What They See

Finally! The first one I've seen that actually seems to have of an idea of what the "circle" would be in their animation! And I really like where you went with it, very existential. It's just too bad everything preceding the zoom out is just not very interesting and the voice is noticeably out of sync. I would explore using different camera angles or having the characters walk around before the big reveal. I'd also suggest increasing the stakes for the characters because at the moment, neither of them seem all that invested in what the man is saying. This is life-changing stuff their talking about so don't take it lightly.
body movement quite good, face for me needs more work to make impact/meaning
Great storytelling with this piece. Your supporting character was fantastic, but I think she outshined your main character at times. You may want to push his mouth shapes more and stage the two so that his back isn't towards her throughout.
ok so i guess a quite few had the same idea...nicely done
i get whats the idea in this scene, maybe u can fasten the girl's movement on frame 30 ->70 , Its like floating right now.
