Robert Tighe:

Very snappy, maybe too much? Nice idea for boss vs employee.

Jay Smith:

Great use of the camera! Oh and the animation totally rocks! Great job!!11

Vardan Galstyan:

Too fast! but its nice

Christoffer Andersen:

I think you have a lovely idea, but his energylevel is much higher than his tone of voice, so the two don't go together very well

Valentious Williams:


Steve Legate:

This was funny, great idea!

April Slocombe:

A little too much camera movement but the animation is generally consistent and I like Bill's disappointed look at the end.

kishan Rathod:

Needs a lot of improvement

Kristin Turnipseed:

Nice movement, I really like his expression at the end!

Derek Stewart:

Not bad! Dig the idea with Santa's workshop. There's some lip-sync issues, as well as issues with staging. But I like the overall mood with this one. I'd keep at it! :)


:( no sound but the animation looks solid.

Duckula Bravepuppy:

Nice story

Theron Chaplin:

Timing is really nice, snappy!
