    Well, it seems the stickman fell on his own. Maybe he felt dizzy -> should add an effect on his head, like a rotating spring.

    I don't know why the screen goes red when he falling. Getting hit by a ball, that's OK, but falling like that, no. (except if there was a deadly spike on the floor)

    The ball has two different physics in this anim.
    -going down regulary on a medium distance
    -going down pretty fast on a very short distance.

    This little contradiction could shock many of us, as me. Try to change the behavior of the ball toward gravity on one of the phases.

    Anton has some good points, but I disagree on what he said about the dizzy effect. You animated the figure's reaction pretty well after being hit with the ball, and I could tell that he was disoriented before he fell. If you can convey feelings like that without the use of cartoonish effects, then I think you're better off. Of course, that shouldn't stop you from adding effects like a rotating spring or circling birds if you feel it fits the mood and style of your animation.

    Just my two cents!
