What 10 things a good showreel has?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

A rather blunt question:  What are the 10 things you would want to see in a  good showreel offered by a fledgling small indie 3D company?
 

As in:

  •  They know how to model sophisticated models
  • They know how to rig animated characters
  • They can do fires,  crashes  and explosions
  • They can do amazing Cloth Sim
  • They can do amazing Archviz exteriors and interiors
  • They can do really cool Science Fiction spaceships
  • They can do amazingly convincing virtual nature landscapes
  • They can do really horrifying monster villains
  • They can make amazingly detailed and convincing textures
  • They know how to populate a moving crowd scene of characters
  • They can well simulate moving cars and vehicles
  • They can do amazingly convincing  fruit,  vegetables and food
  • They can do amazingly abstract Motion Graphics
  • They can do killer Voronoi crumbling rocks
  • They can do amazing Hair sims
  • They can do great water flow simulations
  • They can do great caricatures

 

And possibly other related characteristics of the company,  such as:

  • The group have speedy output turnaround
  • They are located nearby
  • Their prices are good

 

etc.,  and so forth.

What would YOU say the Top 10 were,   and in what order?


best,  ras

Yeah you're overthinking this. If you're a client, they just want to see cool sh*t you've done before. They generally couldn't care less how you did it or what systems you used.

Unless your client is some agency or 3rd party looking for a specific skill set, in which case they tend to ask, so again the showreel doesn't necessarily have to showcase it - just be good enough that people want to enquire further.

Make your show reel generally the best stuff you have ever done, edit it impactfully but tastefully, get some cool tunes behind it, and it doesn't need much more thought than that to be honest ! 🙂
