View Full Version : Another modeling reel from VFS

06 June 2004, 10:23 PM
hello everyone I just finsihed my student modeling reel from VFS and I would like to share it with everyone here. Let me know whatcha' think about it, Its been a good long year at the school and now I'm gonna go rest for a few days and think up an new project to start working on while I job hunt.

Okay heres a much smaller version, And I'm very sorry about the down load speed but the VFS server is getting slammed right now.If there's any mirrors out there for me and my class mates we would appreciate it.

EDIT: hey I guess my link was going all 404 on me, but its fixed now

Wow Gene! This is incredible work! I can't imagine what a long journey it must have been. I'll bet there were late nights and unimaginable frustrations. At least it all paid off in the end. If anything I've seen deserves front page this is definately it. Good luck in your future endeavours. :thumbsup:

I'll see you tonight for a drink then?

Hihi Gene!!

Congratulations! You worked hard the past 3 terms and it all paid off in a great modelling reel! Thanks for not making your girl ALL t 'n a, but shapely and nicely proportioned! We still need to draw our "not-hot" chicks someday.

Good luck with wherever you apply to, and keep in touch with us!

ohhhh the VFS servers suck..

I'm looking forward to seeing it...6.81k/bs

You might think of recompressing to around 30Mb...72Mb is a bit much even for people on broadband.

Must feel good to be finished.

EDIT: finally finished downloading: Nice stuff Gene, I dig the Guy and Chick, especially the rig test on the guy, looks good. The City felt a little unfinished...but the whole reel had a great presentation, awesome work. I'll pass a link on to my boss.
