That was cool stuff! You had a lot of great work in there. The stuff with the wolves is definitely my favorite - and I loved seeing those breakdowns. My one crit, as far as reels go, I wouldn't use that music. You might limit yourself because if someone comes across your reel who could get offended by some of that, they might just move on to the next one. Hopefully most people wouldn't, but there's always some people that would and if that person is watching your reel, you might lose a potential job opportunity. Cool work though :)

I agree.. killer reel and the breakdowns were really well done. I also think the music choice might be offensive to some, although most people would probably just kill it and watch the reel silently anyways. So even though i dig the track, I would recommend putting something on there a little less abrasive. Again, well done and the werewolves were great.

I agree with Jack, your work is really good. But I think the music is too distracting. The beat is cool, but the lyrics might hurt you when a employer views it. My recommendation would be something more of a trance beat, with no lyrics.

As for the work in detail, I don't see anything wrong. Showing the composite breakdown is always good. Nice work!

Good breakdown on the wolves.

Hi all,
Thank all for your comments.
I am french and i just realize the traduction of the music...:blush:

So, i changed the music, cut more plans (for more speed) =).

Please see the news version of the demo reel and say me if what do you think :thumbsup:

Thank, Damien.
