We had a rough cut crit yesterday.

It was very useful to get feedback from different people and to see how far everyone else has got. It's reassuring as I am working from home to see that it's not just me...
Our projects are so different and it is always fun to see them all together, it's always inspiring and I often get new ideas from them.
The voice over is great, I was very lucky to get the services of a professional voice actor who was perfect for the role. This is first time I have seen how the animation looks like with the voice assembled.
It still needs adjusting. I have more recorded voice and I think I will add some more.
The first scene lasts too long , the mayor is walking a bit too slow and I am not sure his pain shows enough. I think I should cut it earlier.
Also when he is in the corner I plan to pan to a close up on his face.
Some of the later scenes that are not animated yet will last longer and have voice over.
Music is missing now. I didn't have exact timing so far and the musician couldn't finish the music. I hope that will happen faster now as it will take the project to a whole new level. I can't wait for this as the composer studied at the Royal College of Music and I really like her work.
