just some things that came to my mind:
the stop & go movement of the characters fits the style very well, except the walking women - i doesn't feel right (like if you watch a movie with a very bad internet connection - which wasn't the case)...
i totally like the waves carrying the casket.
when the fishermen pull out the island the cut is also a bit too soon i think, maybe it would be better if the island stops rising before the cut (or rise and drop back a bit before it finds its balance) to give the viewer a bit more time before moving on to the map, which is very nice - i like how all the bits are chopped off.
great use of textures.
