Love the movement in the beginning from both the characters and the camera - great to see it turn from a "normal" shot to a dutch angle! The lip sync is good, and the expressions are nice. The hand animation is the weakest part of this animation, in my opinion. Her hand at F37 is very awkward and is basically frozen in time from F53 to about F72. Him pulling her closer is strong (her expression is great), but she remains lifeless after that and it's a pity. Still, I like what you did overall.

Amartya Mukherji:

nice try could have been better

Aaron Junyou:

It's nice, but after he says "Life" his mouth closes immediately. I felt that was weird. But great job

Babul Prasad:

body actions are fine, need to work on lipsync

Ryan D Lowe:

You need some simple cushion on those fingers when they interact with her face. I think it will sell the firm/softness contrast.
