Samar Preet Bawa:

good work

Danny Kneip:

Excellent work, what more can I say? Love it.

Anneke de Graaf:

I loved your animation, really nice endingpose and the way the guy approches the woman looks great! Good job! One thing I would do personally is at the 'Not', a bounce back on his hand. To make it a bit stronger.

Daniel Vasconcellos:



Great! Well done!

Some stronger mouth positions might improve lip sync - M and V seem to be a little soft? And transition wise, I think her right hand should stay on the wall behind her for at least a fraction of a second in the last shot ( because that is where she placed it few moments ago )?

But I am being nitpicky :D You really did a great job!
Incredible drawing! Good luck!

Moy Parra:

poses and facial expressions are nice. Maybe a little more energy would make it even stronger

Robert Firestone:

Wow! Great acting, well drawn, well animated.

Mario Ramirez:

FANTASTIC expressions and hand gestures, just use a bit more emphasis on the lips and your golden!

Carlo Nicoletta:

Looks really good. Here is a couple of suggestions. It would be nice to see a subtle headshake side to side on the women as she starts to lean back before giving her line. Also, cutting to man a bit quicker before he says "No" would help. Also minor thing, his chin is getting a little close to tangeting at the end. Good job.

Amartya Mukherji:

wow.. this one packs a punch.. like to see it in the top ten.

Mahesh Waran:

woooaahh! great

Qinqing Wang:

Best piece! The movement is so accurate and simple, no wasted movements. In the second shot, if the camera zoom in a little bit, that may be better, any way, it's really really good acting.

Natalie Wilkinson:

Excellent work

Ryan D Lowe:

Amazing drawings. Amazing. I feel the transitions are too even though. A bit floaty in small places. Could be tightened a bit. My favorite so far however, great work!

Will Sherburne:

Very nice! Love the acting and poses on the last shot particularly.

Paul Wei:

Awesome job! Very clear acting choices.

Babul Prasad:

nice work

Ruth Agada:

Nice acting!

Valentious Williams:

great shot .

Irina Volishina:

Good graphic style

Sahutsawat Seng Khantrum:



one of the best ive seen so far great job.


Brilliant! Only thought was in the staging in 2nd camera view would have been better if the top of his head wasn't cut off. The crazed personality of the scientist really shows through. The fear in the woman. The acting is spot on.

Richard Clark:

Nice job on the creepiness of the male character!!! Simple idea yet effective!

Arianto Jaya:

Good job. Love the acting. :)
