    Hey guys!

    This is my very first post here on Polycount... it seems to have a very cool community of artists and I would like to be a part of it!

    I am a 2D/3D animator based on Brazil! I work as a freelance in the ads industry, but my aim is to get into animated series and cinematic productions, which is not common here where I live :'(

    Here´s my latest Demo Reel. Hope you guys enjoy it! Any feedback is welcome!

    Hi all,
    My name is Austin and I'm from Austin, Texas. I'm currently in the last year of my bachelor's degree in Media Art's and Animation. I am hoping to work in the gaming industry with my degree. Right now I'm actually getting ready to start applying for positions in the industry. I have lurked here on polycount for about 6 months.  There are a few things in my demo reel that I need to update and fix for my portfolio defence next week, so I will upload and post it in a few days. I'm looking forward to becoming part of the community here and getting to know you guys and girls.

    Edit* added demo reel finally!

    Hey Polycount!
    My name is Nick Austin and I'm 26 years old and from the US! Currently I'm a freelance animator, but before that I was animating for a year on an indie game called Tuebor. Before all of that I was studying animation at College for Creative Studies in Detroit.  I actually recently moved from the Midwest to California in search of better job opportunities. Its a pleasure to have so many talented people to learn from here!

    Hello All

    I'm Kyle Kenworthy, I've been an animator in the game industry for 10+ years. I'm currently at Schell Games in Pittsburgh PA where I'm the Principle Animator. I also teach animation for CG Master Academy. Been looking to work on more personal tests so hope to be able to work on some of the monthly challenges. 
    You can see alot of my animations here
    https://vimeo.com/channels/1023795/page:1
    Most of these are personal as lots of my professional work is under NDA/not allowed to post online. Shoot me a private message and I can link you to a private video with more professional work if you're interested in seeing.

    And here's a promo vid for my class

    nice animations Nick! there's a frame skip around 0:53 with the tire flipping guy, I think it's a video output issue or frame rate change or something.

    Hello Polycount, I figured some good animators are sharing great work here ! I'm coming for some motivation boost, and hope we can all inspire each other !

    My name is Camille, for a short introduction, I'm a 3D animator currently working on VR games :wink: I used to work in the movie industry right after my graduation at the film school in France. Now, I'm currently located in Amsterdam. 
    I started as a generalist, more or less lighting/texturing/modeling oriented. But after 2 years of looking for my path in 3D, I finally found a greatest interest with animation. And hop, I quickly got on track with gaming and hey, I love that, it's quite addictive, and also I love watching other's reels and your great work all of you !

    I'm sharing my vimeo here, as I just started as an animator 1 year ago I don't have yet a reel but I hope to find good critics on this forum to improve my skills.. Cheers!

    Greetings! 
    My name is Felipe and live in Brazil, still I am doing indie games and studying. I have my own enterprise, at the moment producing a game about vikings for mobile. I am not animator, actually I do lots of things (generalist). Still I haven't decided which specialization I may invest, but I like to do stuffs as modelling, animation, drawing and a bit of texturing. I guess my favourites are animation and modelling. 

    Still I don't have a demo reel, but here is a little demo of my work:

    Hello fellow animators! My name is Miguel Antunez. I am from Austin, Tx and tomorrow is my last day before graduating with an associates in 3d animation. I have been having a hard time trying to figure out what exactly it is that I have to do now that i'm going to be done with school. What I mean by that is that I would love some tips on how to go about landing my first job in this industry. If there are any veteran animators in here I would appreciate some words of wisdom. I would also love to hear some feedback on my demo reel which I will leave the link to.

    Nice work, especially as you are just graduating.

    Your first piece is your shot, I think. I think a general note is you can push your poses a lot more as well as the timing. 

    I know that sounds vague but it really is apparent in the 'pushing car' shot.

    Thanks for the feedback. Pushing my poses is something that I always hear about my animations, and I will be working on that from now on. Thanks again for the advice, it's nice to hear feedback from someone other than teachers. I have tried posting on the 11 second club forum for feedback, but no one ever seems to reply to anything.

