Hey Oz,

I've gotta say, this is one of the nicest animation reels that's been in these forums in a while.

The only cringe-worthy moment was when the green box guy's arm goes through the box he's pushing. I'd seriously think about fixing that if I were you!

Otherwise, nice looking stuff! Good luck with the job hunt

thanks alot ivanisavich!

I've been to your site a while back, I must say I was very very impressed
with your animations, I think you are one of the best animators, I've seen here for a while!

I just' re-visited your site, the high-dive animation is EXCELLENT!

regarding the green man arm's penetrating, unfortunaly I lost the project,
and all I got is this render... (it was for an contest)
you can donwload the original wireframe I sent to the contest,
there's an animators joke in there, that is not shown in this render..

I think becuase it's kind of an animation test, it's not that of a problem if the arm penetrates
the cube a bit... maybe I am wrong... I dont want to take this animation out.. and I cant
fix it :(

Actually you are the fourth of fifth person remarking this problem..
maybe I'll loose it after all.... we'll see....

anyway thanks again!

Hey man....thanks for the compliments

But just to continue on that point...even if you have lost the file, I'd still suggest taking it out then. A potential employer wants to see a polished reel...and such an obvious bug could potentially turn them off. Now....since the rest of your reel is quite nice that might be doubtful, but you don't want to take that chance!

nice work, i really enjoyed that!
The arm issue didnt bother me that much because the weight was still definately there and the animation was working. Maybe you could just censor it ? hehe jk

keeping that box push animation only hurts your reel doesnt help it in any way.

very nice

I think you could land a job anywhere with this reel
And the green Arm glitch you could do without. The other material is superb imo

Thumbs up

Very good reel CoolCalb, Loved it!

I think it has a good flow, I wasnt bored for one second.
I recognized alot of the things from other forums you posted and conferences they were played at, liked them then and liked them now even more combined together and with cool sound.
The car shot was awesome.

I do think there were some pieces you could easily give up like the naked fat man and the guy interacting with the ball. design wise and animation wise they were weaker than the rest of the good stuff you have there.
I dont agree with what was beeing said here, I think the green man shows really good animation abilities.

Good stuff man!
Apply to the big ones !

Amazing work Oz!

I agree with the others concerning the arm shot, I would take it out. If your reel was comprised merely of rough playblasts then I would say leave it in, because it does show good weight, however since most of the rest of your reel is so polished, it stands out in a negative way. Besides, you have so much great stuff on there you can stand to cut some out. You only want to show your best work, never leave anything in that will cause the viewer to question the consistency of quality in your work.

By the way, that car shot was superb, best animated car I think I've seen. Great job!

Very nice, and much better with that new soundtrack ( I remember your reel on xsibase with that old annoying music )
Don't tell me what I can't do!
  07 July 2005
Fantastic stuff. I like the use of subtitles, it helps pull everything together. Great job.
