A friendly space to receive and give feedback on each other's character animations. All skill levels and tools welcome.

Please note that all posts have to include a question or request for feedback in the TITLE, not comments. Your submission also has to be a character animation, video editing and animatics are not allowed.

Welcome to /r/animationcrit, a friendly space where you can post your animations and receive feedback!

RULES:

  • Your post has to be an animation created by you.

You cannot post someone else's work, commercial work, etc. Your post also has to include an animation in some stage of progress.

Animation in this case is defined by creating the illusion of movement through a rapid succession of handcrafted images. Recordings of your screen does not count as animation, low effort animation has to take rule 4 into account.

  • Title has to include a question or request for feedback.

This is a forum for giving and receiving feedback, and in order to encourage conversation around an animated piece the post needs to include a specific question or a request. It is not enough to simply post "This is my animation", the post has to show that you are interested in hearing what people have to say about it.

Here are a few examples of what you could ask: "How can I improve this animation?" "What's missing in this animation?" "What do you think about the art style?"

  • Title should NOT include inquiries for likes/views/shares.

We will assume that you are posting to this subreddit to grow and improve as an animator, and then likes/views/shares don't matter. If you are looking to share your animation with the world, try posting to /r/animation.

  • Animatics/storyboards have to be marked as such.

We welcome animation that is work in progress, however we ask that you describe where you are in the progress using one of these words in the title: storyboard, animatic, boardomatic, leica reel, blocking, or a similar term you think suits.

If your work is simply "low effort", meaning it's more of an image slide show than an animation, this will not count as an actual animation. Animation needs to convey the illusion of movement to count as such, image slide shows does not accomplish this.

  • Be considerate. Treat each other like you would a friend, use polite language and don't be rude.

Which pieces should I include in my demo reel?

Hello all!

New here, I'm an animation student whos almost finish with school and I was hoping I could get a little help on what to include in my demo reel. I have my art station linked down below and would appreciate help on which pieces I should include and which to polish.

For example I'm not happy with my boba animation and I'm not sure if I should spend time polishing it or just not include it in the demo reel. The piece are in order of oldest to newest with the two newest being works in progress. Would appreciate any feedback!

Animatic critique needed - An alien visits Earth to decide if it is a good place to live

Link to animatic: https://youtu.be/KVUIqQCxR-E

Hey everyone!

I've been working an this animatic for a short film over the past few months and would be extremely grateful for any and all critique! My main goal with this short is to tell a story about finding your place in the universe, delivering rich character performances, along with a bit of environmental storytelling mixed in as well.

As mentioned in the title, the premise revolves around a tiny alien being who travels to Earth to decide if it would be a good place to live. He quickly befriends one of Earth's many inhabitants: a roly-poly bug who guides him around. As the film progresses we learn more about the alien's motivation for coming to Earth.

I really hope the story can be easily understood as it will be told entirely non-verbally. One of the biggest challenges I've had so far is figuring out the best way to convey information in the alien's antenna hologram. I would love to hear how that reads!

Ok, I've been staring at these shots for too long and it's time for some fresh eyes to give it a look! Thank you sincerely for any feedback and I'm excited to hear what everyone thinks!

Le poids du monde, (The weight of the world) short film

Heyy so a little bit of context, I'm currently a french high school student and this is my first short film, I spent a hell of a lot of time on it since it's on a school project but... Yeah, I tried to make this film on social anxiety and the kind of lost feeling that we go through in high school. It's in french and english, subtitled in french btw.

Any feedback would be really great!
