I am in the process of making my character rigging demo reel and I would like to ask what a good character rigging should contain. What the recruiter would like to see? How can I show my scripting knowledge? Should the VHS/DVD be sent with a paper that describes also in words my rigging process? Do I need a final render with animation?

It would be nice to have a detailed description of what a good character rigging demo reel would have.

Thank you very much

sauzer,
One approach I took with my rigging reel was use screen capture software such as Camtasia that records your actions from your desktop. Import the footage into say After Effects and crop it to fit the right screen size for video. I speed up the footage so that you don't bore the viewer. I've gotten mixed reviews when it comes to showing script usage. Try to show something that is easy for the viewer to understand that would take little to no explanation on what its purpose is. Hope that helps some.

heya Sean :)

my demo reel is due on Monday, so I'm stressed, sleep deprived, and manically vascillating between being ecstatic at being so close to finishing school and being terrified of what happens if no one likes my reel ;)

Don't sweat it, you'll do fine. Can't wait to see the finished product. If you have half the talent that I see come out of your school, you'll blow the competition away. :applause:
