Danny Kneip:

The lip sync is good, but the staging and composition are strange. The distance is good to start, but I wish the gap closed by the end so there might be greater interaction. As he never directly looks at her, and there is no eye contact, it is hard for me to care about what her problem might be.

Mattie Walsh:

The characters are too static. The shot is too, and it doesn't read read as interesting. It's a really emotion driven dialogue you would want to sell it with more close up shots.

Edward Chris Evjen:

Don't hide the actor.

Jesse J. Jones:

The tear wipe is pretty exaggerated. Try acting yourself how you would realistically wipe a tear away. Their bodies are almost completely still the whole time the only thing moving being their heads and hands which looks unnatural. His last pose is also way too drifty, work on your timing.
