I hope they gave you a damn good grade for this! I'm no animator, and know nothing, but to me it seems really superbly animated. The secondary motion (and the way it's more delayed in the water), the squash and stretch, the way her hug shows the tension and then relaxation with just cartoony noodly arms, the way the nymph rises from the water but her ears perk more slowly, so many many tiny little animation details and movements like this in every single shot, making them seem real, alive, and filled with changing emotions. So much emotion and body-language even in just the fish, with no limbs! And as everyone has said, the topic and the story are adorable and well-told. I don't know how college works in the US, but in the UK, 4 years is usually a Master's degree. I think it's not overstating to call this a masterwork :)
Don't be disappointed. This is not just English with a cool new age font: this is Old Norse, written in Younger Futhark runes.
Not only that, but when they said the words, they strove to keep the pronunciation of the words correct to Old Norse instead of modern Icelandic.

Massive, massive props to Disney for getting this right when they could have just fudged it, and also to Jackson Crawford ( secure.gravatar.com/jacksoncra… ), their Old Norse scholar who did the work.

Here's his post about it, which contains a link to the translation (warning, spoilers)

[Edit to add: they also got other small details right that geeks of other types will like: the choral singing style, for example.]

Avoid kickstarter where possible.
There are other crowdfunding platforms which let you get money even if you fail to hit your target, and which allow payments from, eg, paypal rather than requiring amazon payments only; and which allow projects to be made by people outside the US.
Google "crowdfunding" or "alternatives to kickstarter".
Cute as a button - and you kick ass for letting people use it.
+watched! :)
