Hi there!
I'm nineteen, I'm a self-educated 3d artist and I just finished school. These days I completed my first demoreel and i'd like to get some feedback from the 3d pros, so I signed up to cgtalk. . .
I plan to study design . . . if someone can give me some advices how to start . . . which college's the best . . . or whatever - plz tell me!
atm i'm thinking about studying at the artcenter in Pasadena, California . . . (30mb - mpg1 - 640x480 - stereo) (13mb - DivX - 400x300 - mono)

criticism is welcome!

Thanks for checking out my demo reel... I would like to download yours but I'm on dial up right now and cant. I did check out your site... looks like your interested in advertisment and product concepts. There was some cool stuff- I liked the lego ships. As for Schools I just finished up at the academy of art in San Francisco... It's a pretty good school. It seems to me that I see a lot of good demo reels being posted here by people who went to Vancouver Film school. To me thats an indicator that it must be good school.

Well, you cant get much better than Art Center. Good luck.
The character animation is nt your strong suit, but pretty good for a pre college kid. The reel is filled with some pretty sweet effects and lighting work... you seem to like smoke and glowy lights and particles and all that.
I'd like to see a reel out of you thats all interesting visual effects that you concieved and designed yourself. Kind of abstract and experimental. Anyway, thats the strongest stuff I see on THIS reel.
