Sarah Kenny:

I really liked the range of emotions expressed on your characters' faces, and the lip sync had its moments of being synced up well.
Overall, it felt very unfinished. Parts of the animation appear in slow-mo and others are very fast. There was some popping on the rigs where they were taken out of stepped strait into a drastic change of movement, and the left rig's wrist control does some crazy things.

Eric Raffle:

you do know that your not allowed to add any sound effects before or after the given audio only silence, but as far as animations go it was not ready for the competition and not realistic at all, go to YouTube at watch this link

Justin Jones:

I'm sure the extra sound is not necessary. The poses felt unrealistic, and no effort was done to finish up the animation after the blocking phase.

Maurice Haywood Jr.:

the standing positions needs some work but the scene is cool
