Austin Hambrick:

only change i would make would be to the mouth movement for the words "make" and "advice" otherwise this looks absolutely fantastic!!

Davit Martirosyan:

Nice! Top 5

richard a.:

acting is solid!

Paula Decanini:

That turn-around and rest onto the clasped hands is SMOOTH! Good job on that. The lip sync is off though, and doesn't hit the emphasized parts as well as the body language does. I would like to see the end part where he pulls out the fireworks and makes a disapproving look slowed down and expanded on.

marina xu:

very nice body language, but i miss the lipsync.... !

Divyam Chand:

Great shot....very nice acting for the teacher but the boy is dead still in the seonnd shot...a little movement would have done better. "bit of advice" seems a little off...lip-sync. :)

C. J. Cow:

Great!! Love the animation. Personally I would have preferred to see the chest expansion around frame 150 a little more subtle. Right now it feels to me like you just scaled the body and it's a bit unnatural. Also the boy being completely still in the second shot is a bit distracting. I am just nit-picking, though. Your animation is GREAT!!


Wow! Looks cool! You just could give little bit more time at the end for "t" sound.

Rahul Rishikesh:

Actions are good.could've made better with actions to cover the dead part...boring yo watch lip sync only...good job :-)


The bit where he says "Bit of advice" looks a bit off. It doesn't seem like it moves too much, but overall great animation and story telling



Amartya Mukherji:

This is one of the best 3D shots, this month. Very good indeed.
The acting, the flow, subtle secondary movements are really appreciable. Deserves to be in Top 5.

One more thing. I really liked the way you made chubby look like a grown up man. Thumbs up bro.

Richard Carrillo:

Damn really nice!
Very fluid and appealing. A very outstanding aspect is you didn't make some action at the "imPortant" accent and I think that's very creative, knowing not to act every single accent but the crucial ones.
Good job!

Paula Genta:

Very nice characters and acting

Yurika Nishi-Imai:

This child is in troooouuubllleee~

Leonardo Pereira:

Really amazing. Love your acting, very natural. I think the lip sync from the frame 180 to 200, could be better, " Important decisions..."

But for me the winner of this month


nice animation

srinivasrao v:

animation is good, but lip sync is not proper some places....
