@Juan: I'd say that pose at the beginning looks at little odd. I seems like his torso and head are tilted a bit too far in opposite directions. The swing also needs more of a follow through to it. He's putting his whole body into it, so his torso should be fully rotated and his arm should be fully extended for a moment before he pulls himself back. I guess also more overlap on the torso when he's teetering on the edge at the end, before he falls.
@Steven: Yours is coming along pretty well, all the basic stuff seems ok. Are you going to add him looking back up at the fly at the end?
@Emily: Your torso looks fine to me, nothing looks too weird about it.

@Juan: I think the guy still freezes in place a bit too much when he's looking inside the card about 1 second in. Have him move his hands or his head or something a little. Maybe even his cog.
Btw, the texture thing with the Louie set does not effect you if you're on a PC right? I'm going to grab it now.

The setting is up! You are now free to animate your shots. Don't forget to reference the setting and the rig. Do not import anything or try to make your own sets!! I have set up the cameras as well. Each camera corresponds to your shot. Good luck guys!

@Jason: I think that looks fine, although your guy's skin is much shinier than Emily's for some reason. Probably just the extra light.
@Steven: You're pretty much finished. You can play around with the facial expressions some more if you want I guess. Also with the car rocking thing: I have it rocking more now because of some stretching issues on the arms (the pulling back part lets me put his hands farther back to avoid stretching the arms too much while still keeping them on the car).

Here are some shots with the lighting that felt right to me. I used the directional light that Emily set up, but I added a few other shots to get a feel that i thought represented the feel of the time of day for our sequence. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks!
My comments aren't showing up for whatever reason, but anyways, here's mine now. @Emily: I think you have everything you need. Anything you add now is up to personal preference at this point. I'm curious as to how you solved the problem with the trees not showing up though.

Still needs some work, but I'll be working on that tomorrow and the rest of the week. I think that it's coming along with the fixes that Raquel mentioned. And Emily thanks for the crits earlier, they helped a lot too. If you guys see this let me know what you think about it please.
To see it bigger you may need to click on the YouTube button on the player and it should go to YouTube. For some reason it loads to blogger pretty small... and it won't make a larger view. I'll look into that later but for now here it is.
