Dominic Rayner:

Great work, Freddie!!

James Trimm:

good, this seems a bit pose-to-pose... but overall, good foundations

Erin Goddard:

creepy... lol

Timothy Muller:

Hello there. My recommendation for you would be to practice your posing skills. Focus on contrapposto and line of action. Also check out Ed Hook's "Acting for Animators" if you haven't already.
Keep up the good work. Cheers!

Gil Carlos:

Amazing idea!


It looks like you put a lot of thought into staging, lighting, and and camera placement. I like the character designs and the idea.
Your poses are great and the animation is solid, my only concern is the pose in which he points to an imaginary watch. To me this feels like overacting.

Lucy Acland:

Funny idea, but it doesn't feel like he's looking at the boy.
