First rate!

Branden Blowey:

Animation's nice, but jeez I gotta give ya props for having a fully realized setup and background for it, really adds an extra layer to it!

Megan Menetrey:

The girl looks like she's walking faster than she actually is. Fix that motion path.


This is definitely the best one I've seen so far! Love the environment and that you have other characters in the background. Best lipsynch so far as well.

William Barry Eggington:

Great work.

Anais Larocque:

Awesome job !! I love how there is so many details. :)

Eric De Carolis:

models and renders are good!
Animation is a little stale. I think its just needs a few more clean up passes

Anuj Sharma:
