Danny Kneip:

The lip sync is pretty good, overall, as are the facial expressions. The performance is believable, in general. Watch those fingers. They are both stiff and floaty in different areas. His hips seems to be moving a lot. Work on the anticipation principle - F312, he pulls away from the screen in one movement, instead of leaning in first and then pulling away in parts. And then, F316 and F317, his head snaps from one position to the next. You've created a strong foundation here. Keep animating - you have potential!

Jamal Pollack:

looks loke you left the head on stepped at frame 215

Ian Alexander Hanson:

nice setup and staging. nice change into nuclear.

Nuclear gesture is late and not fast enough.

He appears to be squatting.

Need better control of the head.


Looks pretty, however the animation needs some work. Try to avoid twinning the arm movements during "this is great", use more of a 3/4 angle instead of dead on. Create more pose to pose movements with clearly defined holds to eliminate that swimmy feeling.

Darnell Raymond:

I like his expressions alot, i think there was alot of movement with no pause inbetween
