Instead of swinging the camera every time, I think using cuts would be better.


There’s a lot of nice stuff working well here! Nice snappiness and character posing/ timing. I think something that’s really hurting your piece is the lip syncing. It’s quite off at times. And whine I think the last bit is funny with the slow motion table stuff flying out, it feels a bit strange because the character is still finishing his sentence when the slowmo bit starts. Really awesome work though!

Okay I LOVE what you did at the end with them getting increasingly angry and frustrated! A lot of shorts felt like they were missing that "OOMPH" that comes with the anger, and you nailed it down perfectly!

Unfortonately, the movements feel too stiff and lifeless; if we were strictly judging this by how well the fundamentals of animation are applied, I'd rank this a lot lower. Still, if you can get the movements of the characters to feel more natural, this could be an A+ animation. Keep it up!
