In this totally awesome demoreel, Dono shows off the power of Blender and his amazing CG skills.
I am very proud to present you my demoreel 2011.
I sent it to ILM and Pixar, I hope I will have some answers and I have a job...
Indeed: they must be MAD not to hire him!
Great one , LOL
LOL! Really funny. It's a nice parody of some modern trailers and demo reels. Some people think that by putting epic music and making fast cuts in the edit, it looks more professional...
I live and work in Hollywood.
Based on that demo, I'd hire you right now!...as a comedy writer.
i mean, perfec, no other words
Hahaha, this is very good.
Do you need some new features? :D:D:D
made me smile
I want to hire him now !
You should see his work with toilet paper, it's really impressive!
hi hi that's really funny :D
The job is yours!!!!! We'll call you right now!!!!
Request tutorial about hi-poly modeling...
Amazing reel lol
Very nice. Thanks. Creativity is one thing you cant learn.
That was great! I would hire you now if I were them!!!!
I had tears on my eyes, this is way funny!
Timing is pefect!
Nice! Great skillz..... Tutorial please.:)
Ha ha ha This is very cool. It took me almost half of video to realize of this Joke !
The intro and subtitles though, look very good indeed !
looks like demoscene :)
Nice DemoReel, however you should avoid Copyrighted Material, you could end up in Jail !
I can do better than that. I can model a monkey head! :-)
This video made my day.
Truly outstanding CG talent!
How did you make that cube look so lifelike?
It's almost like I'm looking at a real cube.
Truly amazing! I Laughed so hard when I saw the "low poly model 6 faces" part, then it just got better and better.
Some how I think this actually could get you a job, these days there are tons of great artists it's hard to find one that stands out. And you sir certainly do.
We need Tutorials on this!!!
Ha ha ha! That was great!
Looks like done in 3DMagix and IllusionMage ... Hope you paid the software!!!
For sure one of the most awesome reels I'ver ever seen...
I mean it.
Actually, the text in the titles and everything is kinda cheesy, and the animation is rough.
The modeling is ok, but needs improvement (the cube is not subdivided enough to apply good-looking displacement mapping to it).
But the lighting, and especially the scene setup... Brilliant! Wonderful, and inspiring!
the job is yours,
if not, I will hire you man!
Excellent !!! :D
I like the bold titles trying to look impressive, they're so cheap, and the epic music, and the "1D artist" .... and ... haha!!
Wow. Just too awesome for words. I tell all my students to strive for this kind of perfection.
Thank you for the humorous post and making my day. Good luck with the job search. ;)
Hahahahaha you're a genius! On a side note, I was reading about IllusionMage and 3DMagix... I think they should use this as their demo reel... hehehe
Not what I was expecting ...
I was not impressed by the artist's skills but the cuts and the visual and audio combo was superb.
Don't know if it was meant as a parody but it was utterly cool.
We are not so far from what BlenderGuru is doing.
Amazing - the super-long single-compositing chain was the best! I kept thinking "Oh, now here's the end, oh now wait, it keeps going!"
that's just the funniest thing I've seen in ages. Merely thinking about that compositor noodle is painful. a masterclass of epic! xD
Can you tell me how you got the animation SOOO SMOOOOTH? I mean I never thought there was any bones attached. You are my CG MASTER *(>0<)v
You need to publish tutorials sometime!
I adore you!
wow that super high poly cube was sooooo awesome. You can get a job wherever you want, I bet producers will start calling you day and night now.
Nice work for a parody XD
I loved that 1mile long compositor node XDDDDDDD
That was pretty funny =D
Blender Pro theme...
the texturing and animation looks so realistic :P
That's some real talent there.
First time I visited, the embedded video player was giving me only a black screen, which made it even better.
The intro title was kind of cheesy, but the rest is the stuff that legends are made from. 5 stars!
Can I get a copy please ???
Superb... I think All done in blender, We are so proud of you Blender boy!!!
The Blender community is demanding a Tutorial..The high poly cube was mind-blowing..
did you UV unwrap the cube? I think I almost peed myself at the composite MASTER node!!
HAHAHAHA... Speechless for your demo reel.
Did you use a normal map for the low poly cube?
Because it matched the detail of the hi poly perfectly!
XD funny thing is, I've actually seen reels that have less and are actually meant to be taken seriously XD.
LOL! the best demo reel i've ever see...
Hope you find a job on ILM or Pixar, congratz mate... :D
Wow! that is freaking awesome you must be god of CG truly 1D/2D/3D/4D/5D
y u avoid 7D,8D,9D,10D................etc....
................try next time...................EEEEEE
You need to be art director of Pixar !!!!!!!!
As soon as I heard the music, I was like "blech, not another one!" Of course now I feel like a kindred spirit to the creator of this. Great job!
You just need to improve on the intro and the music next time, otherwise I've never seen any demo reel that matches yours. You make it all look so easy. I'd appreciate a comprehensive video tutorial on the low poly modeling though.
I am his career manager. At this moment Pixar and Dreamworks are in a bidding war to get Dono. More news to follow.
that ROCkS!!!!!!!1d2d3d4d5d all bases covered
hahaha great one :-D
Lee Unkrich (director of Toy Story 3) tweet it !!!!! Win !!
@miaou: Yay, he DID get noticed. Awsome.
Love the demo. Good laugh at breakfast
I like your highpoly and composite part. Very funny.
Catherine Hicks, Animator at Pixar tweet it as well
"We need to hire this guy, stat. http://vimeo.com/19368587
about 8 hours ago via web"
Grats for even being noticed by Pixar folks!
Brilliant reel btw! Couldn't help laughing when I saw the rigging part! xD
I've used all the kind of brushes available in sculpt mode and still I can't get even close in making the high poly cube!...so...yes!...hats off to you!:-)
Which version of Blender did you use?
I watched this over and over for more than 5 times and I'm still deeply impressed by the beauty of the picture and the complexity of this reel. I can't believe this to be made by just one person. This is simply incredible good.
Picture and Music work brilliant together, and the fast cuts prove dono as an experienced xD-Artist. Especially his pioneer work on 4D and 5D will be a key reason for Pixar, Dreamworks or even Autodesk and Maya to hire him.
@TomsT He probably used Pixar's Renderman or Maya, maybe Illusionmage
There is more creativity behind this reel than meets the eye.
Great Work :D Sometimes less is more :D
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL :D :D :D :D
danpb He probably used Pixar’s Renderman or Maya
Unlike other commenters, I was not so impressed by this reel. It did give a good overview of the different stages in of a 3D project, but maybe the choice of model could have been a bit more ambitious. Also, the fluid simulation was a bit "jerky" but I do appreciate the effort that went into making it. More subtle lighting would have made all the difference. B+
I hope to become this good someday.
Some constructive crits from my side- frames at 00:20 and 00:52 don't look much photorealistic. Everything else is is just awesome! Initially I got confused and started thinking "how does this unedited video relate to Blender?"
Wow, I haven't seen anything as impressive as this one for ages!
my favorite! :D
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
If it works as reel, please let us know.
That, sir, was awesome! LOL
Novo is a victim of the Aperture Science Companion Cube syndrome :)
This really kept me laughing for 5 minutes straight! Thank you soooooo much!
FAKE RAGE !!!
This was totally done with 3d studio max.
The animations and simulations are to complex for a free software!!
BTW: Great Work
Ha ha! I can tell you are a quality artist because everything was rendered with anti-aliasing turned on!
hi hi, bit funny, isnt it ...
1 to 5D .... Awesome.
Ah, the Text Animation was terrible. ;)
Ahh not even 2.5D skills? :(
You should work for minecraft with your current skills!
They could use a talented artist like you.
You could even do CG work for them :D
Make an e-book or making of DVD.
