Thread: New demo reel

  1. #1

    New demo reel

    I haven't produced a demo reel in awhile but just got a copy of CS4 production premium and wanted to do a project in After Effects/Premiere so I decided to do one.

    Although I'm posting this here, it admittedly has very little 3D work in it but this is the place I frequent the most so I figured I'd post it up here. Although sparse, all of the 3d work in the reel was done in Lightwave.

    At my job I do work exclusively for corporate clients, primarily presentations but also some video work, some web design work and some print work so those are the things I forcused on in the reel.

    Anyhow, let me know what you think.

    Very nice. The design is very sharp, almost like a moving fashion magazine.

    I've been struggling to get print illustrations to fit in a reel of animations, your reel has inspired me to spend a bit more time on those areas...without ripping you off

    Agreed with all the above - very elegant, and the music is perfect.

    Wow, thanks for all the kind words everyone. I didn't think I'd get many comments due to there being so little 3d work in it.

    biliousfrog, in terms of the way things are presented, I very much took inspiration from some other reels I've seen. As long as the style is different and the work itself (obviously) is different, I don't think anyone would ever accuse you of ripping anyone off. So please, use a similar presentation model if you'd like. BTW, if you haven't seen my comment in your thread, I love the editing in your reel.

    Solid work but the URL at the tail for the shot breakdown is broke.
    Better yet, your web page should auto-refresh at the end of the video with a link to the breakdown ... or it should be onscreen while the video is playing.

    Great work tho!

    Awesome stuff. What do you use as a source of music for your reel?

  12. #12
    I used the site: http://www.stockmusic.net/

    The song I chose was $30. I don't purchase stock music ever so I don't know if this is cheap or expensive but it seemed reasonable to me.

    Thanks again for the kind words everyone. I guess my next step is to learn flash and get a site up.

    Sweet, Thanks man. That's actually cheaper than several places that I've been looking. Great choice of music for your reel.

    Actually I would suggest against having a link to a shot breakdown. You don't see any studio's (even one-man studios) doing it. To prospective clients, it's not "need to know info"...to a prospective employer, that's where e-mail attachments come in or a breakdown sheet supplied when sending your reel.

    Good advice, once I get my site up, I'll probaby replace that bit with the url to my contact page.

    Thanks
