Bailey Easson:

I loved this. If giraffes could talk I would want them to talk like this. It's hilarious. The animation was nice and smooth. Good job!

Jesse J. Jones:

Screen right giraffe seems to not react after fr. 210. Good work though! Looks like a hard rig to get emotion out of. Those beady eyes...

Aaron Rivera:

There's something you don't see every day. Interesting choice of models. It kinda limits the expressions but the animation itself is pretty good.

Danny Kneip:

This really surprised me - two giraffes walking along having an adult conversation! :D A great lip sync and really life-like movements and gestures. The female giraffe definitely seems frozen and doesn't have much response to his words, other than to blink. I really wish she'd showed some additional movement (lowered her head, neck) as she does at 21, because some response is necessary. Potentially, more could have been done with the male giraffe turning toward her, butting heads and showing dominance. Overall, I like this quite a bit. Great job.

Sergio Barragan L:

Great idea, bad animation!
