Hi guys! This marks as my 1st post in this forum.
This is just a collection of works I've done before
some years ago.

I liked it alot anthony... Tho the music gives me a headache ... :)

One thing that was not clear - did you do everything, ie modelling, rigging, animating, rendering?

A few of the clips were worse than the others, and I would toss, such as the blue guy with the sink ...

Hi archijam!
Thanks for your kind comments. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Now I started to understand some of the problems of my reel clip.
Actually, I did mainly character animation (+ some lip syn).
Looks like I didn't clearly emphasize this throughout the whole reel.
(And the subtitles were too small and distorted in Youtube version)

Anyway, I think I will take off that blue guy part. Any more not-so-good
part you recommend to drop?

Keep the blue guy just make the text larger. I liked the cubes part and the fishies best.

I would drop the second vehicle scene (where the Hummers slide into view) and the blue guy scene (which doesn't do justice to your other shots, especially the fish and bird shots).

Also, the very first scene isn't your best, and it didn't make a good first impression. I think it's fine for later on in your reel but I think that the establishing shot should be the fish or bird scene.

Good work though!

Hi piF! I'm glad you like those two scenes. They are one of my favourite
animations I ever did. Thanks for your advice too but I think I decided
to remove the blue guy part as the animation wasn't great and only
showed that I could do some modelling works.
(The water drinker and filter props were modelled by me)

To make the reel more devoted to animation, I should take this off.

Hi inigo07! Thanks for your suggestion. I wasn't able to locate a better
rendering clip for the Hummers one. It should be my next clip to be deleted.

And also thanks for pointing the very first scene issue. I had some troubles
to decide which clip to do first. I will rearrange the clips again to see how
it goes.

OK... manage to re-edit the reel. Here are two different versions:
Version 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFT8SBxFo4Q)
Version 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVkvvq-fRWE)

The major difference in the version is just the order of clip.
I've muted the reel BGM and turned on some the clip's original
soundtracks. Which one appearing better?

Got some feedback. Another update:
