View Full Version : VFS Animation reel- 'ten minutes or less'

06-21-2004, 07:24 PM
I just completed the 3d Animation and Visual Effects program at Vancouver Film School. Here is my student reel 'Ten Minutes or Less'. The audio is still likely to change a bit. I would love to hear what you all think of the film. Comments and suggestions are appreciated. Please enjoy!

Sam is finally debut. He so Cute ( as you said, haha.. )

It's been quite fun and hard one year, Amanda.
I think you worked really hard and deserve some things.

Wish Good Luck Out There..

Your reel really kicks ass! I'm sorry I tried to smooth out Sam's bum in term 4 hehe he looks great now :bounce: The style of your reel looks spectacular! I'm so happy that I got to know you during VFS, thanx for mentioning 3d43 in your grad speech!

Good luck with everything! Keep in touch ok?

oh yeah that was pretty awesome!!:eek:

great animation, but it was sooo cool to actually see a bit of a story actually happening too. i'm just starting to notice a lot of animations are just being animations for the sake of it without actually having any depth to it, this was actually interesting and entertaining. i can't think of any crits to give, i really loved it.

how long did this take to do?

well done anyway, hope the hard work pays off for you!!:thumbsup:

Thats some great work Amanda. I've enjoyed how your reel has come together and the extra time you put into it has really paid off.

Hi blue eyes!

U still alive!
As I told you, you did a great job. Your artistic side is growing a lot. How many scenes did u add in the little smelly room?
All the best for you but.. why you disappear?
The magnet is not working anymore..
Miss you..

Wow, it turned out super cool. I think you came a long way with your animatin' styles since t4. If I ever start liking sushi, I'm definately ordering from Sammy.

It was great to know you, and good luck with your job hunt.

Hi Amanda,
First of all, that poster of yours kicks serious ass. I always thought your story was so cute, and you are one of the hardest workers I've ever met. Your animation has changed so much since the last time I saw it, you did a wonderful job.

Best wishes from the Northeast,

Heeeellloooo A-MAN-DA!!!

Great to finally see your reel online. Been waiting patiently for it. Everything turn out wonderful and I can still remember you stressing over your animation. See, everything work out just fine... cos of all the work you have put in...

I wish you all the very best... Come visit me in Singapore : )

Hey Amanda,

You're super! Your animation is super! And Sam is super! No matter how much we had to convince you of these things at times, you really are a great animator. Who knew marine biologists could animate?! JA JA JA! You know I'm just teasing. (I have to make sure know, I have that no sense of humour thing!) Honestly though, I totally respect and admire you. You work so hard. You do what you think is right (even J walking!) You're fun and a great friend. You truly made this past year a lot of fun for our class. See you in California...or Australia...or Hawaii...or...who knows where!


PS: I have your hand lotion! You can't leave Canada without it!

Great job Amanda :thumbsup:

Nice to see your reel, I like the flow of your animation!!!

Best Wishes,
