Some AE, some Maya so I suppose that makes me your basic all-around animator.

Good montage...decent music...good stuff.

But I'd be careful with that company name...it is a HUGE post facility in LA, NY and London.

Nice intro I like it until you put 'Things to come' it did not flow with the rest of the intro if you ask me(the way you treat it no spotlight like the other). Also use some sound efx for the rocket and laser gun it will help a ton. Nice pacing and the work looks good. It appears that you have the same problem I have, good work but not enough of it. When you repeat some of the clips it takes away from it. The logo animation that for...damn I can't remember the name... it is a rounded blue square anyway the animation is good but when you go back to it the name just slides up to reveal something. The second time it looks out of place.

Good work just my 2cents

i wouldn't call them a 'huge post house', but more a top creative offline editorial shop for spots and music vids. they farm out and finish their spot work at huge post houses (facilities) generally. either way though, change the name.

I like the pace and mortal combat music, makes it very different. The lux stuff was cool. yes you don't have a ton of stuff, but it works. You could do something different with the "things to come", I don't think it has real context in the piece. Maybe put your logo behind it, or intagrate it into "your look" (do you have a look?) I would like to have seen a "wrapper" around your work. Start logo - End logo. Also I know you already own your web address for lost planet, but how 'bout "the last planet" or "spacial movement". Just some thoughts.

P.S. nice stuff

Thanks for the feedback everybody. Several good points, well taken.

When I researched domain names two years ago, Fox had already taken "thelostplanet" (apparently for a movie?) and "lostplanet" resolved to someone's Quake clan and server as far as I could tell, so I ended up with the hyphenate. I hadn't heard of the post house, but I'll look into changing the branding along with the intro/outro.

Thanks for the suggestions Graham and Vinnie. The idea behind "things to come" was a bit of a play on the narration in the Mortal Kombat track and a reference to the retro sci-fi elements along with the classic H.G. Wells novel and 1936 movie:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0028358/

Looks like I need to clean that up a bit to bring it home. I suppose I'm still developing a "look" per se, since I seem to have a wide variety of interests...but then, specialization is for insects.

=)

Thanks again,
-R.
