Who is the character talking to? There's definitely a second voice in the audio track so it doesn't really make sense that she is talking to herself. Also the camera pullback is pretty jarring

You need to hit more mouth shapes. When you watch someone talk, especially a peppy person like the girl in the audio track sounds like, she is going to mouth almost every-other major syllable. Try pushing the moth shapes and maybe animating the head a bit more.

Also, the character could use a bit more life. I understand that you are going for her to be in seclusion, but if you are going to bridge the gap between the audio and the visual, I would try to find a happy medium. Even if she is uncomforatable and rubbing her arms, switching her position, etc.

Good luck.

hi there

not including the 2nd char. doesn't bother me too much, but i think it'd be nice if she showed a little more engagement with the camera--it seems like she is a nervous character, maybe if she could make eye contact for just a split second before turning away, so that it creates a tension between her trying to talk to the camera and being afraid of it.

cheers for the comments
here is an update
hopefully things are a little smoother with the lipsyncing
camera zoom reduced
more looking at camera and more but subtle body animation
added a little bit on the end if its not working let me know:-)
