great start but the arm breakes the illusion

Kendra Kaye Coffey:

The scene is really pretty but the animation itself needs work. It starts really excellent with the opening scene but when his face is close up the mouth is moving but there is no secondary action. The body should shift a little as he talks.

Timothy Muller:

Hi there. My advice for you is to strengthen your contact poses. Practice contrapposto and line of action. I'm not sure if you designed the environment, but almost any animation can be successful without an environment, so make sure to primarily budget your time for characters since they are the main focus.
Also check out Ed Hook's "Acting for Animators" if you haven't already.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed watching this. Keep the work up. Cheers!


I don't understand the beginning. It doesn't tie in with the actions in the dialogue, but I do like the dance he does. During the talking there is not a lot of movement in the head or body of both characters. Something to try is work with the body and get all the right movement and emotions in the characters first before doing any lip-sync and when its good and can tell the story with out works you can add in the lip-sync. Also I think the dance would work much better at the end of the clip when he says he's the dance instructor.

Rhi NessaAragorn:

Terrific scene, lighting and rendering. Animation could use an improvement though

TJ Askew:

I can see you put a lot of work into this, but your fundamentals need practice. With this amount of effort, learning the fundamentals of animation will push you through the sky.

Lucy Acland:

The rending is pretty, but there is more to animation than just moving the lips.
