good start! :)
it need a bit more polishing and some more blinks + eyebrow animation. :) the eyes are very important!

Per Cardell:

Great irony in this piece. Really like the humor in it!

Chrissy Schneider:

Great, has a mystery about it. Great lip sync.

Amartya Mukherji:

ha ha .. funny face at the end not going with the audio.

nice animation. keep it up :)

Vanessa Gonzalez:

Pretty decent but it seems like his movements are all linear. They don't slow in or slow out and they are too still during the pauses.

Ryan D Lowe:

Do a full pass on arcs with this. Watch for areas to include arcs and circular motion.

Richard Clark:

Work on your appears floaty. And make sure the motion doesn't hit a wall. Frame 103 is an example. If the book is hitting his legs then cushion it a bit and add a bit of follow-through rotation on it. Another example is the right hand hitting a wall at 165. Also, that first pose of him holding the book looks off. It's either his hands or the book itself. I would add a little bend inward to the book and reposition the fingers so that the thumb is really wrapping itself around it for a better grasp.

Danny Kneip:

A pity that the eyeballs move so quickly (only 1 frame to their new resting place), because the lip sync is pretty great! The expressions are really good. The fingers, coming off the book toward the glasses are pretty stiff and could use additional polishing, and the book itself would have benefited from a bit of a bend, but there's really great potential here. Love the mood.
