09 September 2006, 12:06 AM
Hi everybody!

Well, I found myself with some free time some days ago and decided to make my Demo Reel.

There you go!
DEMO REEL - CADINHO - AGO 2006 ( (aprox. 35Mb)

It mainly presents Character Animation and some random stuff like modelling, tracking and rotoscoping. Almost all of the work you can see there has been made for the company I work for, Seagullsfly Studios (
I hope you enjoy and I also would love to get some feedback on it.

I also would like to giva a big THANK YOU for my friend and co-worker Fabricio Moraes ( for hosting the file for me! :thumbsup:

Cheers!!! :beer:

Beautiful bro! I don't have to be a psychic to see that this is going to be on the frontpage :D

The only thing I'd say to take out for sure would be the little sun character (the rio logo).....that was pretty weak.....but the rest was great!!! crazy brazilians and your "Cee-gee" ; ;)

Nice variety man.

I liked the character animation pieces alot! to be honest? I think the reel is too long and I got abit bored as it went on...
I think that everything from the jumping letters animation and on could be cut out and the song should definitely be changed, it doesnt fit and even disturbs the cool stuff you are showing.
Well, thats only one man thought man, anyway, I like your stuff, I even remember seeing the santa stuff long time ago, maybe from your website (not sure)

Good luck bro,

Great. At last! Very good works

I agree about the music. It´s not so good for a demo. I guess...

Congratulations for your work.

Big boy!!!

Ranimate: Dude, thanks for the ccs!! I am considering about shortening it up a little bit... No doubt that more than 3 minutes is too much. Do you think I should get rid of breakdown´s part?

Ranimate and Marciowski: About the music, it is weird! Some people like it a lot and others simply hate it. Next time I will take Marciowski´s advice and try a Surf Music. What about BEACH BOYS Marcio? Does that sounds better for ya? :)

ivanisavich: Tyson, you are a forum freak!!! You must had read my thread before I even submitted it!!! :rolleyes:

Take out the sun character? Hum... you know... maybe its animation is not the best ever but I... well... I don´t know... I think I like the little fella! Can I keep it for a while? I promise I will take it out on the next one!! :thumbsup:

About the frontpage: I´D WOULD BE DELIGHTED!!! By the way, it has been a while since the last time you´ve been there... Like, 3-4 days? :)

Keep rocking! :bowdown:

wow.. great animations. seems you have a lot of things going on here..

i have to agree with you... keep the rio character, he's awesome! Very colorful and fun character that shows a lot of expression. It's good to show variations of animations styles and this is well done for the medium it's created for.
If I were to suggest any changes I would edit out the 3 veges/tin can clip. Your other animations are really strong compared to this one. Also, the music track you selected is distracting. Not a big deal considering this is an animation piece, but I ended up muting it to really focus on what i was seeing.

Super job here.. thanks for sharing :applause:

Great reel, my friend!

I agree about the music too, but the works are like we already know, superb! Congratulations!
You guys at Seagulls rocks a lot!

Ricardo, as i said before, solid reel it looks fantastic!

only crit that i have is that your final section where you list off Character animation etc, that could be better placed in the corners or somewhere during those bits. so to shorten the reel :)

otherwise, top stuff, best of luck

You did a nice job in this Demo Reel. I have no critics, you`ve already took away the "Glup Glup" :)

Sorry about my english!:thumbsup:

Parabéns, cara!

First of all I'd like to thank all the people that downloaded the reel.
Well, I decided to try the sugestions people gave me here and here we go, the second version of my demo!


So, basically I shortened it up and changed the music.

Was that better?! :)

I changed the LINK from the first post, so to keep it going, I'll keep the original file here:

Much better!
Franz Ferdinand! great choice!
I think now it's better without that breakdown.

5 stars!

09 September 2006, 07:05 PM
hey Ricardo... great updates. The audio track has a nice progressive feel too. I really like how you added credits to each project on the bottom of the screen.
2 thumbs up again :thumbsup:

Senna was a master, the best pilot ever! This work is really fantastic for a F1 fan like me. Great modeling, great sound engine for each one of the cars, great senna reactions shaking in the circuit... everything is very very nice. Congratulations SeagullsFly team! Another perfect work!

03 March 2007, 07:29 PM
This is great stuff Cadinho! In your other thread, I told you how much I loved the F1 work. Well, your character stuff is just as impressive.

Keep up the good work!:bounce:

Groove on!


PS> In your demo, I noticed this character, I remember seeing him few years back in an animated music video. I guess the video was called 'Frejat', where this guy wants to go to the moon.... loved the music, concept & animation on that.
Did you or your studio work on that piece too?

03 March 2007, 11:55 AM
Alexandro Castro: Thanks for the reply! I don´t know what happened but it seems like your post is in the wrong thread... I don´t know how that happened but I am sure you replied to my Senna Experience Thread (, didn´t you? :)

Sushanimator: Yes! His name is Frejat and he is a famous singer here in Brazil. This one I have in my demo is from his second CG videoclip, called "Tunel do Tempo".
The first one, "Segredos", have been produced by Consequencia ( (who also worked on the second, with us) and can be found on their website (Portfolio -> Portfolio -> Segredos -> Video). Leo Santos ( and Marcio Bukowski ( also worked on that masterpiece too. I LOVE that video too! :bounce:
