nice

Sergey B.:

top 10 for sure! really love the animation

Erich:

Fantastic! Great job! There is a subtle knod from the zombie at ~frame 95 I didn't catch the first time. Maybe push that a little more?

John:

Great animation! Only thing I would have done differently is to make the camera go a little closer at some point to see the ghost thing better, but thats just me and you are not me. Also, the small zombie nod make me smile :)

Frank Geadah:

Great!!

Lucas Leme:

WOW

Iain Wilson:

this has to win

Isadora Morales Chaves:

hahahah Nice, smooth animation. Good job

Jim P:

ok, you have the best render, the best lighting, the obviously professional ability so you'll probably win... but when he zips from ear to coffin I am lost as to where in space the coffin is at (side or front) (the dead guy should turn his head to follow him from side to front or have the coffin prop in front of the uniform or something). In analyzing frame by frame, you transition from side to coffin in 3 frames and that is just too fast. There, now I feel better. :-)

Robert Firestone:

Wow! I love it.

Amin Bahari:

well done and such an interesting concept, definitely on my top 10 for this month.
one minor thing that i would have done differently is switching to a closer camera shot, after I had set the scene. Having your main character remain this far from your audience throughout the clip was not in my opinion, the best choice.
Good luck!

Laura Frost:

Awesome idea! Awesome animation, love it!

Jason Wellings:

Love it. On second viewing through all of the entries this might actually be my top pick. Not much to critique on this one that I can see. I love the subtle movements you included, like the weight shift as he walks down his shoulder and the tiny head nod. The ghost is great all around.

Congrats on your awesome work :)

Michael McKnight:

I really like the choice in characters here. The animations are very smooth and the effects are well done.

Skyler Swender:

This has some great context and compositional choices that are working nicely for character acting. I would say you could even crop the frame in maybe a tad more so your gestures can be toned down but very nice.

John Leland:

niiice

Kevin:

Fantastic! Great use of the Willy and Zombie rigs and totally unexpected. This looks like a winner to me.

Dominic Rayner:

Why do most entrants here animate a person imitating a dead person with their tongue out? A bit of a cliché. Anyway.. I rate you will do quite well in this month competition, my top few. A nice Aladdin inspired piece. The monkey lets it down though and - is he dead or alive? It's not completely clear, so the gag is not clear. And the best animation with the ghost is tiny, so you could do with zooming closer eg, for the second half with the coffin etc.

Davit Martirosyan:

Great idea and very good concept and nice animation! Cool !!+++

Jarl:

Great idea and overall decent execution! The smoke effects when he lands in the coffin are a nice touch. There are a few sudden jerkier movements here and there (such as when the zombi first sits up) which unfortunately break away from the quality of the rest of it.

Divyam Chand:

Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant!!! Concept man.....and the animation aptly supports it....Nice job

Lukasz Wenc:

most original idea this month for me, great!

Imon Branch:

very interesting.

Jessica "Jess" Jerome:

nice idea