    Hello everyone!
    My name is Bijay, im 20 years old (almost 21) from India. I recently joined polycount butnhave just started exploring this place now.
    I began my 3D journey a little more than a year ago, mostly concentrating on the technical part of the software, getting to knownit and all that. I've also done a little bit of modelling and rigging for fun.
    I decided to kick things off in 2018 by focussing mainly on animation, starting from the absolute basics, building up my fundamentals, so yes I'm probably the least experienced in this place.  (Help me get better pls)

    Anyway i hope to meet some people here and be helpful to them if i can and have a good time. Thanks :)

    Hi all, My name is Brae thats me on the right im 25 and live down under here in New Zealand.

    Im not your typical animator as i work with motion capture at a film level (animating at a invisible or should i say realistic level). Iv been working at Weta Digital going on 3 years now, working on films titles such as "War Of The Planet Of The Apes" as well as a selection of "Marvel" and "Dc" films.

    It all began back at university studying full time and freelancing to small studios, jobs were small and few but ranged from animation prep to on set animation/motion-capture technician. What ever was going id put my name forward and take it even if the task seamed daunting, what i can offer from my experience was i wasn't the best but i showed up and worked 110% every time and that got the next job and opened bigger doors along. 

    Fell free to chat me and ill do my best to reply, keen to give back in the CG community that helped me to get were i am today.

    All the best Guys and Girls.

    Cheers,
    Brae.

    Hi guys,
    nice to start to be a part of this community, and happy to meet you all.
    I'm Beniamino Valentini, not yet a professional animator but a "wanttobeone"  o:)  
    I'm italian, 34 years old and fresh out from the second games workshop at iAnimate. I live in Germany since I moved here for working in Adidas as assitant 3D designer for two years and now looking for something more close to what I love to do (read: animation). Before Adidas I worked in Italy in a visualization and VR studio in Milan, and was responsible for rigs, models and animations. So you see, not quite a big experience in games dev, but want to fill this gap as soon as possible :) 

    I post here my animation reel: 

    If you want to connect through linkedin, faceboook or instagram please do it, I will always be happy to know more animators :)

    Hello! My name is Clay Hogan. Nice to meet all of you and great to be here! this is my first Animation Demo Reel. Please let me know what I can do to improve on it and any tips and advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, I never learned how to make a title card for my demo reel, which is why it just jumps right in. please let me know how I can make one or what to use so that I can make my demo reel a little more appropriate. Thank you very much!

    Hi everyone, my name is Richard Derteano and I'm a multimedia student from Lithuania.
    I started learning about animation as a hobby around 3 years ago, but it completely entranced me, caught me in it's grip and still refuses to let go (not that I want it to). I had the privilege to try out 2d, 3d, vfx and motion graphics work and decided that I want to pursue animation as a career, specifically as a 3d game animator. While not much, this is my first demo reel:

  • Ramadanhasani
    Hello everyone,
    I am looking to get into game animation. Currently I do not have a demo reel, I have however tried to make a couple animations. At the moment it is difficult to balance university and practicing animation so the progress has been going on and off for the past couple of months. Regardless, I always try to gain some knowledge by watching a video or reading an article. 
    You can see some of the things I attempted to animate on my instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/ramadananimates/
    Excited to learn more on this forum!

    Hi, my name is Taylor Holmes, I'm a senior animator in the game industry, currently at Respawn Entertainment. I worked on Jedi: Fallen Order, and before that The Avengers Project, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider. I try to stay active on this forum because it's inspiring getting to see everybody's ideas and work, because critiquing is fun and a great way to keep my eye sharp when I'm not doing side projects, and because I want to give back to the community and encourage people to keep pushing. I've been in the position of trying to break into the industry and if I can make that a bit easier for somebody else, I absolutely want to. Feel free to reach out to me anytime if you have questions or want followup on some critique. Also, thanks to everybody who posts their work, and to those who take the time to critique. I enjoy learning from you all.
