Tommies 2017: Daniel Quintero creates smooth, natural animation in “Acting Exercise”


This year’s Tommies Awards entries were better than ever. Our members have brought our Long Winter character rigs to life and we are psyched to see the inspiration and creativity from such a diverse community.

Our winners received a ton of great prizes (including free memberships to our new service with unlimited access to 38+ character rigs), and this year we also gave all our winners a free 15-minute e-critique from our CEO Andrew Conroy, an animator with credits in “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs,” and “Life of Pi.”

We are excited to share them with our members! We shared our e-critiques for the People’s Choice Winner and Best Story. Below is the e-critique for Staff Pick Winner for Best Actor in a Leading Role: Acting Exercise by Daniel Quintero. Enjoy!

See you next year at the 2018 Tommies!

*A big thanks to RGB Notes for letting us use their awesome system for the critiques.
