Smile Animation Career

Hi CGtalk, I'm looking to work in games looking for some advice on my reel.

For example, what to add, take out, polish.

I find myself with little to no direction at all in where one should start in the journey.

Here's my reel

I no longer go to IAnimate. Nevertheless, it's good to get external feed back. When I was going IAnimate didn't have the game program.

I have good mentors, but I know there are great people on the boards who have good insight and direction for games as well.

I love the lip sync poses and acting choices, but the body movement itself seems too floaty for the style you are trying to achieve. Overall good work though!

The head and body drop from 32sec-38 particularly stood out, but there is one or two spots on the dinosaur where it looks like there is an overall steady movement on the one in the background.
Again, though thats about it. I love acting choices, especially in that last shot. Very expressive!
