Ben Crouse:

So good! Just goes to show that you don't need an elaborate set or crazy vfx to do well. Just pure believable character animation. Well done!

Carlo Nicoletta:

Looks good. I think you could start the blue guy already holding on to the orange guy. Maybe exaggerate one of his body shakes as well, they are a little hard to read as is. Having one small shake then a larger one (about 2.5 times the size) would add some variety. Good job.

Michael Minasyan:

good emotions

Amartya Mukherji:

timing is really very nice.. focus shifts were very nicely composed.

Moy Parra:

Fingers crossed :D

Aaron Junyou:

NICE!!!. . .but when the orange character says "Life" maybe you can emphasize on the word with the lips. When we say "Ff" you can have his lips go in to show exaggeration.

Tai Beaumont:

Awesome! Was the depth of field done in the render or post production?

Ryan D Lowe:

Great stuff. LOVE the interaction. Neat characters!
The slow realization as SR character is being shaken out of his happy place. Love it. Great work. Could you not get a "EFF" shape in this model for the final line?

Richard Clark:

Simple yet effective! Nice job!

Danny Kneip:

I just wish that bottom lip curled under the teeth for the "f" of life because it doesn't read properly. The interaction is nice. The characters are well animated and the secondary action is pretty good. The sync, overall, is believable! The blur is a nice touch, but perhaps a little too heavy handed??
