Tear me a new animation reel


Hey Guys and Gals.
So I am about to finish school, and I am trying to build my reel. I would like to know how you feel about what I have going on here so far. Is this strong enough for an entry level animator position?
Thank you for your time,

Hmmm I’d play with the timing on all of your stuff. The walking looks very awkward, and a lot of the pieces with that stringy guy (from the first shot) are jumpy. The clip with him at 40sec… I’m not really sure what’s going on. Fighting? Try to make it more clear, and more fluid, because he pops a lot. I think the cavemen parts are the best, but those could use improvement as well. The porsche is clean, but if you’re going for an animator position, that doesn’t need to be there. Anyway, sorry to be so harsh, but you’ve got a ways to go. Keep it up! Good luck :smiley:


Hey Sam,
Please don’t apologize, you werent harsh at all.
I won’t get anywhere if I dont understand where my mistakes are. Thank you for your honest feedback.
