    Thanks Wayne, I'll definitely consider those tips. The skid was intentional, but I see what you mean. I'll adjust the timing so it looks like he slams on the breaks before grinding to a halt.

    Great stuff mj.

    You certainly did make it come to life!

    There's just a whole bunch of tiny things that I can see in this one.
    I'll mention just a handful of things as I'm sure you will be able to see more things you can improve in a week or two.

    -Take a look at the preparation on each jump and make sure the amount of stretch in the take off feels like it matches the first spacing gap in the air (and how high it jumps)
    -Look at the arc when he bounces off the corner of the platform on his first attempt at jumping.
    -can you see him skid up to the end of the platform? What could you do to lessen that?

    But really nice stuff - it looks like you had a blast. Keep it up.
