Adrian Winchell:

"meat" is not lipsynced in either spot. I'm not sure the open/ending scenes really helped much here either, focusing more on the animation during the audio would probably have been better. It's a little floaty.

Manuel Jiménez:


Richard Adams:

Too floaty.

Lucas Donaldson:

nice content. some work for later might be to put in some liveliness in the character movements and expressions.


жаль, что анимация слабая. но. сала. сала.

Kendra Kaye Coffey:

Staging and some of the stuff you did with the camera are cool but the Animation of the characters needs more polishing. Too stiff.
