My first demo reel..........ouch.

Someone on the AM forums posted their first reel and so I had to dig mine up to take a look. I haven't seen this in about six years, and when I watched it I almost died of laughter. This was my very first reel coming out of school. Yeah ouch......seriously......amazingly.....awful! But I thought this was fantastic at the time! I wish they had animation mentor back then.....

Go ahead, have a laugh on me!

Pure Genius! Wow, it's so cool to see progress. I love that. I know what you mean about thinking "this is good" and now looking back and going, "What they ....?" :) WOOT! Thanks for the entertainment. :)

Best animation ever! That dancing flower was a stroke of genius! Or maybe just a stroke. Either way... animation GOLD, sir.
