After posting the first animatic for The Makeover I got some feedback from a couple of animation forums and I went back to the storyboard and changed a few things.
The suggestions that I received were in regards to the pacing, things started pretty slow and then went too quick, so I changed the story a little to address this. There was also the issue with showing exactly what the character wanted at the beginning, I added a scene at the start to help establish that.
Another thing that was mentioned was having a balance between the beginning, middle and the end of the story. Right now I think the ending is a bit quick, almost a surprise, I thought about how I could make it longer to balance out the other two acts but what I came up with felt unnecessary and just dragging things on so I left it as it was before.
I am interested to hear what people think of this new animatic.

Please excuse the laughter sounds at the start, it doesn’t sound right but I haven’t found a better sound effect yet.
