Hello all,

I used to be very active on this forum a few years ago. That was before an intensive job (up to 800 frames of CG animation per day) and three kids. However, the job I had has just come to an end so I have a little more time on my hands again. I'm hoping for a little help putting together a new reel if anyone can spare the time.

I've been though lots of the shots I've done over the last few years, but as you can imagine, working at between 400 and 800 frames per day, there's not a lot of polished stuff to choose from.

I've included links to my old reel from 2004, all of the walks I did for the TV series The Beeps, and several shots which are (I think) the best of the bunch from what I've been working on over the last few years.

I'd really appreciate any help in putting a new reel together. I guess the first thing is to simply knock out any scene/shot/walk etc which drags the quality down, then we can get so sorting out the order of things. I'll be more than happy if you all say X is rubbish, Y is weak, Z doesn't do you any favours, but W is not too bad, so please be as harsh as you feel like being. I'd rather have 90 seconds of my best stuff than 4 minutes of average.

Here are the files.
