James Choi:

Really like the snappiness of the movements. The sphere clipping through her stomach is pretty noticeable, maybe next time use a blend shape.

Pagiel Israel:

Really like the facial expressions of the first character dialog. just needs a little more polishing.


Very strong personality in both characters. Understand them right off the bat

Elisabeth Janerka:

Nice animation, but I feel the woman's hand gesture/pose on "this is about you" is very contradicting to what she's saying. I feel it would be better if she did the gesture towards the girl on the couch

Edd Jones:


Khalifa Abdullah Al-mana:

The first cuts on the Character with green T-shirt works well .. its emphasis the character personality and the overall story! Great work. Top 3 for sure !!!
