I am sharing my updated demo reel as a motion designer. All comments are not only welcome but highly encouraged and appreciated. I hope we can build some projects together in the future. Have a very creative 2019!
Great work and looks like you have had a lot of fun projects to work on. Here are my thoughts. I would shorten it to a minute. For example, after 3 samples of character animation, I got it and didn't need to see more. Also, I'm not sure why you broke the reel into segments. I didn't really see a difference between character animation and motion graphics. And some of the VFX felt out of place such as the ocean shot at the end. I think the VFX where you placed motion graphics on live-action footage would blend into a motion graphics demo reel just fine. Just my two cents, keep up the good work.
Thanks for taking your time to give me your opinion. I do agree with your points. It has been hard as a post producer to try to wrap my work into a single category. I would also like to sell myself as an editor and color grader, but that is too far from motion, I don´t want it to feel like a random mixture of works. I have the same problem with my website. Still working on how to categorize my work. Your comments are very welcomed. Nice Vimeo site.
I just followed you, would love to work with Savy Productions at some point. You also keep up the good work 😃
PS. The final shot is very subtle but it is on VFX because I added and tracked an alien planet on the sky. I was wondering if it would get lost due to the rythm of the demo.
I would build a separate reel for Editing and color correction. For the editing reel don't make it a montage like your motion graphics reel. I would let the scene play out so we can get a really good feel for your editing style and how you would treat a scene. If you build a color correction reel I would make it like a montage like the motion graphics reel.
Thanks for the kind words about Savvy Productions work. Isn't it great that we get paid money to do this type of work? Best of luck with 2019.
