Great start Howard! I'd make the start when he moves to the fridge a bit more bouncy as it now looks as if he glides there. I would also cut down the titletext-time a bit, since it takes a bunch of repeats to see all the details it's annoying to have the titles take half the lenght. Also I'd lighten up the shadows on his face a bit when he blinks. Nicely synced sounds. I'm eager to see the rest.

Nice start. Just one thing, the lighting on his face is not as intense in the close up than when he opens the door. I agree with Fredrikkson. If it's the protagonist your after, I think the camera angle could say it all and just brighten up that shot. Nice work as per usual

Very nice start, I'd agree the walk to the fridge needs to be a bit more like someone walking. I like the way he sleepily blinks in the light - if you increase the light form the fridge a bit that will really bring that out. Excellent stuff.

Default Great as usual.

Wow! If this is "doo-able" I'm def keeping at it
(BTW - I would like a 'Howard' tutorial)
1 Thing I really admire, Howard is that, everything I have seen so far from you has been totally different from the last.

Regards Scraggy
