BJ CRAWFORD

LOCATION: CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

Congratulations to BJ Crawford, winner of the 11 Second Club August Competition! This was really an amazing month, with a nearly record-setting number of entries, and the most entries we've ever seen above a 5-star rating. Really nice work, you guys. BJ's entry, as you can see from the comments, simply blew the voters away. The performance matches the audio perfectly, and the addition of subtle details like the cigarette and the phone cradled on the shoulder really bring it to life.

What is an eCritique?
The eCritique® tool is an innovative key element in the Animation Mentor program. Each week, a professional mentor will provide their students with a newly recorded video critique on their weekly animation assignment.  This provides valuable insight, feedback and suggestions on ways to improve students’ weekly assignments and animation skills. In addition to viewing their own critiques, students may also view the critiques of their peers, learning from their mistakes and successes as well.
