First Showreel. Would appreciate Feedback


So I finally got around to putting my first attempt on a showreel together. Would appreciate input on how I could improve it.

You need to decided what that reel is for, if its for rendering then emphasise the rendered stills, if its for animation then have lots of animations, if its for modelling then have lots of models and you might want to show the topology of the models.

Hope that helps.

First and foremost, you have to add some kind of music to it. It's pretty much standard and makes watching the whole thing a bit more tolerable.

I think you probably need to work a bit harder on texturing and lighting. Although the models look decent, the rendering and look are as simple as can be. The animation, modeling and texturing of the car flying through the city is medicore at best and I would personally not even include it with the reel. There are also inconsistencies with display of models. Some turntables are low-poly, some high. It's really insignificant, but does reflect on your attention to detail. Overall, the second part of your modeling reel looks decent.

Having said all that, if I made an attempt at it, it'd look 10 times worse. These are just my observations and I don't claim I could do a better job.
