Hi guys )!

finished my reel :banghead:

what is wrong with it ?

Okay, here´s my feedback:

1.No title
2.strange turntables at the beginning (just rotate them on 1 axis, not on 2)
3.In the middle, stills change far too fast.
4. Why´d you put your best stuff (Camera tracking, advertising jobs etc) at the back, I almost broke off watching after your model turntables

IMO set your reel in a new order:

1.High end comp and motion stuff (The running girl, car shading) as a first
2.High end stills in the middle, but keep them a bit longer
3.Low end comp stuff (train ride) and model turntables at the end

Have fun and good luck

dunkelzahn, thanks a lot ! ill try to fix that in next version ) :banghead:
1 yep, my bad
2 its for showing model from more attractive point :eek: i thought
3 there is nothing to see more than few seconds)) except last still with oil :bowdown:
4 idea was to show more and more complicated things ... modeling first, then stills, then animation and at the end "high" stuff )

leigh, sorry about that (

you got to put as much variety at the begingin as possible, otherwise people think "meh modelling reel" and close it. you got to show everything you can do as quickly as possible and then show more detail. It's not like a movie where you will most likely sit through the whole thing coz you already paid for the tickets.
