View Full Version : My latest demo reel

09 September 2005, 01:08 PM
Hello. I wanted to post my latest lighting and texturing demo reel. There are a few clips that are in here for other things, animation and matchmoving, but mostly lighting and or texturing. Couldn't have done it without the help of the cg team at GTN or Digital Image. THanks!

That reel is really good. The only thing is that it is hard to know what is your work and what isn't. I would put a shot listing with that reel, on the bottom of each sequence. Because some of the cars in their enviroments look so realistic I don't know if you did the background or just the car, and the car is real in some shots like that jeep near the end. I was like, did he do the lettering, and is the car real? I had to keep guessing. Very nice work. Did you send them a seperate shot listing?

Hello. I did send a very very detailed shot list, something like 3 pages long. But, to make a long story short, I did do all lighting on all of the shots, except for the jeep eagle shot (that was only matchmoving, the rest was done in flame) and the first opening impala shot, I helped with the lighting and animation but others worked on lighting as well. I lit everything else , enviorments and cars, (except for the hand held video stuff,(no enviorments on that ). I also did 95% of the texturing, I didn't texture the Tires and wheels on the Michelin pieces, just the cars and the enviorments. Hope this helps,
