New 2008 Demo Reel

This is my new Demo Reel, showcasing the work that I did during my tenure at Rhythm & Hues.
This included compositing work on the VFX Oscar winning movie The Golden Compass, as well as compositing, paint & rotoscoping work on The Mummy : Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.

I have decided to try and preserve the highest quality of work that was done, so that leads to a HD rendition. As higher quality versions become available I will switch out some of the slightly lower resolution shots to reflect the higher quality, thus allowing for the full effect of the work. Unfortunately the shots that make up the tail end of the reel are from a point when I was not working with that high of output in mind, limiting the resolution that can be displayed.

Due to embedding limitations, to see the full HD version of this reel, you must click through to the Vimeo site, by the link in the lower right of the video.

    It’s rather disingenuous to present shots on a compositing reel that you didn’t composite without clearly noting that distinction. Especially when the element you created did not actually make it into the final shot.

    This is a small industry: try to be tactful.

    it is upsetting to see you take credit for the hard work of others. although it may not be your intention, it is apparently so. animattes and roto don’t constitute a compositing credit when in most cases the shot was keyed regardless.

    fail. revise.

    While I do see where you may be coming from, I would like to point out that at no point to I claim to have composited all the shots in the reel.
    If you take the time to read through the breakdown, you will see that I clearly specify which shots I have composited and which I only worked on the prep of. And while yes my reel title is Compositing, that does cover a wide range of skills from keying, to rotoscoping, so if I spent a significant amount of time on a shot, with work that directly impacted or assisted in the final outcome of the shot, I feel that it is ok to show that, while clearly stating that I did not work on the final result.
    I respect your opinion, but feel that I have made abundantly clear what my efforts were, and to make sure credit was not taken for work that I did not do.
