View Full Version : First Showreel

08 August 2010, 09:31 PM
Hi guys, this is my first demo reel that i have put together so far, i have just currently finished studying digital visual effects at Teesside University and is now looking to break into the Visual effects industry, either as a Runner or matchmove artist, at the moment i am not too sure on which area i want to specialise so my reel shows a range of skills

At the moment i am working on some new content for the reel which will include more shots with matchmoving involved.

Would like to get some feedback on the reel so far and ways forward to improve it before i finally send it out to the industry.

Just some other information, i have been using Softimage for the past 3 years at university and had a couple of years 3ds max experience before that, but as with most jobs in the visual effects industry Maya is usally required so the past few weeks i have been teaching myself maya and so far i am progressing quickly and hoping to be up to a good basic standard in a couple of weeks. The work i am producing at the moment i am using maya and to matchmove i am using boujou.

Not sure if any of this extra information helps but i thought id share it.

Looked pretty good to me.
Good you put the breakdowns in. The lighting in the second one was sucking a bit. Loads of hard work and it looked like a gray mass.

Anyhow well done.
