William Barry Eggington:

neat idea.

Ramsey Parks:

I liked the facial expression, but I felt that you could have done more movement with the characters especially with the first one.

Ed Seager:

Very good idea :)

Michael Raiti:

good effort, put in some more time and it could be awesome!

Ian Alexander Hanson:

Like the setup and his looking around at the machine with "this is great" works well.

Need more body / spine in both characters.

Cut from wide shot to CU is confusing because it breaks the continuity / angle. Actually I'd have him speaking right from the start.

Also could use some work on fast vs. slow movements.

I personally would have had the guy strapped down and call out "nuclear" while he's going under it.

Good ideas going there!


Relatable story, however in regards to animation, needs improvement. The tray's movement works very well. Doc's character is too stiff and lacks the fundamentals (even if its a robot, there are basics that need to be followed). Marty's facial animations are off to a great start. They eye movements and brows are bringing life to the character, the mouth movements are detracting as are lack of upper body movements. I get the unable to move in the machine part, however if the character is going to be moving their head, there will still be upper body movements in the shoulder area and torso. The mouth shapes need to be more defined, possibly more exaggerated. The mouth shapes are critical in telling the character story, he seems far too cheery compared to the dialogue, pulling the corners down during the dialogue would help.

Joel Murphy:

great acting with his eyes looking around, but he could benefit from a couple of blinks
