Animator: Jim

Description: I tried to come up with something that would relate to the audio track. I thought it fit reasonably well with what was being said.

This is my first attempt at character animation.

Experience: 3 months mostly with FX animation

Time taken: 3 weeks, nights and weekends

Danny Kneip:

Some compositional issues here, but a fun idea and decent sync (though extremely minimalistic (using only a small handful of mouth shapes)). "Not" does not read as clearly as I would prefer, and once he stops shaking his head, he basically turns into a statue with moving arms and mouth, instead of his entire body reacting to picking up something that looks like it weighs at least 10 pounds. Amusing and cute overall, but really needs more polishing.

Ben Crouse:

The limited animation style has a certain charm to it. Not sure I understand what's going on though. The mom thinks her kid was scared to death?

Ryan D Lowe:

Hi there.
When I was first starting out, no one ever
took the time to say anything on my shots.

I can't give you constructive feedback here,
as your work seems to lack an overall
understanding of the principles of animation.

However, I emplore you to seek out these
books, and began your studies.

"Acting for Animators"- Revised Edition

There are many more, but these will get you
started. Best of luck on your journey!
