Description

The gateway to getting a job (or a better job) in the visual effects industry is your demo reel. In this workshop your mentor will review your current demo reel and offer you tips for improvement. You will receive documentation outlining the key points for cutting a good demo reel along with several examples of good ones that you can use as guides. You and your mentor will review the guidelines together and discuss how they might be applied to your demo reel. If you wish, you can purchase ShotKits™ to build out your demo reel. This course can be done using any compositing software and does not require the use of Nuke.

Your mentor will also review your current web site or, if you don’t have one, coach you on how to design a good one. You will receive documentation outlining the key points for building a job-getting website plus links to several excellent vfx compositing artist websites that you can use for inspiration. You and your mentor will review the guidelines together and study the example websites to see what is best applied to your case. While we can’t build your website for you, we will provide you with a list of excellent and inexpensive website providers that make it very easy for you to build your own.

The Demo Reel Workshop comes with a total of four hours of personal mentoring that you may use as you wish, when you wish. This is normally plenty of time to cover both topics and produce outstanding results. Additional mentoring time may be purchased if desired. FXEcademy does not try to find you a job. That is your job. Our job is to prepare you as well as possible to win that next job opportunity.
