Very good. Great expressions. The best.

Dieguito Pritchett:

nice acting

Ori Gellman:


Simon HENRY:

Great job ! nice choices, the animation is fluid. But I think it couldbe more energetic. Especially on the "Not the car !", it"s a bit too smooth for me to accentuate the speech correctly.

Tobias Egeli:

Sweet animation, but where is the story. Who is he? Why is he complaining? is it his car? what did he do befor the scene started? Good acting is more than good animation. Storytelling is a big part of this contest aswell as the animation.
I would guess you have the skill to reach the top 10 list if you implements a god story.

Danny Kneip:

A good, believable performance. I could feel his anguish. The lip sync is nice and the camera move is well controlled. Good job!

Amartya Mukherji:

Decent acting


Good choice of expressions from the start. Especially the restrained exasperation with hands behind the head. Nice. Really want to see (supposed dog) he's speaking to. Maybe a flash of the tail obscuring the camera for a few rounds would be enough hint or back of the dogs head for a few moments.


Amazing acting and expressions! Just a lil bit of exaggeration in actions was missing!

Yuki Radcliffe:

Nice! I love how his movements read well and they're not over the top. Very believable!

Harry G:

I liked the entry where he looks into the car. After she says "eating the Car..." frame 115, the lip sync and timing needs to be worked on.

Alexandre Spontak:

Great man !! :)
