Nice idea.

Leah M:

Oh snap

I love the idea that he's sitting in the room waiting for judgement for whatever happened. His face and head movements are really well done and the scene/story is really intriguing. The sway at the beginning to show the character was walking out was nice to add as well.

My only criticism i that at first I couldn't tell what happened. because the chair in the scene wasn't seen in the next scene with he character i wasn't sure if he was part of the group of men in the picture or something else. Though I pieced it together maybe it would be a bit easier if you put just the edge of the table. But the lightening matched how this was set up so that was nice for consistency.

Great work!

Adam Bartholomew:

The ANIMATION itself is actually pretty great, but the opening you gave it does it a huge disservice. The PNG image looks really poor in terms of aesthetic quality, and doesn't prepare the viewer for the next scene. Opening aside, the acting is fantastically subtle, only perhaps missing a little more mouth movement and a few well-timed blinks!

Arpan Mahor:

it ok to focus on the storytelling, no need to turn it into a comedy scene.
