Yeah I thought it was about time to construct my first ever demo reel since I'm trying to get into a lot more freelance work. This includes clips from almost all of my past movies. It even includes footage from future cartoons, including pencil tests from my Animation course at school. Yeah the growling angry short guy's name is Mr. "Burch" Burchibald.

Runtime: 1 Minute 46 Seconds

Sorry if the quality is a little ghosty and grainy, some of my original footage is a little screwy and I can't get more. Also Premiere is a freaking pain, but this should be a fun watch anyway. Enjoy.

Music: "Mahna Mahna" covered by CAKE

Amazing as always

As always, great work!

Watching this reminded me of all of those times when I watched you animate back in High School.
It's only a matter of time before a movie or TV show proudly lists your name in the opening credits as lead animator. Until that day, good luck with finding freelance work!

Seriously, why arent you on the TV Screen

Your animation style is top class, and the classic humor reminded me of the golden days of cartoons, well done man, and I can't wait to see your future project :)

Why aren't you on TV?

This is a very, very good showreel. You have heaps of talent when it comes to animating, and like Sapphire, I could definitely picture you animating your own series on TV. The only main problem with this would obviously be the fact that, due to this being a showreel, this has no story, but what the heck, if I had to review it as a showreel and not a story-based flash movie, which I am going to do, then this receives 10/10, for sure.

The animation is, of course, out of this world. I think your animation surpasses even some of the animations of cartoons I used to watch on TV when I was young. All of the animation was extremely professional, especially the part when the camera is flying past those houses, it looks 3D-ish and full of detail. Still, all of the animation was top-notch, from the disintegrating of that cyan-haired kid in the scene with all the laser guns, to the camera movements, to the facial expressions, etc... The only one nitpick I can bring up would be the fact that in the meteor scene, I think the meteors in the background had a sort of unnatural falling animation, for some reason.

The graphics are brilliant, and also look professional. The colour schemes fit very well in each scene, and everything was drawn really well. I was also impressed by the huge amount of detail you put in, especially in the backgrounds. You took care of every single detail, adding different items, billboards, posters, and a variety of different buildings to make this really interesting. The characters looked all very comical and the character style was really good. I'll have to agree with CheppZanoff though about the fact that the character style is a lot like the one of 'Fairly Odd Parents' xP.

The humour isn't that prominent in this, but as the other reviewers said, the classic cartoon humour here and there such as the 'Nooooooooooooo!' scene, the disintegrating scene, and of course, the body odour scene at the end (which was a great way to end the showreel, by the way). Overall, the humour was present, even if not in large amounts, and heck, it's hard to add humour to a showreel with scenes of 2-5 seconds each xD, and even then, you succeeded in adding typical cartoon humour which puts a smile on anyone's face.

I don't really agree with sixflab about adding the audio of every scene instead of a whole song. Personally I think that the song set off a great mood for the flash, and fit very well. It's also one of the catchiest tunes invented since the beginning of time, so I won't complain about the song itself either xP. Great sound quality, too.

In general, this is a very good showreel, worthy to be on TV for sure. Apart from the weird animation on the background meteors in the meteor scene, which is a very very minor flaw, I think that your animation and graphics are flawless and your humour and style is, while not necessarily unique, very comical, cartoony and awesome. Keep up the great work, you've got talent, and a lot of it.

-I will just throw it out there that I love compilations. If done right they can be amazing and if done wrong they can look like pieces of junk. Overall i'd say you did a great job of mixing different elements of humor together with the pencilmations to make it enjoyable to watch. It would of been nice to have the actual audio from the animations but a random song works well regardless.

-It makes me want to go watch some of your other stuff honestly. It does it's job in that department. You put some great little snippets of some episodes that sparked my interest.

Dang.

This is pretty nice. Almost 2 minutes of random clips of one's own creation. It's something pretty common, but the thing is that this is actually done nicely compared to most compilations.

Animation and art are pretty nicely done. It's above average work and also maintains it's own unique charm to it. It's almost the caliber of the work you would see in a typical american cartoon, but you know the cartoons that came a few years after Johnny Bravo, Dexter, Ren & Stimpy, and all of them reigned supreme. To be honest the art style in a few of the clips reminds me of The Fairly Oddparents. xD 8/10

Sound is one song, lol. Nevertheless the song choice really does a good job of setting the mood for the compilation and even if it's only that one song playing throughout the whole time, the events in each clip are self explanatory enough for viewers to really not even need any sound besides the music. The music is crystal clear too by the way. 8/10

Humor is where you got me on a few of these. Classic animated comedy permeates pretty much this entire compilation and I do like to reminisce on childhood memories of the cartoons I would watch in the morning and afternoons when I'd get ready to go to or come home from elementary school and middle school. The jokes are simple enough to be understood by a wide range of audience and they do a good job on delivering the jokes. Thumbs up for classic 90's-early 2000's cartoon humor. 7/10

Overall this showreel you've put together was enough to get my attention directed towards you as an artist and I do look forward to viewing what you have to offer now and in the future. :) 7.5/10 (Just wish I could give half stars on this blasted ratings system, you get an 8 on the score system because 7.5 rounds off to 8)

KAMAYKAZAY!
