Katie Wyman:

Good acting, good staging. The premise makes sense with the way you've laid it out, and the expressions and gestures on the skeleton come across as natural. Personally I would have made the gestures just a little more subtle, but that's me. I do think the camera move down to the goblin(?) is a little jaring on first watch. For such a fast cut, we need time to adjust. I'd recommend a non moving camera at all there, or using a camera move that's again more subtle. To emphasise size difference, you could also consider making the shot on the skeleton at a low angle so that we're slightly looking up to him. Would be good contrast for the shot change. Arcs are good on the movement, I only wish there were a little more squash and stretch going on (just a little). Yeah, instead of such extreme movements I think subtle would work better with more emphasis on the main animation principles. Overall, great work though! This stands out nicely in the competition, and you should be proud.
