Awesome reel, Dimi baby!

09 September 2005, 11:25 AM
hehehe... top stuff as always dimi ...

i really liked that close-up of amazon girl ass :D

09 September 2005, 11:35 AM

Ah, you mean the infamous 2 pass ass? Even I thought that was a great model! :scream: Those interior scenes done for the challenges are just amazing, and I love how your sense of humor is apparent in a lot of your pieces ~ the backyard flying machine? Lol!!! And, erm...we take it you love coffee??? :scream: Brilliant work!! :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 11:44 AM
Dimi, kick ass reel. Great work :thumbsup:

Why don't I have one of those ?

(runs back to comp to start up various programs and actually finish something)

09 September 2005, 11:51 AM
It looks like a front page stuff and maybe another award... ;)

09 September 2005, 12:27 PM
:blush: :blush: ...guys...really thank u ....i am so happy u like it :bounce:

09 September 2005, 12:54 PM
You are one seriously talented guy! Though I'd definitely consider losing some of the older bits and pieces, some of the chrome flying robots aren't doing you any favours :) Also it looks like you're heading towards specialising in modelling, in which case a few wireframes wouldn't go amiss.

09 September 2005, 01:31 PM
Thanks mattmos ....a friend here suggested to brake it in two reels for modeling and one for post production works....but this must wait until next week...i am moving to new apartment...i don't have not even one machine working..right now...just my small 12'' powerbook..

But thank u ...i will try to do what u are suggesting definitely :thumbsup: .

09 September 2005, 02:00 PM
i will do what u are suggesting definitely :thumbsup: .

Ok give me the mini mac for free,!:bounce: no give me the power book, no no give me the g5!
yeap the g5 will do nicelly!

Thank you in advance!

09 September 2005, 02:55 PM
great reel :)

09 September 2005, 03:13 PM
Really amazing work Dimitris, your skill as a modeler really blows me away. I have a couple of things that might make this a more solid piece.

The first thing that struck me was the music, it is upbeat and fun which is good. It really sounds like the low end is overdriven (almost sounds like my speaker is ripped) which I find distracting.

The second thing that distracted me were the changes in title placement. The sidebar titles were really hard to read (watched it twice cause I concentrated too much on trying to read them). I would suggest sticking with one format/style for the titles (the ones on the 'Flying Machine' and 'Sparrow' were the easiest and least distracting).

The third thing that might help the flow of you reel is the break where you go from the fly-outs of your models into the girl on the steps (around 1:10), and then the break where you go from the girl into you full motion stuff (around 1:18). I think if these transitions were moved around you could get a lot more power out of your reel. I think if you move the section with the girl and the guy on the balcony inside of the fly-out break and then go from the fly-out right into the motion section you will hit a more natural break.

Again, your animations and models are really jaw dropping, I don't think I could make even one of those models if I were to work for 3 years so a serious :applause: from me.


**I'm not sure I explained the rearrangement very well, Battle Star isn't on tonight so maybe I'll take a crack at showing you what I mean.

09 September 2005, 05:38 PM
Awesome work as always Dimitri! You mentioned you were moving from Greece. Where you going. If you come to Chicago, I'd love to help you out file mou.

09 September 2005, 05:42 PM
wouldnt it be nice for you to post some images of what to expect on the reel. 30 minutes for the download is a long time to wait and not know what to expect. Alas ..I wont be using bandwidth on this. & Honestly the image you posted doesnt have much appeal!

09 September 2005, 05:54 PM
mmm some nostalgic moments of past challenges in there.. :)
congratulations on finishing up your reel, excellent works mate..!!!

09 September 2005, 06:04 PM
awesome work
good skills

09 September 2005, 06:07 PM
hi Dimitris !

really nice work !!

