Here's my new demo reel. Let me know what you think.
Nice models and concepts in there, but i would suggest a bit more action and ... different music. I don't know but i suggest that a more upbeat music would add to the athmosphere of the works and to the reel as a whole. Music should add to the experience.
Perhaps some action could be gained by compositing an editing process in the back or something. Or down right animation.
Just my 2 cents. I want to make a reel myself soon so i'm looking at lots of em right now. The ones that stay in my head are the ones that are short and powerful.
Power is nothing without intelligence.
Very true Erik. I've already changed the tunes. I think I'm going to try and edit with more energy... get some quick cuts. Also I think when time permits it I'm going to animate the girl and the green monster having some sort of battle.
Another suggestion would be for you to have some close ups (especially of your best work, like the first one shown) right before the complete model spin. To go over the model starting around the waist up to the face, pausing for a second, then cut to the turnaround. yah,,, i agree that the music just dosnt fit.
