Well Katie, I think your efforts at trying subtle animation are succeeding. This is a very nice bit of motion and acting. I do have a question about an aspect of the scene though. We have Stanley staring off into space at the beginning of the scene, then he notices something that captures his attention (his food coming or possibly his date), and ends by staring in the same direction as he started. I think after he settles from placing his napkin, he should end looking in the same direction as whatever caught his attention.This was the only part of the acting that confused me. If you intended for him to not end looking at the created point of interest for some other story reason, then kindly ignore my confusion. I look forward to seeing some more of your animations.
Haha, you know, come to think of it I've never even thought about that before! You are completely correct and I hate the ending of this animation anyway so I'm going to change that... eventually XD Hope you're doing well, dude!
