I'm always going to give technique 4 stars or better because I know from experience how hard it is to do this.

The Background - Nice subtle movements of the objects in the background to give weight to the movement in the clothing. At first glance you wonder why her dress and his pants-leg are moving as much as they are, but the fact that those purple chandelier-things are moving suggests a draft in the room. That said, could probably turn it down a touch.

Angelina. Her eye movements seem very robotic. They shift on perfect intervals which takes a lot of life out of her expression. You might want to add a blink next time. The way she is looking without blinking almost makes her look paranoid. Maybe that was what you were going for? The movements look okay otherwise.

Matthew - His animation also looks okay. One thing you could do is when you make the shadow for his leg, merge that layer with him as well. That way when he moves his leg, the shadow moves with it. Normally it wouldn't be an issue, but in this particular composition it stands out. At least to me.

I notice that when your animation loop starts over there is a subtle shift in everything. You can really see it on the purple things in the background.

One thing that I do in After Effects to prevent that so that the animation can loop over and over fluently is to reset the last key frame on every pin that is controlling movement (assuming you are using the puppet warp function.) You can either do that, or copy the first keyframe and paste it at the end. That way there is no subtle pop or jerk when the animation starts over again. It is fair to mention that it only happens with the purple things in the back and not on anything else from what I can tell. So maybe you just forgot? It happens. Sometimes you don't see mistakes until after everything is all done. At that point it's not worth going back and fixing it. I just keep it in mind for my next comp.

It kind of sucks if you have a lot of stuff going on in the picture, but this one doesn't look that busy so it should not take long to do that.

I'm not sure if you used an expression for the eye movements so that it would repeat throughout the animation, but it might be better to either find an expression that allows for intermittent movement, or to physically do it yourself.

It wouldn't be a bad ider to put some lights on the two of them as well. Or maybe screen a layer with a subtle color light.


All in all a 'nice' animation.

Yes, this one was hard, because how do I create an animation in a static scene? haha

The only way I know how is to crop the objects that are going to move out of the scene.  Then in the empty spaces left behind I paint over with colors the same as the object they were obstructing so that when they move that space is filled.  It is extremely difficult and time consuming to do it properly.  So I feel ya.
