot, as that was the shot the entire movie started from (see the "making of" story on my website: https://www.imagesandmusic.nl/index.html#work ). The entire introduction in the baroque room was written and animated after the animation of the airship and the stained glass windows in the cathedral, to provide 'a head and a tail' so to speak to that mini story.
