Smile My "Take" Assignment

Hey all,

I'm hoping to get some feedback on this assignment I did for my animation class. It's meant to be a "Take", but I added a little bit of acting in it as best as I know. I'm always open to any type of criticism, because I know there's lots I still can learn about animation. There's a link to it in Vimeo below. Is there anything I need to change before I hand it in?

Hey Brittany! Lookin' good! Make sure you watch that you don't get to symmetrical for everything, and make sure his left leg isn't getting stretched out there near the end. On the right track!

Hello Brittany,

I really like some of the posing for the first half of the animation, up to the part where the hands are brought together. They can be pushed more, but are working. The problem after that, is that the characters weight bearing leg pops, slightly moving the body. It is loosing weight, and it becomes unclear what the character is doing.
Things that may help:
1. Don't have the camera left foot straight on to the camera. (Loosing some appeal , and hard to read.)
2. Play with the Y translation more of the body, moving the body up if you want that action.
3. Plan timing for the overlap of the head movement. Right now, it is on the same timing as the body. Think about choices of head first, then body, or body first then head.
4. Once the Head or body gets somewhere, it has to either keep moving that way (can slow down but not stop), or start to react to another movement.
