no-one is commenting because your host is incredibly slow. I have a 6mps line here and I`m getting 4.7kbps download -- 6 hours for your file !! ;)

your reel sounds interssting so i would suggest trying to host it elsewhere.

well after that long wait for it to download, I finally got to see the reel. You have some really nice stuff on there but my main problem with your reel is that it's all over the place. I would suggest concentrating on one aspect of 3D and focusing on that. Most employers don't want a "Jack of all Trades" type of person, they want someone who excels in one or two aspects, whether it be modeling, animation, dynamics etc. One suggestion would be to make different reels for different skills, e.g. a modeling reel, animation reel etc. Of it you don't want to do that, then section your reel so you show all the modeling in one section then move onto animation and so on.

I liked that part with the short guy and the motorcycle but I think it was a little too long. Also when he gets on the bike, his weight should push down on the bikes suspension and then come back up but that doesn't happen and that takes away from the realism.
