Donald Marks:

Stellar job. The only spot I can see to improve is the "We're gonna KILL YOU!" line. Maybe exaggerate his mouth shapes and facial expression for this line. Had to play this a number of times before I could find ANYTHING to improve on. Crazy good, best so far for me.

Dominic Rayner:

Very flamboyant but shows ability


Awesome work.

Jordan Lewers:

Ooh, I'm a fan of this one

Isadora Morales Chaves:

Nice poses and animation. The audio is a bit off.

Fernando Incetta:

Great acting! Loved the drags and the stretches. You really squeezed all the juice of Malcolm Rig.

Iqtidar Ali Siddiqui:

nice work !

Jason Wellings:

Another in my top three, great stuff. The little hop off the table is great, feels very natural. Only a few notes. First the moment when he says "I be like...dead!" doesn't read all that well in the face. I struggled with this part myself for a while because you want a big, exaggerated motion to get into the "dead" pose but in this case all of the dialogue leading up to it is lost. I love your "dead" pose though, wish I'd pushed mine more looking back now.

The other thing is the walk at the end. I'm sure you wanted the legs to be bent like that but for me they just feel a little toooo bent and the hips a little too low.

Good luck and great work though :)

Alavizadeh Shahrokh:

good work of stretch and squashes... follow throughs are good but i think there should be a little more fix frames..anyway keep doing man

Joel Murphy:

no guns in the school! bad teacher! hahaha, but GREAT animation!
I'm sure if teachers carried guns, there would be a lot more learning going on.

Davit Martirosyan:

Nice acting choese


cool :)

John Leland:

very nice arcs/follow through. fun to watch this one


Martial Andre:

Great one. I think you can improve your lipsync. I don't really feel that he is talking sometimes. And i'm not sure about your walk on "lets go kill..." feel to overacted and not enough natural, even if it's a cartoony animation. The feet are going up a bit too much and you never have the feeling of a straight leg . It woulg give you a bit more rythme variations as there are a lot of pose changes at the end.
Good job anyway !

Connor Leuck:

I think the final camera is a bit too far away. I'd like to see the characters face better. Maybe if you used a pan in.

William Harrison:

Really great cartoony movement love it!

Olalekan Genesis Aleem:

everything's great except the walk , he didnt seem to have much weight going on there.

Imon Branch:

that is good
