hey there dom, Its really disapointing that not alot of people have seen this, you managed to pull together some nice stuff this year and you should be proud you got through it with a reel like this. I would recomend that people take the time to download this and check it out.

The content of the reel was ok, however the presentation of it needs a lot of work. First and foremost, red text is a big NO NO. That will bleed all over the place on a VHS. Also, you when you rendered out to Quicktime, you didn't render with the High Quality option enabled, thus bringing down the quality of the reel quite a bit. I think you could spend less time on the turntables of the models, too much was spent there and the wireframe shots were difficult to see, which is what is important in a modeling reel. Also when you do the close up shots of the models, you should show those flat shaded and with a wireframe pass. I'm not interested in seeing your texturing skills if I'm going to hire you as for a modeling position. Textured models also make it difficult to discern what is modeled and what is textured.

Fix those things and you'll have a much better reel, not that it is bad now, but it does need some work. Good luck.

hey dom! good going man....i especially like the details u put in the robot. good luck for your job hunt!

When it comes to your reel it's not about personal preference, it's about presenting your work in a profesional manner. You never know who will be watching your reel and on what kind of screen, so presenting it in a manner in which will be most suitable for pretty much every situation is what you need to do. Ignoring that fact will only hurt you.

uh ok....just never thought red titles would ruin a reel
