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.
