    Blender Journey: Year 03

    This is my Blender Journey: Year 03.



    Disclaimer: The live action graphic composite, with the guy behind the control panel, is from the Blender Foundation's short film "Tears of Steel". I was NOT one of the graphics artists on this project. I was the actor in the containing shots. Also, this video contains some projects from tutorials and collaborations. Credits below.

    Here are the videos to my previous years of my Blender Journey.

    Year 2 - Blender Sophmore - http://vimeo.com/34759183

    Year 1 - Blender Genesis - http://vimeo.com/21277357

    Excited for another year of Blendering!!!

    Cheers,

    Great concept, great works.
    In my opinion, a shorter reel works better. 2 minutes long would be great for a reel (of course it depends on what you want!). I know it's difficult to know which work left, which one to get out, but a rule of thumb in that cases is: do not repeat clips (just select the best part of it), put only the best you can.

    My 2 cents.
    Cheers and congrats!

    I totally agree with your sensibilities to make a better reel. Every point you made is spot on. For me these annual Blender videos I do are not reels. I purposely pull the work, experiments and even some tutorials that are un-reel worthy. The point of it, for me, is to be able to capture and remember the journey I made with Blender with renders that would otherwise just sit on drives forever.

    If I were to make a demo reel for myself it would do all the things you said and not be a Blender exclusive reel, because I work a lot in after effects. It would also pull all my favorite work not just work from 2012.

    Like the line says at the beginning "This is not a demo reel. This is my Blender Journey. Year 3". However, I do agree with all your points, and perhaps even though it's not a reel may have still made the video better and more accessible at 2 minutes. Still has a pretty good flow at the long 4 though I think.

    agreed 100%. You rock, man. I've said it before: awesome concept on this video.

    ps: my own workflow years ago was with AE too. But i've switched to full Blender (i mean, the motion graphics, editing and post). If you have a time please check it and tell me what you think!

    WOAH!!! That's spectacular! Great work. I can't believe you're doing all your post in Blender. Coming from After Effects too. Wow. You're definitely pulling it off. That's so cool man Blender's such a cool suite. So freakin' comprehensive. Thanks for pushing it forward and showing everyone you can use this stuff professionally as an all inclusive post pipeline. That is truly awesome.
