Annie Iglesias:

I really love the frustration in the protagonist's body language as he says "no meat". It goes great with the line

Lucas Donaldson:

I like the actions of the girl, as a secondary background action. Something about the way its put together makes me focus on the girl though rather than the two people talking. Im unsure if thats just me though.

Adrian Winchell:

I really like this one - and the lady in the center has the best acting of them all, and she's not even in the audio!

Robert Firestone:

Cool idea

Joep de Laat:

I can see you've put a lot of work in it and your acting and movements are good, but the girl takes up most of the attention in each shot and is always on screen and so the focus; the conversation, fades away behind that...

Yanick Belanger:

great idea ! It should be more fluid in my opinion, with some nicer arc. It is just a matter of taking more time to polish the animation from there. Keep up the good work !

Rachel Inman:

I feel like some of the motion was a little choppy or jerky, but overall a great balance between the three characters. I also feel like the camera could have been positioned a little bit better so that the composition made a smoother picture back and forth.

Tafrey Mongkuo:

Awesome job and the animation! Love the concept as well.
