Mike Schanbacher:

Nice work!

Danielle Hope Abrom:

I love how it starts on the letter and it's a great concept! But I would've loved to see his expression when he opened the door!

Catherine Lachepelle:

I LOVE this animation! It is very fluid, very nice; his expressions are dynamic and efficient. I must admit; the staging confuses me a little in the part where he walks (sometimes it is hard to understand in which direction he walks because of the camera movement and the absence of the ground) but other than that, great animation!

Thomas Sayle:

animation is good, related to the sample and enjoyable too.

DD Tannia:

Classic. Love the idea. But his surprised movement body at frame 290 was a bit stiff, not really like it. At frame 350, his expression shouldn't be like that, he's smiling. You could exaggerate his jaw open up.

Nice work anyway.

Howard Cameron:

F153-163 the leg kick feels odd

Timothy Tuttle:

nailed it. LOL

Anais Larocque:

I would have very much liked to see his expression at the "big reveal". :) But I understand why you put it that way.
