My name is Rylan Mattes I live in Vancouver B.C. I recently finished my animation/cg training at Think Tank Training Centre ( ( , the website has not been updated in a while. I was very impressed by the school, and highly recommend it to anyone thinking about getting into cg. This is my animaition demo reel that was just finished.


Looking for work in Vancouver.

Very entertaining reel man! Loved the way you handled the necessary weight-lifting part with the dead body in the locker. Very original!

hey there,

smashing the head in the locker was way funny :applause: And the rest of your reel was really great, no complaints here. I really like the use of sound fx to your scenes, very subtle but adds a nice touch to the finish.

Nice work Rylan, you pulled it off with time to spare! I agree with all the locker room crits.

good luck with the job offers.

where did you get the music for the reel?

I liked them, and as the other said, the locker piece was really good. I liked the subtle piece with the girl at the end as well.
Keep it up and good luck on the job hunt.
