Animation Show Reel Talk
|show reel images|
My new show reel is out! Hurrah! This reel was a lot of fun to compile. I was involved in a few projects that turned out looking great and was a lot of fun to work on. I especially love all the projects I worked on with 21-19, the commercials and animated videos. There were challenging but the end results were awesome. I had a few projects I worked on at Studio Moshi that I truly enjoyed as well, though it made me want to tear my hair out half the time.I last updated my show reel in 2015. I have been updating every 5 years or so since becoming established in the industry.
- I've been busy working and normally only update my reel once I have a break or in need of work. I am currently on break and decided that my current reel just did not represent me properly anymore, so I edited a new one.
- Even if I have worked on new jobs, am not allowed to out those in my reel until it's out in public, so released on TV, the internet or permission from the client is obtained..
- I tend to leave a gap between reel updates because I am waiting for projects to be released so that I could put them in my reel and hopefully I would have worked on multiple projects while waiting, so that the next update has a lot of variety.
Some of the most common mistakes in a beginner reel are:
- Too Long.
- Repetitive use of the same project footage.
- Show your best work, not every work.
- READ YOUR CONTRACT: not all work is allowed on your reel
- Show the basics.
- Don't use copyright Music.
