My Visual Effects Reel - James McPhail



Hello everyone,

I have finally finished my visual effects reel after a really great year at VFS. I really had a blast working on it and learned alot.

Thanks to everyone in 3D62 for making the year as fun as it was. I will never look at guitar hero the same way again

Any comments you have are very much appreciated

Cheers,

James

@ Pixology2 - Cheers, The spider bit at the end is one of the assignments you do in the VFX course at VFS. Its a lot of fun and everyone interprets it differently. To me it had to be lightning to the brain

@ Trident19 - Thanks Samer you really need to get your reel online soon

@ Buscard - Cheers Cliff. We certainly can never have enough debris smashing buildings Lets see your reel online too :P

Wish you the best in the future

Hey james, nice to see your stuff on CGtalk man.. After all that work, you must be enjoying this break haha.. just keep working like a biotch, become stubbornly persistant, and see everything in a optimistic ignorant way, and youll enter the world of success. Good luck man wish you the best!
