  1. Yeah, this has been around for a while. I still don't really know how its done. I'd guess its rich in actionscripting...
  2. Some of the stuff seems a little tutorial-like. The 3-d stuff is good.

    My Reel

    Excellent use of timing and edits to the music track.
  5. I enjoy the simplicity and the personality of your reel. Chill work.
  6. Though, not one particularly a fan of the "internet sensation" of calling it, this time I must: FAIL.

    1st Reel

    Any strong reaction to the music is a good reaction in my opinion.
  8. Killer reel. I love the personality. Unfortunately, I don't know if I'll remember any of your work vs. the editing of it. But I love the intentionality of making something really simple complex (the intro), thereby making something complex simple.
  9. Yeah, its all really good work and good length. Unfortunately, I can't remember anything about it that makes you stick in my mind.
  10. I'd say that its about 30 seconds too long and that your work is a little redundant. Its obvious that you're a fan of trendy mograph stuff. I'd say, start developing your own voice. Stand out a little. If you stripped away everything down to the one core thing about yourself, what would you have?
  11. It might be a bit surprising to say this, but I would suggest that you give more screen-time for your best projects. Longer shots. It all happens so fast, it seems like stuff is getting crammed in. Take your time. You've got a lot of stuff. Maybe think like R&B shot timing versus Hip Hop timing. Your work has a lot of personality, let that personality marinate a bit. Its strong, you don't have to blast it.

    Yeah, I was surprised you used them. They're an interesting act. I saw them one time at a birthday party in a small rural catholic church in Lancaster, PA. Interestingly, this was after being signed with Maverick.
  13. Let me know if you go with the Celine Dion recommendation.
  14. Yup. Good stuff all around.

    Is that Family Force Five I hear? It works well with the flavor of your work. It's a pretty solid reel. The only thing I don't like about it is the logo. Its way too much. Too much color or type or something. Something simpler would work better.
  16. Yeah. I agree, Beaver. I've been chill, but only like as a "safe" thing. I'd almost rather be fighting for scraps somedays though. Its more of an adventure...
  17. Purple, this career path is about being handed a bunch of new tools you've never used before and being expected to make a masterpiece. We all get crayons in kindergarten and Markers in first grade. Now we just get bigger tools. Be dynamic. And enjoy being creative in whatever mediaform God puts in front of you.
  18. Yeah, its all tight stuff. Your animations are solid. Maybe just try something more narrative.

    Your work has a lot of personality. Just get rid of your "coming soon" pages. They're a tease. And please make your bio in copyable text. If it's gotta be in Flash, please make it dynamic so it can be copied.

    You show a lot of competency in motion production. But design and typography is where your attention should focus. That's your bread and butter.
  21. I agree with Phil that the size is a little bit of a problem. It takes a while to download. Are you using H234? The Eminem and Mr. & Mrs. Smith stuff look vastly inferior to some of your other work. How much of that is student work?
  22. I'm really digging it! I kinda love it. Like seriously. The only thing is that I don't know how much of what you're doing is going to convince a professional employer to hire you. But that aside, its obvious that you're having fun and enjoy what you're doing. That's important.
