Creating my showreel

After researching and finally deciding what to actually put into my showreel, I got to work. As time went on it changed as I was creating more work that could be put into it, so there are multiple versions of my showreel:

Version 1:

Version 2, this time I added in some more dynamics work:

Version 3, I’ve added a Bifrost simulation and corrected the run cycle:

the latest version, another Bifrost simulation was added and the order changed:

I also had adjusted the Bus stop animation, trying to improve the movement of his leg while he’s sitting, the wireframe images were also changed: I managed to render out the lower poly wireframe. When smoothing my model (after hitting 3) I also pressed fn and the down arrow.

Showreel

Before creating my own showreel, I’ve done a little research to see how I should go about it, including tips and showreels from a few artists…

Some notes I took while reading the links below:

Adding tags to your showreel to show what you did/what it is. Mike Bain’s showreel is a good example of this as it contains shots from easily recognised films:

Gerard Dunleavy, won international CG student of the year 2012, his showreel is below:

I really enjoyed the showreel below by Leticia Reinaldo, focussing on modelling, lighting and texturing. The timing is what caught my attention, there is enough time to view the models yet they aren’t overstaying their welcome…

A rather dramatic showreel.. some dramatic camera movements:
