Very cool and I feel with a bit more time spent on it this animation could be very good. If you don’t mind me giving you some feedback. Weight shifts and body feel good and works for the most part but the mouth shapes could use a little cleanup. It’s the hands and arms that stick out the most to me. There are a couple times when they crash through the legs also the hand poses feel to similar throughout the animation and near the end they are what my instructor used to say “pancake hands”. If you haven’t heard the term it just means there flat and haven’t been changed from the original position. Especially Screen right hand in this case. I think adding some shoulder animation will help further this piece. An example in your shot would be frame 31 when he’s lifting his arm up having the shoulder push up a bit as well would help it feel more connected and real. A good exercise I found was standing in front of a mirror and lifting my arms up. When you do this you can see how lifting your arms up can affect the rest of your body. When your animating you have to keep in mind that everything is connected and moving a part of your body like an arm will effect other parts of the body like the chest or the neck and of course the shoulder.. again great work and I hope to see it again with a little more polish in the future :)

I really like the clap at the end, but this lacks a lot of polishing.

Andi Pearson:

movement could use work, but I will not lie I laughed so hard when the second character moved in frame for the hand shake, the expression on the main character is priceless. Great work!