HAAAAhAHAHAaaaaa, this rocks!
quite a cool demoreel indeed.
He forgot to model the Crazy Frog Motorcycle and put in this.... ops (no word sounds anymore)....:P
There was always something missing from the team making Sintel and until now I just couldn't put my finger on it.
Ton...you now know the whereabouts of your first and possibly last employee for the next Blender Project.
Like the 'A' Team, I love it when a plan comes together.
thanks for sharing
C'mon folks, it was just a cube.
OHMAIGOSH THIS GUY IS A PRO AUGHHHH I WANT HIS SKILLZ. IF I COULD ACCOMPLISH WHAT HE DID WITH THAT DEFAULT CUBE I WOULD BREAK THROUGH MY NEIGHBORS FENCE AND JUMP IN THEIR HALF FROZEN POOL OMGOMGOMGOMG ZOOOMMMGG
I'll hire you!
Hey! Did you use that top-of-the-line software 3D magix?
In all seriousness, that was better than most show reels I see.
Nice choice of music, great editing, overall very well executed. I'd hire you. As an editor.
Very funny Donno
@WAYLOW - nice try Armando, you have already stolen other peoples work, don't add identity theft to the list.
Jajajajaja so LOL, this demo reel really made me smile, jajaja, when I listen the music from the intro, I think, "this will be awesome" .... and .... i was no wrong, good luck ¡¡¡
This totally knocked me off of my rocker!
Please consider a how-to video!!
THE BEST demoreel I have seen yet in my entire life! Pixar and all the big studios should be drooling over this by now. I almost fell off my seat watching this. Totally incredible! Magnifico! Superb! Brilliant! Amazing! Genius! Funny???
This definitely made my day. Haha!
Wow. Who are your influences? What's your process?
You are a crazy boy, but i like it !
Good luke for ILM and Pixar !
The huge block letters are AWESOME. I hope Blenderguru.com makes a tutorial simulating your effects.
Haha! Awesome work! Definitely made my day! Thanks for the good laugh! :D
lolz, hugh poly cube wuz only subdiv with normal bake but plz make tutorial on rig. How u make it roll?
Hahahaha, by far the best parody! I honestly would hire you if I owned a company based off this alone. It's so tough these days to get any type of attention with all the A+ artists floating around.
Hope you get the job!
For something so goofy that was epic.. I was expecting dragons and sci-fi girls and spaceships...
You SO win! Great job! (I loved the low poly/hi poly modeling!)
If I was looking to hire someone, i would hire him!
And thats because i saw this one, thought that his other work could be fun also, and than saw was he created already! Nice way of taking someones attraction!
Thank you this definitely made my day :)
Impressive work! Although I do feel the animation of the cube is a little stiff, failing to properly capture the natural grace and beauty of solid geometry when seen in the wild. It's still a lot better than anything I've produced, my last attempt at animating a octahedron ended up looking like something slapped together during a coffee-break by what's-his-name and all those other armatures at Paxo.
Keep up the good work.
i guess everyone who is laughing is a virgin
That was hilarious.
The only limit as an artist is your own imagination.
Man, I just LOVE his compositing! It's so complex, yet gives subtle, wonderful effect. This reel truly shows how powerful Blender is!
Made me laugh! totally awesome!
Really funny ! The only problem is that it will be difficult to find something better for the first of april !o)
ILM !!! take that!!!!
I felt the "karma" coming from this magnificent work of artistry. But the karma was of entirely the wrong color. It should have been blue. Or mauve. Green?
But anyhow, I look forward to seeing "your name in lights." The next time we need pixels, or existential geometric shapes, we shall now know of their Sole Source.
Dono raises the bar again! lol
Thanks! I really needed a big laugh after this day! BEST DEMO REEL EVER!!
A body would need 2 life times to achieve what you have.
<= it's the true !
This is some of the most inspiring works I have ever ever seen. Brought tears to my eyes oh great guru! Could you please release a making of!!
blocky shit xD
