John Toland:

love it, one of the best - the lack of facial change on the good guy is actually great


Animation is great throughout, I dig the contrasting character pose choices. My fave part is the setup for the second shot, that unimpressed gaze, hehe, works so well. Love the strong emphasis on the F in funny, really suits the character when he forces that word out - Nice work.

Nathan Ethington:

Love the expression on the 2nd guy. That made me give it a top score!

Nikolai Jonasson:

Love the character designs and animation, the scenes are really well done as well.

Craig Petty:

Great characters, lip synch, and animation...love the juxtaposition of the characters...yes...I just typed "juxtaposition"... =D

Joshua Kaberline:

Your characters are spot on for the voices! The mouth is great, matches perfectly with the audio. The setting, the modeling, it’s all great!

Pablo García:
