Yet another Motion Graphics Reel

Recommended Posts

I am sorry, but I only take critique from someone who would use Jónsi or even Harry Belafonte for their Reels. Oh, wait... Dang. Actually I had this c4d project, which I ironically named 'jerkycam' and I just placed some comps in there. It's really controversial, some people love the style, some don't.

 

Anyway, thanks for your comments. Here is my Reel minus the jerkycam, minus my recent work, minus windows. I named the camera rig 'nervouscam' though...

Well, I don't know how to respond to that. The second version of the reel certainly works better than the first.

I agree - the second reel works much better than the "shaky" cam version. I would also suggest trimming it down some, to maybe a minute or a minute and a half. I think that would really help along with ditching the camera thing all together. Just my two cents. Looks like you got some C4D chops - keep it up!

I remember having a similar idea when I was putting together my very first reel. It was tempting to try to enhance the work I had and showcase even more of my mad mograph skillz. Instead it distracted form the work, looked like I was trying to hide things, and ultimately came across somewhat unprofessional. I agree with the reasoning of the previous posters against vignetting and would recommend keeping the experimentation confined to individual pieces that can be cut into the reel with the rest of your work.

Thanks everybody for your input. Since it really seems to be an issue to burry my work in a complicated fly-through which, on top, looks somewhat dystopian I finally got rid of it (ok, mostly). It could have been so easy from the beginning...

Awesome - looks much better!
