Tyson Haeh:

A better range of emotion in the main character would help this


The phone is very distracting but i like the animation very much.

Pauline Champetier:

Nice body acting, but if the facial expressions and lipsync were pushed a bit more it would add a lot to your scene !

Eric Raffle:

you needed a bit of reflection on the laptop it took me a while to realize it was on a laptop and the girls hand angle felt akward to me. your speech needed more work as you were missing key speech poses.

Dalton Krajewski:

This is a very clever idea and it was presented very well! The lip-syncing could be timed better, as the mouth movements seem very soft and they miss the beat in more than a few places, but paired with some more variation in his poses, this would be even more beautiful!

Nassim Briedj:

nice one

Amartya Mukherji:

Animation is no doubt nice. In fact its very good.
But I am not happy with the camera layout.I strongly feel an OTS would work better than a POV in such cases. LOGIC :- The female character is looking at the mobile screen and not the laptop screen right? But you are making the audience look at the laptop screen through the character's POV. How is that possible?

Anyways, even if I stick to your layout,- This Cam is too static. There should be a live movement all throughout. It would be even better if you can pan the cam towards the laptop after Frame 180, when the female character tries to communicate..

Alexander Gray:

that's some very nice natural animation.
