Howard Cameron:

Looks like most of the time was put into Buttons. Nice work on him.

The Dog however is rushed, his paws are floating off the ground.

Ruben Uggla:

I think him stepping quickly back again, in the end, was unnecessary.

Fernando Incetta:

Not bad. The staging is good and the characters convey proper personality. Lip Sync should be way more exagerated according with how snappy the rest of the animation is. Try to animate the dog's body at least a little, specially in strong beats like the "No!" at frame 210.


The movement is very fluid!
