Hurray, I've done another animation reel. Now I'm going to be doing that all important task of applying to companies. Feel free to pass around this animation reel. You know a guy who knows a guy? Send him the link. Any kind of promoting will be greatly appreciated.

I like the Pace of your reel, I think the music goes along quite well with it. The lip syncs are nice to watch too. Were those clips from the 10 second club?

For some reason Violent Femmes always seems to work well on my demo reels. Most of the animations were my submissions in the 10secondclub competition. I think it's a cool thing to compete in but it is damn hard to ever win.

Cool models you used, they seem pretty flexible and easy to animate and I think music always compliments a reel. But thats just me, oh and it totally depends on teh type of music used of course. No more rob zombie sheesh! Where did you get that last character model from, the running dude?

The tall guy was a character I made before I created the cell shaded guy. The tall guy just didn't work well for me, there were some issues with it. The fact that he was tall and his facial features were small caused problems if I ever wanted a full body shot. It was hard to read his facial expressions from so far away. Also, he had a big nose blocking the rest of his face. So I created a character that had proportions more like Mickey Mouse. I gave him big eyes, big mouth and got rid of the nose completely. I definitely want to create a new character in the future with all these fancy rigging tricks people have thought up. Maybe create some good squash and stretch set up.
