I finally put out my very first showreel and it'd be great to get some feedback on it.
I think for me this was mainly an exercise to give a quick overview of the different things I can do. If work would come from this, I'd hope to be employed by a studio either doing narrative animation (2D or 3D) or something that has to do with data visualisation.
For more UI/UX animations I have a professional reel but it's password protected as some of the work is confidential.
Cool! That makes sense. Thanks Aaron!
Super helpful! Thank you so much Daniel! Really appreciate it.
Maybe move the strongest work (at least from my perspective that is the bits from 0:24-34) from the end to the beginning to grab our attention. Thanks for sharing your reel!
What type of work are you hoping to get from this? Would help give appropriate feedback.
Here's my opinion, hope it's helpful!
- I agree with Steve about the montage, there are clips in there that might be nice to see more of;
- 0:19: not sure this shot should be on the reel, it doesn't show much animation and the others are on a better level;
In terms of editing:
- the cut at around :08 breaks the flow because the second shot starts still and then moves; maybe cut at a different point? Maybe re-animate the second shot so that it's constantly moving?
- at second :11 there's a pulling up motion, maybe tie that with shot 0:14 that goes up in the beginning as well?
Aww! Thanks. My best friend actually did the music. She'll be so happy to hear that. :)
Yeah, no problem! I love the music you used. It really fits with your work.
Cool! Thank you very much for this feedback. I'll definitely keep it in mind for future showreels. Might even change it on this one… Thanks again!
I think the length is good and you show a good variety of work in there. I'm not sure about the sped up montage at around 30 seconds in. Those clips look good, but they go by way too fast and I want to see longer versions of them.
