My main goal here was to try to bring credibility with a cartoon/non realistic animation.

Experience: 1 year

Time taken: about a week and a half

Jimmy Horner:

The camera is doing too much and distracting from the scene. I would stick to one or two angles for the way you created the scene. Good animation though

Simon HENRY:

The head is very expressive, I like the eyes, great job !
But the hands seems messy, and are late sometimes, like on the "don't eat the car !"
And last thing, the mouth is still moving in the end, but there's no words.

K Thomas Fosse:

I like the dynamic, bodylanguage and the expressions of the character.

Eva Elmo Leung:

Audio and video are off by a second or two noticably.

Owen Fern:

The camera cuts don't work very well, look into the 30 degree rule

Robert Mariazeta:

Motion Blur won't be able to hide the fact that you need more overlap on your hands m'friend. fr 78 to be more specific.

Oliver Pedersen:

The torso is a little stiff at times

Jon Sheldon:

The lip sync and phonemes are off.

Danny Kneip:

The lip sync might be really well done, but it's hard to read because of frames like F121 - he has a grey beard, grey teeth and the inside of his mouth by his tongue is greyish. F127 is an even better example. The movements and gestures are very fluid.

Alexandre Spontak:

Good ! :)
