Brent Forrest:

Ahhh... I like it

Michael O'Brien:

The world is very cohesive and well done, the animation is smooth, but the one thing that continues to bother me is why is Disney so sad and full of angst right now? He seems rather disappointed looking at Mickey and that doesn't make sense to me. You've got a neat idea going here but some clarification wold be mice. Maybe he just found out he has lung cancer? Looks like this is the Walt that's just starting to make a name for himself, though. That Walt always came off as full of vigor and determination with an insurmountable spirit.

roy cobn:

is that supposed to be walt disney? nice render and enviroment

James Trimm:

nice concept! he seems sad?

Amartya Mukherji:

Wow.. What a wonderful way to pay respect to the legend. Although its an animation contest, but your presentation is definitely going to earn more stars. The way you made his signature mustache and back brushed hair makes it believable. The detailed BG with the light box and X sheets gives the shot more depth story wise.

Apart from that, the Animation is also very smooth and nice. This is one of the best entries this month.

Robert Huffmon:

If the lip sync was just a bit better this would be perfect (Don't get me wrong, it's still really really good). Easily my highest rated vote. Great job! Expressions, mannerism, and body language fit the audio clip very well. Body movement is very fluid and believable. Love the gray scale texturing, really adds to the young Walt Disney feel and sets the time well, I love the camera fade in the corners as well.

Paula Decanini:

Alright! Liked this one a lot. Really fits the tone of the dialogue. If I were going to say anything, it would be to hit the mouth shapes of phonemes a little harder, for example the hard "F" sound in "sphere".

Benjamin Osei Boateng:

Cool work bro

Steve Kimbrey:

Really nice piece. Nice smooth and flowing movements. I just feel like his arms are a little too locked to the chair sometimes.

Indrajit Pal Chaudhuri:

Awesome work.... Awesome concept......

Sandra Tapia:

Nice animation. Love the concept.



ben malberg:

wow beautiful set, model, and camera work. Nice concept too. I wish I could see more of his face though. Great job.

Alec Farai Munhapa:

well done lad :)


Great work, one of my favorite so far, love your staging

John Kennedy:

really nicely done! only thing that stood out to me was there was no visual representation of the tapping at the end but otherwise really solid subtle piece

Ruth Agada:

The best so far!!!!! I love everything about this!!!
