Keaton Towns:

Really nice work on that shaky-cam end shot! My biggest critique would be to give some more life to the old man in his eyebrows and mouth shapes. The lips never make an O shape, but that may have been a limitation of the rig. Good job overall!

Spencer Barber:

Nice! The arm gestures of the first guy felt a bit too big/flowy. But the rest felt pretty natural to me. Good job!


Good animation. The first bit was good, but the second part was very interesting and shown in a unique view. Love the camera shake at the very end.
