End of an Era.
So here is my Showreel for 2011!
Why is it an end of an era? Because this is my first showreel since graduating in 2007 that doesn't contain any of my work from college!
When I think, three and half years, it seems a long time to have been using school work..... but that's a common problem I think for artists in this industry. The problem being that people will often be working on projects under NDAs (Non Disclosure Agreements), such as on films, games or shows where you are not allowed to show anything until after the project in question has been released. So if you work on a project for a few years, or the film isn't released for a long time, it can be hard to keep your reel/portfolio up to date. And EVEN then, by the time it does come out, you could have improved to a point where what you did two years ago is no longer representative of what you're capable of!!
So in any downtime it's crucial to work on personal works to keep it all fresh and up to date. The first 4 shots in this reel, I've done in the last couple of months! Sounds funny.... but i'm looking forward to getting my next gig, just so I can have a rest! ;)
Hope this finds everyone well,
'Till the Next,
