Animation progress: the Beginning of Act 2

This week I've started animating Act 2.
The story reaches the point where bird is exploring both the world and himself. As he is discovering more and more, he also discovers the Island.

The pacing in second  act is  much slower. Also Bird's position is changing: he moves from his infancy stage to a more mature one.  To convey the point camera angles are used (  from slightly up above him to facing straight), his overall pose changes ( legs are longer now, pelvis more straight, wings looser and open and so on).

Here is the video of aniamtion sequences:

the animation when played in the set up sequence showed some issues. I went back to animationcurves and cleaned them up, also checked camera moves (especially vertigo shot).
