View Full Version : Finaly, my 2008 animation reel!

05-09-2008, 12:01 AM
Hi everyone,

My name is Elad Izhaki and this is my first reel... shrug...
After working for almost six years in one company named "Gravity VFX", Israel, Ive decided to, well, move on and finaly edited a short reel (I didnt put all my stuff there, I mean, six long years...)

I hope you guys like what you see, would love to hear your comments.
Thanks to Ranimate for hosting my reel.


Right-Click And Save as... (15 megs)... oh, yeah, and turn speakers on! (http://www.ranimation.com/helados/Elad_Izhaki_reel2008.mov)

Works on reel are property of Gravity|VFX, Israel.

I agree with my buddy here, Front page material, the variety of things you have is awesome.

05-09-2008, 01:16 AM
That was awesome!!! keep at it.

Im so glad you've finaly gathered a reel for yourself, and and damn good one, if you dont mind me saying.

I like the way you edited the reel, paying attention to the rhythm and beat, super talent, that is what you are.
I give you... 5*? and I would LOVE to see it plugged like the former comments, the world should know who Elad Izhaki is.
Good luck on your new adventures bro and, oh yeah, if you lose touch Ill personaly hunt you down ;)

great reel man, nice work, good luck in the future..
it is always fun to see someone from our area in the front page!

05-13-2008, 09:05 PM
Haha, it's cool to see commercials that I loved, and know that you've made them. Amazing reel. I have to say though, your 3D animations are superior to your 2D ones. Both are great, though.
Keep it up, man. Awesome reel.

05-13-2008, 09:48 PM
A great reel, indeed. Kudos to the max!

Anyway, I was wondering what tune you had playing in the reel? I really digged it.

Good luck job hunting. :)

rename your file so it has your name in it. right now it's just called reel2008.mov
ooohhh... done downloading...

very nice work. the penguins are particularly good.
happy hunting,

05-16-2008, 06:08 AM

Don't know why I didn't think about it, thank you for that :banghead:
