Acting/Dialogue test - for critique

Heya, my name is Kent Alfred and I am currently working full time at Reel FX in Dallas, TX. I had some free time tonight while the wife and kid are away so I thought it would be fun to do a little animation test and get people to critique it! I usually end up starting tests and never finishing them, but maybe this will help motivate me a little more.

Please feel free and open to critique this to your heart's desire. Any and every eyeball in this world matters, so comments are welcome!

Ok, so right now I'm just concerned with posing and timing. Some facial has been added for clarity.

What do you think?

Kent,

This is coming along very nicely! I think the only bits that strike me as off is :

"any at all"... the stationary hips deaden this line. If you move the hips forward, it may accent the phrase some more.

"For a week".. he looks screen right, and I think he loses some of his intensity.

I hope these are on target. Keep it up! I get working on my scenes when the wife and kids are out of the house, too! No distractions!

Geoff
