After watching the first one, I think you could tighten up the timing of it. One thing that was sort of weird to me is , why did he jump in front of the bus? Did he want to die?

I like some of the gags, but i think it would have been better if you really nailed a few of them rather than doing a decent job on all of them.

You're right, the timing of the animation could be a little tighter in that first demo, it was our first real project of the year and the first long character animation I did so there is definatly room for improvement. As for the jumping in front of the bus thing.. well I guess he should have hopped away a little instead of neatly placing himself in front of the bus.. I guess I was still a little irritated that a real thief had stolen my real bike recently, so I made sure he didn't miss his bus :) But you're right, that part could have been worked out more.

Thank you for your time, it's much appreciated!
