    First Showreel!

    Hello. I thought id post my showreel up here for criticism since it is a design corner
    Well not so much critism, as im not changing it, but what it may need more/less of, so
    that if it takes longer to get a job, I can work on new bits for it and add them.

    I graduated from my graphic design degree last year and want this showreel to get me a full time job in video editing (preferably) or motion graphics.

    What do you think -

    That looks fantastic! I'm not too experienced in video editing (actually, I've got no clue :lol), but that does look professional. Although some of the 3D and some animations look a little stiff, I'm sure some more polish would make it lots better!

    Great job man. Let us know when you land a job at video editing.

    Thanks Thorzilla!

    I agree with the 3d comment. I am new to 3d, only been using Cinema 4d for just over a year now. I have mainly used primitive shapes to model and get by, but im trying to push it and learn to model and animate more complex shapes and objects! Time and practice, time and practice

    I shall indeed let you know, il be very happy if I do get one!

    Cool blue sparks in your sig by the way!

    For me the frame rate of the video was quiet low but the rest was great however still not perfect.

    That was pretty cool, nice. I would suggest only focusing on your strength for your reel. Its cool that you have some 3d stuff in there, but if you think its not good then leave it out. I like the fact that its a minute long lol, I also like the graphic designs you got going on. Maybe add some color on the water on the slow motion shot?

    Do you have some roto skills?..There's always positions open for that. When making a reel, ask yourself what type of job am I applying for?, unless you're looking for a generalist position. Overall It's good.

    I really love the berries falling, lol holy $#@! 15hrs to render?. Seeing how you used C4D I can't quite help you, but I'm sure you can find some rendering tutorials on the web to get them settings lower and the time.

    Did you use AE?
