Good work on the entry! I really like Tom's expression change from angry at the start to when he says "ahhh nominal!" with the little blink in the middle. The lip syncing could use a little more work, I'd suggest filming yourself saying the dialogue so you can see the mouth shapes produced and translate that into the animation. When playblasting or rendering it's a good idea to hide everything that you don't need in the scene, just go to show -> none and then show -> polygons. If there are still objects that you want to hide you can click on them and press H to hide them. The animation feels a little slow/swimmy when Tom settles back into the chair and the other characters could use a bit more smoothing. I really like the thumb point backwards and the direction you've taken it in. Good job!

Taylor Cole:

Needs some more secondary actions; shoulders are too stiff. The lip sync of the guy reading is off. Liked how the character moved with the seat when it got kicked.
