juan francisco leon:

one of the first places!!!

Reyane Ashtar:

It's really good. It's just the lip syncing in a bit off.

Skylar Zerr:

Really good job. Well done

Sergio Candela Ramirez:

awesome job! :D

Fang Qian Lim:

i like this so much !!! awesome

Sarathbabu A S:

Good appeal, nice work dude,,,.

Bradley Adams:

Very good and a suprise twist at the end. My only complaint would be the female looking static in the closeup shot of the standing man.

Camilo Guaman:

I like the animation is very fluid, what I found weird is to use a female character to deliver a male performance.
Good job!

Jean Lamy:

Nicely done. The animation is fluent and the story is well conveyed in a short clip. Bravo. Just a little bit more time on the lady's lip sync and this would be golden!

Chris Clarke:

Nice animation. The lip sync just needs a little improvement though. I like it!



Niina Tamura:

The guy standing has great body language!

Erika Krisanti:

Love it!!

Szilard Hadobas:

Great shot! Might need more work on the lipsync.

Lim Zhi Chuan:

Deep emotion element you got there my friend! :)


Good job!
In this case, the audio match the female character!


The mechanics of the guys movement and your acting choices are great! The only thing that stood out to me as a critique is the lip sync on the girl feels a little disconnected. When she says, "thing is..." is an example, the jaw feels a little floaty, hard to connect it to the voice. Also, perhaps she would benefit from a bit more light on her face. Overall really nice piece, one of my favs.


Very Nice!!

Pallav Sharma:


Iqtidar Ali Siddiqui:

Michaela Wadzinski:

The racked focus is really fantastic. It tells a whole story and I really enjoyed that!

Jordan Lewers:

Oh baby, the whole package of animation! It even comes with an interesting story!

Darren Teh:

Nice subtle animation...feels abit weird tho, with the male voice. Love the ending.

Jamie Calvert:

Super Awesome! My favorite of this months competition.

Loved the overall performances and the reveal at the end.

Florencia Irena:

nice animation, the lipsync at the beginning kinda off tho. but i get it the part when she's so sad and makes her lips kinda shake. really love this :)
