Dylon Valjalo:

I really liked the very cartoony and stretched movements that were in here, though I feel that they might have been misused at certain times. At frames 66-100 I feel that that expression and movement was too drastic for something that was said so calmly. I also feel that the last jump at frame 369 was off on the audio and his reaction. Overall i do think it was a solid piece.

Stanley Watt:

Entertaining, but a bit over-acted. The characters seem floppy and puppet-like rather than living. Balance issues, these may be stylistic choices however.

Ramsey Parks:

I feel like the jumps were really unnecessary and the second jump he could have jumped backwards to show fear of the object.

Nicole Brettell:

Don't see a cute teddy being nuclear...

Louis Parker:

I liked the movements even though they didn't seem need so much. The same effort could have been put in movement that matched the dialog. Good job though!


Bodies seem to float... timing needs work...use more holds!

Ian Alexander Hanson:

Like the two sides of table concept.

Camera too distant. Good posing ideas. Need better spine work. The legs up and kicking is good, but only once. Watch arcs.
