Great work all round....but...that opening shot is a masterpiece!

masterpiece? It is perfectly alright, but i really think you guys are judging with your ears.. to me it is the voice performance that sells the piece, which is most likely taken from some movie.
never the less, a good idea and it works, but try watching it without sound, it is no better then the rest, which are quite good

I think maybe you need to watch it several more times. You say the voice performance sells the piece. For me, the way the animator has captured the voice performance sells the piece. The subtle, emotional nuances. The great use of the principle of secondary action. I think your detraction of this piece is, perhaps, harsh.

Yes - the opening animation is amazing. I'm not even an expert but that whole piece was a joy to watch over and over again - and I don't know why. In fact, and I hate to say it, it makes the others look below par in comparison.

Maybe, however I never intended to sound like I thought it was bad in anyway.
Just thought that "Masterpiece" and "the best thing I have ever seen" was abit over the top.

To me, it is on par with the others. Saying that the voice performance sells the piece, was a stupid statement! I agree.

However i think, the the realism in the voice performance is what makes it so convincing(along side with the nice animation) It always seams to impact people when there is a good realistic VP behind the animation, which is why using interviews as VP for a short, works a treat!(as i have always recommended for my students) And as a package, the first animation is the most entertaining of them all.

And no, I don't need to watch it again. I know what to look for, and I wouldn't state this if I hadn't already studied the picture. actually i think the facial expressions are a bit dull and they are quite repetitive.

Dreamworks is not currently looking for a huge group of new animators. That does not mean there is no market.

EDIT:
and btw, I saw the showcase the other day and that opening shot hooked me as well. Amazing.
imo the handheld camera (that actually feels real and doesn't distract from the shot) and the overall dynamics and variety of the shot make it really stand out.
Just the planning for this might have taken ages. They go from being in two different rooms, to face-to-face conflict, back to two different rooms (that are different than the previous two) all in one seamless flow. Two characters, multiple rooms, several emotional changes. The characters naturally transition from independent activities to direct confrontation and back again. Then on top of all THAT, the animation is great and sincere, not cliche. There's actual acting