Don't forget to post your demo on ( :)

09 September 2005, 06:12 PM
hey dimitris...nice jobs......although some of em seems familiar to me....hehehe.....
good job:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 06:55 PM
Hi Dimitris,

I have seen some of your models but I am impressed anyway. So much quality in your modelling skills. :)

Gotta love the post production sequences too. Quicktime crashed at the end and I won't read the reel anymore... Will watch it tomorrow.

Good jobs dimi! I was gonna say "malaka" but I won't after all. :D

09 September 2005, 07:15 PM
nice one dimi

09 September 2005, 07:29 PM
Suburb Dude... :buttrock:

09 September 2005, 07:43 PM
Awesome Dimitri!:bounce:
Excellent clip tight and flowing.
I like the rhythm, the cuts the music and most of all your modeling.

Some humble suggestions:
Would it be better to start with the production work and end with the personal and challenges modeling?
Also, as mentioned already, a wireframe to shaded to textured view pan as the model rotate.
As for the output file, have you tried to encode a mp4 or wmv that would give substantially smaller sizes?
:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :applause:

09 September 2005, 07:52 PM
Amazing Job my friend...ill never get tired of looking your xtreme detailed models...congrats for your demo...and goodluck!:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:...five stars man..u deserve this!

:bounce: Dimitris

09 September 2005, 09:14 PM
Damn fine job on your reel Dimi. It's an excellent reflection of your personality as well as a showcase for your skills. I agree that it could be separated into different reels, but for someone who's familiar with your work here on CGTalk for so many years ... it's a beautiful compilation of work as-is.

Congrats on the front page, I hope your servers hold up to the massive downloads.

The dancing elephant steals the show. Love it! :love: :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 09:53 PM
Nice reel, Dimitris :) I thought that there were some areas that weren't as good as others, but they were all amongst the commercial work, and having worked in that sector myself I know how you sometimes have to cater to the tastes of the client, who doesn't always make the best creative decisions :p

Since the first half of the reel seems to be purely for showing off modelling, you should show some wireframes. The Quicktime crashed at the end, so I couldn't finish watching it.

I seem to recall you mentioning recently that you were looking to move abroad for work - I hope this reel helps you to find some new work, and give you the opportunity to move.

09 September 2005, 10:09 PM
Amazing work my friend. It really reflects your personallity (which i had the pleasury of experiencing when we met in greece) and creativity. Well deserved front page plug. I agree with the others about make separate reels for modelling animation and post as well as a texturing overlay on your modells to display everything you made . :thumbsup::thumbsup::scream::bounce:


09 September 2005, 10:12 PM
:thumbsup: Fantasticcccccc Workzzzzzzzzz:thumbsup:
The Film industry is waiting for you



09 September 2005, 10:42 PM
hey Dimitri,

polu kalh doul...errr very nice work! Funny I recognised some TV adds in there. Keep it up..I would definately do 2 reels and as mentioned before, some wireframe would'nt hurt.


09 September 2005, 11:04 PM
I've always liked your work very much when you would post it in the forums. You have some really good stuff on your reel! My only two crits are:

1) As was said already --Like to see some wireframes.

2) I wish you also had a larger size movie for us high-speed users. The picture is so small that all your nice detail on the models is really hard to appreciate.

Still, glad you put up your reel for everyone to see. :buttrock:

Velk ...thx man...sound at the end maybe corrupted in the dowload...but i will look to it..and also the other stuff u mentioned. Titles are hard to read 'cuase of the compression....will see what i can do for that. Also it has been mentioned from many to split the reel in to two files...Modeling and Post ....i think i will 'cuase it really will also give me space to add more stuff and remove some stuff that are not so good in Post section.

spirogyro ...txh man. I am going to send DVD of reel to Usa, England, Holland, France , Germany , New Zealand and Australia. If the road is heading to Chicago i will surely pm you!

As for the job hunt...thx ..i hope this reel will help...The post office is going to have a lot of work with me from next week. Heyy...i have in the address of CafeFX too in my mail list...wahhaaaa.....this is something that it would be tottaly NUTS....hahahah...thabnk lady...take care!
