This is excellent. We're hired to tell stories dealing with a wide range of tone and mood. These stories have well thought out narrative arcs and meticulous pacing. But then, to show our skills and experience, we cram them together like the lightening fast montage of a body building contest. The most important essence of every piece is eliminated.
i kinda want to (and just might) make a sizzle reel, reel, whatever, that basically categorizes the shots i'm highlighting/ featuring into just like, demonstration of principles/ techniques. that's kinda what i'm selling to studios in some sense (as a freelance animator/ motion designer/ whatever). they prob just wanna know if i can do a certain breadth of work, as opposed to seeing shots that dazzle and overwhelm without much context.
but dope reels are still dope reels. i think coming across them sparked the curiosity to wanna even dip my toes into all of this.
heh... yeah, I also got tired of them, but... not entirely! :)
The site is actually pretty interesting.
