I have rigged a character and his eyes, eyelids, mouth shapes, are all parented to controllers inside of null objects.

For example to make the character blink I have parented the position value of his eye lids to a point controller inside a null object. Inside of the scene he is in I keyframe the point controller and can see it moving but nothing happens.

Here are a few screenshots of what I am running in to:

This is the master comp where the character is placed in to the scene:

This is the character comp where all of the controllers are. You can see where I have keyframes and the values change but he doesn't blink

This is inside of the head pre comp where the controllers are parented to:

I am also attached the project file as well in order to helpfully find some sort of expression or something to solve this issue.

Thank you all tremendously in advanced,
