philipp seis:

Touching. And the light is very moody. Also good story idea. Animation of the dad looks a bit mechanic on him.

Bailey Easson:

Really well done! I like the Juno poster in the background, but more importantly the animation is pretty smooth and the story told in the clip is really nice. The subtle looks/expressions given to the characters are a nice touch. Good job!

Philippe Duvin:

Love the staging, composition and idea with the three person set up ! Sweet !

Greg Stovell:

Great story! Could use a little work on the lip synch. Love the character animation and the pose of the mom by the door.

David Macatantan:

Strong mouth poses.

Story is confusing. He is consulting his son? Close friends son? Either way, the woman coming in kills the sincerity toward the child.

Nik Ottinger:

i think the lip sync might be a bit off, but I love the staging and the subtleties in the eyes!

Sean McDonald:

I love it! Could have a winner here!

Sophie Bracmard:

Animation isn't bad, but careful with the first camera moving. It's no use and it's very distracting.

Kamal Bhattacharjee:

Oh!!! realy nice story telling..... just awesome.....

Diane Aarts:

great job, love using the shadow to cut to the next scene!

Kai Huai:

love the direction of the scene. I think it will be great for the guy to reconnect back at least once to the boy at the end of the scene. now he looks drifted off away after the lady came. The boy thought process is a little vague. Maybe his expression can be sadder or well.. clearer for what he is feeling at the moment of counsel..
