View Full Version : My reel

any constructive crit welcome...I am a compositor in the main but with utility 3d skills....all the 3d (except the particles on the ford shots) on this reel was done by me, as was obviously the comping. My main comping tool is Flame and 3dsMax for 3d.

main reel (10mb)

Nothing to crit really. A profesional reel. character removal, colour correction, motion tracking-your reel showcased it all and flawlessly. The athletes in the snowstorm was most impressive. The numbers on their jersies and their hair moved with them perfectly. Excellent work. How many years experience in the biz, if you don't mind me asking?

Hi Corey

Thanks for the kind comments...i've been doing flame for two and a half years, 3dsmax for about 6 years.

I just need as much feedback as poss as all my work is broadcast and I'm finding it tricky to break into film, which is where I want to be. If anyone has some ideas on what I could improve in order to land that first film gig, it would help me out big time.

yeah I was pissed off when i got the rushes of those maori guys with no tracker markers, just blank shirts and (black ones too)! Funny thing though, I had to do it on a few shots, and every time someone popped into the session and asked to take a look, they would point out the flaws in the numbers, and everytime they would be pointing out numbers which were real!!! So maybe i've done a bad job in locking them in too tight!

Hey Carlos! nice to hear from ya!

thanks for the positivity...yeah the problem is that the opener is the best thing on it! actually I used stop frame animation to shoot it, it took about two hours to make in total !!! I had a lot of fun with it.

So dude, how are ya...I wish you were still working on the ford job with me...actually there may be a chance if you are available. I'll email you now as this is going of topic...
