Animation Demo Reel (Fast Action/Robots/Acrobatics)

Heres the Reel i graduated with at the start of Sept. I had an animation job lined up out of school, so updating my site with it kinda took a back seat, but got some time, so enjoy the reel and a fully revamped site.

>>EDIT<< Due to excedded bandwidth, Wade over at www.conceptcan.com, is currently hosting my reel. Thanks Wade

Download Zip (9mb):

>>EDIT 2<< Due to the large response of the models and Rigs on my reel, i have freed up a few of them and made them available for download off my site. Enjoy.

>>End of Edit 2<<


Crits and comments always welcome, check out the homepage of my site to see the clips that will help replace these for demo reel 2005. Thanks again, Enjoy.

Really nice stuff. I love the people jumping and fliping around. Nice lip sync too. Everything is awesome. Keep up the good work.

thanks for the feedback, glad you guys liked them. Hopefully the next time around i can get some more characters interacting (more fun and complicated in mybook).


Thanks again.

Very nice. The models were very impressive, thank those guys one more time . All the motion was very impressive too, with the possible exception of the acting bit. And the really floaty animation of the tall, thin guy who stops walking, turns, and shoots. All the acrobatic and robotic motion is real tight though, in some cases, downright jaw-dropping.

Nothing but complements from me. The movement of your characters is smooth. You pay attention to the small details, which makes the characters seem real. My favorite clip is the first scene with the mech. Did you use endomorphs for joint control for any of your characters?

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Due to traffic I am close to running out of bandwidth, so a friend of mine Wade Ammon is taking up hosting for a while. Thanks for all the interest.


Onelung - Thanks, Chris says its floaty and the binds suck, gald you second it.

ct4real - nope just straight up hand keys, nothing really special there.

henningk - trust me my modelers and setup get major props.

Nice smooth dynamic movement, loved every millisecond. And to does who rigged the skeletons on those models, Wow!! I know simple adjective, (but I can't spell the others) but it says it all.
