Aaron Clement:

The ending gag is great in this. Feels like he's talking through is teeth a lot. Great creativity.

Sam Baker:

Mouth shapes need work.

Muhammad Arsal:

nice work!

Amartya Mukherji:

nice concept and animation.. Seems to be a genesis character. Hence expressions are subtle and limited. I felt acting could have been a bit more matured.

Gaurav Joshi:

Nice concept.. lipsy seems off.

Abhishek Banerjee:


Matt Horstman:

Great upper face expressions

Vanessa Gonzalez:

Nice! The only thing that needs improvement is the lip sync, really.

Danny Kneip:

The idea is fun, the lip sync needs polishing. Great work on the reporter's mood change.

Ryan D Lowe:

Lip sync shapes are too extreme. Love the though process here!

Richard Clark:

Too teethy on the lip sync. Also, there are moments where the head hits a wall on the performance. Something is strange with his "shaking head" movement. I can't put my finger on it, though. I would shoot reference of this. Interesting idea with the time traveller!


Hahaha.. that reporter :D
Loved it!
Only two things bothered me:
1) On "expression", the mouth was not shaped perfectly.
2) I didnt get the slight expression on his face at 140~ frame :(
Overall, its great animation, nice rendering as well.

Noyan Özkan:

hi, i just wanted to say, when you make some exaggerated lip sync you should have given a bit movemet to the body so that lip sync wont outclass realism.
