Please Give Feedback on My First Demo Reel
on Apr 17, 2009 at 8:41:31 am

I would appreciate any feedback you might have on my very first demo reel. It is done in After Effects with some small bits in 3DSMax and Particle Illusion. I'd love to get into junior compositor/vfx artist position.How would you rate my chances of landing a job with this demo reel? What should I improve?

Sorry for the Vimeo, I just started working on my own web page.

Thanks a lot! Any comments mean a lot to me :-)

Great work. I feel the demo reel starts out really strong and then loses it when we see the Star Trek stuff. The bar has been raised so high on that stuff it really needs to be amazing. So I would take out that section. On the Boat night scene lower the opacity even more on the light reflection of the boats in the water. I love the before and afters, that's good stuff. I would try to shorten a lot of the clips, for example, the boat shot felt long. I thought it was cool once I saw it and didn't need to see what felt like the whole shot. But what do I know. All in All, very cool. Keep up the good work and best of luck in the job search.

By the way, don't give up. The economy isn't the best...but if you keep at it you'll get where you want to be. Best of luck.

The beginning is too slow. I almost didn't bother continuing but the quality looked okay so I waited. The explosion on the space ship looks terrible. The scene with that boat looks awesome. A lot of the text you put up there wasn't really time to read it nor was what it said relevant I believe, but it made me try to see if you were saying something. I'd try to use less of that.

Looks like you've got some good stuff going on though.
Good luck.
