Hi all!
This is my first demo reel - I've been working on it for the last half a year.
I'll be starting my job hunt soon. Any C&C is appreciated!

Really good! I like compositing, and in your reel you show the final but also all the work you did, I really enjoyed it!

That was very nice reel but the only thing that caught my eye was that the robots didn't have much weight (as they're so light as butterfly). And the red flying robot could have been integrated in the scene a bit better comparing with other sequences. The composition is great.

what's great about your reels is that you created everything from ground up, and not just simple stuff, but top notch quality... which makes it even better... :D :thumbsup:

Fabulous work. As someone else said, the mech looks weightless, those mincing little steps don't suit it at all. It needs to stride with authority. I loved the Creature Crash segment.

rls669: Thanks! The next time I work on such auto-scripts I will look into the weight issue. I need more keyframe animation practice :D

Jigu: Hey man! Yeah will be working on the updated breakdowns. Thanks for the support!

Technically very impressive, and also fun to watch... i love how the ppl in the street are totally unconcerned by the giant robot : )

Great work!

just want to say ur site frontpage looks gr8!!

and just checked ur R&D stuff.for dripping test did u use pflow?..hmm.for some last drops
ripples r bitt off from coming drops.and the way u have lighted the scene..it's little hard to see ripples formed on left of the bowl where drops forms them.
