JUNE 21 : DMALA PRESENTS : REEL TALK WITH BENJAMIN BUDZAK
Guest Speaker Ryan Summers (submit your reel, get free tickets**)
MUSIC VIDEOS VFX : Arvin Bautista
REEL TALK returns with a review of what can make your reel represent your work better. What makes a reel more interesting to studios who are looking to hire you, and how to edit a successful reel with years of material, or with only a few projects under your belt.
We will have special prizes and spotlights for people who submit their work for review.
Your ticket is free if you submit a reel + tickets for your friends. (Whether or not it is picked for review)
It may have been a long time since you've created a demo reel. You're not alone. Maybe it's time to take a look at the work that you've created again. There's something in there.
Maybe you just want to come get some inspiration by seeing some of the animation, visual effects, and compositing scenes that your colleagues have compiled.
Make sure your reel is a small size (at or under 100mb) or else it will not play properly...a good output setting is h264 or prores LQ...AME also has a good vimeo preset as well... Once you submit it, I will number them based on the order they appear and move them to another folder...so, if your folder has vanished, it means I got it and saved it to another folder...
