Put the squirrels first. In fact, you could make a reel with only the squirrels. It's easily the best work on this reel. I haven't checked the lipsync yet because I'm required to be muted, but it looks great. Always put your best first; everybody sees it. Nobody's going to see the great work at the end if they turn it off during the good or ok work before it.
Thanks for the advice. To be honest, this was my first animation reel and I was hoping on getting done before CTNX so most of it was pretty last minute. Also, "The squirrels" were actually from my first animation job, so putting them in first makes a lot more sense. I'll be sure to take note of this when I start adding more work next time around.
Nice reel. Now, I don't know, if you want suggestions or not, but i am going to give it to you anyway. I think your cover, with the drawing and your information, is too long. keep it to about five seconds. I really like your shot with the squirrel at the end, where he is saying something. keep it up!
Thanks for the suggestions. The reason I made the intro so long was because I wanted the reel to sync to the music, so I elongated it to pad the time. Looking back at it, it does feel unnecessary. Thanks again.
