This is super nice in terms of image quality per frame! I was only able to spot some tiny flickering bits, for example on the knitted pillow, that was probably caused by displacement in "screen" rather than "world" mode.
Were the caustics rendered with Corona's caustics solver or was some kind of trick involved? They look very clear and I couldn't see any flickering.

Thanks Marcin, I'm glad you liked it! I might have to do some testing with the displacement as you suggested to remove the flickering on the pillow. The Caustics are all with the Corona Solver, I found the result was much nicer than the normal faking it tricks, so I just had to endure the long render times.

Wow, this is very cool.
Great framing, great light and great edits. Love all the details - flying embers… holy shhhh.
The day to night time-lapse looks amazing too (except one “darkish blinky” frame in the middle)

I think your animation has perfect pacing. A lot of archviz animations tend to hold shots a bit too long…
Ok, maybe cut the Porsche magic light show a bit and show us a Gecko hunting instead?
I assume the car is there to give us a little break from architecture, but you know what they say about rich people and their cars… yep, no room for malibus.
 
Have you been to Tarifa? It feels like the windiest place on earth. Maybe a nod in this direction would have been cool…

Sorry for rambling… I think you guys are great and should do this 3D thing professionally!!!

Thanks for the kind words Jojo! I really tried to keep the animation fast pace and with some more dynamic camera movements than the usual slow pans. I'm a car guy so any excuse to focus on a CGI car I'm happy! Never been to Tarifa but would love to go now after finishing this project.
