The guy is really creepy!

Your shot is looking great, the only thing I would say is that the shot is a tad too busy, as in there is always something moving so try and find a few places where you could just hold the characters in one position.

I cant wait to see more of your stuff.

I know this may sound strange in an animation context, but I think your characters are over-acting. A bit like William Shatner when he appeared in Family Guy (Not as over the top, obviously). Don't get me wrong, your animation is really good, you just need to be more subtle with the core body movement.

I agree with YashaP, "busy" is the appropriate word here. I have the Keith Lango VTS tutorial vids (Hugely helpful). He says an animation scene is like a mountain range. The peaks (keyframes) are never the same height. Instead they build slowly until you hit that main peak (the storytelling pose).

I hope you understand what I'm saying, cos I'm starting to confuse myself.

Best of luck!
