Per Cardell:

Hahaha! Great idea! He doesn't need to the contents of the book that strongly since he is a grown up and probably the boys father. The last cut of the confused boy is not needed. I love it.

Vanessa Gonzalez:

Haha I like the idea of this one. My only critique here really is that I think he starts talking too quickly after he breathes out; maybe if you give him a liiiitle bit of a longer pause it would flow better in my opinion. But good job :D

Robert Firestone:

Love the dad's reaction!

Beau Hall:

More mouth movement would've made this almost perfect.

Chrissy Schneider:

Theme is great

Aaron Clement:

Nice polish. Consonants could do with work. Love the acting.

Jasmine Moody:

Very good <3

Ryan D Lowe:

Hate that body spacing on F250- but great work overall. Great lip sync here! Overall just needs a good pass on spacing/texture.

Amartya Mukherji:

very cute animation.. weight of the book is lacking
your break down poses needs to be refined to create more arc


Very fluid animation!

Danny Kneip:

Really good character animation up until the dialogue starts. The lip sync needs additional polishing.. many of the words are unreadable. The decision to not throw the book away was a good one. The child looking into the camera at the end spoils the animation for me. A decent animation nonetheless.

Divyam Chand:

It would be really interesting if the boy has a change of expression in the end i.e. acquires this expression afterwards. And in the end there's no need to make him look at the camera. That looks a lot wiered. Hook Up problem in the second shot, the boy's hands should be visible.
