At the moment, I have four different part of my showreel that I hope to achieve.
- The beginning of the showreel that displays my name and job role I will be applying for. As mentioned in the previous post, I hope to get a video with the use of video effects to display my name as it will make for an eye-catching beginning and start to show off what I can do for the employer.
- The first compositing work will consist of a moving model on a flat background, such as a picture, to show my simple skills of visual effects. At the moment I have been working on a mechanical spider than crawls along my desk, and it looks good at the moment.
- The second compositing work will consist of a video and a model within the video, this will be similar to the work of Lammie Veracruz's showreel from Escape Studios, where the sound system is placed very well into a video. This will show off more complicated methods of visual effects, and also show my use of Boujou (or similar software).
- The third compositing work will be my most advanced piece of work. At the present moment I'm not quite sure what that will be, perhaps a video with my visual effects placed in or perhaps working with a Film Student and creating a short 30 second video that would be beneficial to both myself and them.
Throughout some more research, I will be able to understand what best to attract an employer's eye, and how I should go about doing that.
