Chiyo Hanasi:

this one made me blow air out my nostrils

Jonathan Fontaine:

Some parts are really good, like the all man body expression in the second part

The shark attack sould benefit to be more intense and snappy.. a sit is now it seems a bit slow and clumsy.. it s also a bit disturbing how he just grab his head haha

Aaron Clement:

I love the gag...brilliant!

Caitlin Carpenter:

Really nice work! Love the gag with the shark.

John M:

YES! Love it.



Ying Herng Chia:

Really liked the idea and the body language in this.
For the girl's turn from frame 70 ~ 100, it might look less awkward if she turns in the other direction.

Thiago Augusto Trevisan Guedes:


Adam O:

I can really see some great anticipation of the poses in this! And that shark haha, didn't catch it the first time.

Stanley Huang:

Really cool shot, I think the timing doesn't work out though. It's hard to believe he didn't notice the girl being eaten. I suggest either having the shark eat her a bit later, when he's fully turned away, or have him turn away earlier, so it is clear the the audience that he doesn't notice the girl being eaten while he is doing his monologue.

Jaime Santana:

Top 10 for sure, this is hilaaaarious.

Lola Robey-Levine:

Love the concept, really funny! I think sometimes the framing and character positioning didn't do the expressions any favours, the body language was great but it would have been nice to be able to read the guy's face more consistently
