Jessica "Jess" Jerome:

lip sync needs more work

Michael Kristiansen:

The lipsync seems wierd to me. Think you over-animated, too many keys and movement.
Try and have a look at this guideline:

Andrés Rosel:

Check the lips, they aren't in sync. (:

Iain Wilson:

hmm this is out of sync

Michael Launder:

this piece could have benefited a lot from reference, its pretty easy. take a camera or smartphone and film yourself acting out the scene, the look at the way your shoulders and body move, if you do then you'll find out why lots of good things to practice before you enter the competition

Gabriel Haran:

Out of sync.

Dominic Rayner:

Floaty animation, lip synch is mistimed and busy looking.


Lipsynch is a little off

Megan Huggins:

The lip sync is very out of sync

Jay Jörg Smith:

Try to find some rules on how to animate lip sync. You dont need that much movement to show spoken things.
