    Dude to be honest you don't need the animation mentor stuff on there the sintel stuff knocks spots off of it, I got chills from some of the Sintel stuff so If i was reviewing your reel Sintel would be enough. Excelllent work though

  2. Thanks for all the kind comments, everyone!
    Now to try to get a job with it...

    @McPandaBurger: thanks for saying so. The idea is to show a variety of styles, as well as some specific skills (ie lip sync).

    BTW, all but 3 of the scenes on this reel were animated in Blender. As comeinandburn pointed out, the second scene (my favourite) features Denny Lindberg's fantastic "Biff" rig.

    Great Demoreel, very smooth. You will get a job very soon. Glad that you cut-off the reel right before Sintel kills the Dragon, ha ha ha

  4. Nice animations, since sintel is the best looking one I suggest you put that first. You need to catch the attention of whoever is watching it. Look through a lot of reels at reelroulette ( and you'll start closing them if the beginning isn't engaging enough.

  5. Great work; though I noticed on the "Biff" rig that the neck protrudes through the collar at some of the more extreme head poses. Since it is an animation reel I don't think that it takes away from though.

  6. @Simon: I take your point, but disagree that Sintel is the best looking animation. Remember this is to showcase my character animation, it's not about nice lighting, rendering and such. The order of shots was based on suggestions by my last mentor, Sean Sexton - an animation supervisor from Dreamworks.
    A showreel should be made to appeal to recruiters, not for public consumption.
    The shots at the start might not be to your taste, but they show off some specific skills that recruiters are seeking.

    That's the theory, anyway.

  7. What is the song with violins playing at the back when Sintel is showing? Very beautiful! Please let us know!!! Please Please Please!
