When mery turns around in the beginning, she freezes for something like 10 frames. I think you should make the whole turn one fluid movement. Also, your choice of character for the "dancing master" could have been better. He just kind of slides and , because of his teeth, I can't really see his mouth movements.


Cute idea! One of the fun things about that squirrel rig is, since there's so little to work with, it lets you really play with fluidity, weight and lines of motion in order to get real acting out of it. I'd encourage you to play with that aspect of it and really liven it up.

James Trimm:

She moves well.

Timothy Muller:

Hello there. My recommendation for you would be to practice your posing skills. Focus on contrapposto and line of action. Also check out Ed Hook's "Acting for Animators" if you haven't already.
Keep up the good work. Cheers!

Lucy Acland:

This needs a lot of polishing, and a lot more movement from the squirrel. Also, it would be better to see the two characters in the same shot.
