Final Class at Animation Mentor


Things are starting to get going at Animation Mentor again, so I thought I'd update you on what's happening! My Leave of Absence was definitely needed, as my day job got very busy and tiring, but in terms of doing new shots and revising all my learnings, I was only partially successful I'm afraid.

Successful because I got going on 2 new shots, but only partially so because I would have liked to do a bit more. And I almost entirely failed on the revision front.
However, I think I needed a break, and am feeling a lot fresher coming back in. It's great to be properly a part of AM again, as I really did miss being on campus and utilizing all the amazing energy and passion that place exudes!

So, Class 6 - Polishing and Portfolio. This is where we take all of the shots that we've done at AM, pick out the ones with the most potential, and spend some time polishing them up nice so as to dazzle anyone that looks at them.

So I thought I'd upload my shots here as well and get your opinions on your favourites. I've just thrown them together in a roughly chronological order - this is in no way what I would consider to be a "Demo Reel" of any kind. Just all my shots in one place.

Let me know which ones you think work best or have the most potential!

  1. Hi Sarah,

    Your demo reel looks really good!! I have been out of the 3D arena for a couple of years now concentrating on Project Management and developing .net solutions...

    I wish I had stuck at it but, needed to pay the bills...

    Anyway, great reel!! Glad it has worked out for you :-)

  2. monkey bars and the old lady piece with some clean are my favorites for your reel.

  4. Hi Andrew - great to hear from you! Thanks! The last few years have flown by, and I've learnt so much. Yeah, I'm extremely lucky to be in the position I'm in and be able to do Animation Mentor. Let me know if you ever get back into animation - always happy to give feedback on any shots you do.

    Thanks Justin! I've been working hard all term and your 2 favourite shots have made it onto my reel!
    Yeah, unfortunately I haven't posted as often as I should! Life has been mega-busy. I'll be updating again soon though - term's nearly finished and I'll put up my final reel and an update. Thanks for continuing to show an interest!
