This is my current animation demo reel, featuring hand drawn and cgi character animation work.  There are some new pieces of animation, as well as some old ones. I figured it was time to update it since the old one is a bit outdated. 

Rigs were provided by AnimSchool.com and digitaltutors.com.
"Big Guy" and "Jack" models provided by Chuck Gammage Animation Studio
A more detailed breakdown of credits can be found here: animation.sheridanc.on.ca/port…

Dialogue Clips are from "Parks and Recreation" and "Batman Forever"

Soundtrack is the karaoke instrumental toThe Veldt (Originally Performed By Deadmau5 & Chris James).

wish all the luck for you. After finish my current college, I hope I can go for animaton school too.
Anyway, I'm wondering, is there any way to work on animation industry IF you aren't able to make 3d/2d animations?
I mean back then there was so much jobs for background illustrator, character design, property and set, but now the jobs
are reducing since they use more of 3d stuffs rather than 2d.

Anyway, I hope you able to get the scholarship!

Thanks for wishing me luck. I really appreciate that. To answer your question, there are quite a few jobs in the animation industry that aren't directly related to actually animating a character, although at the moment from what I understand animator is one job title that currently has more job openings than others within this industry. Layout and background illustration are still common job titles today, As are matte painters, a job that is used in animation and live action. Jobs like these require more painting skills and knowledge of composition.

Other jobs include modelling, rigging, texturing, compositing, and rendering, which are pretty much cgi specific jobs. Hand drawn productions would have more of a need for clean up artists and compositors. Also, any animated production requires storyboard artists, so that's another job to consider. 

I hope that answers your question, best of luck with pursuing an education in animation. It's a lot of fun. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

Looking really good! I so desperately need to put together a new demo reel. I haven't made one since I got into the industry... that's bad, lol. I think my last reel is 7 years old now. YIKES!

Thanks, I'm glad you like it :) And hey, even if it has been 7 years that doesn't seem to have been a problem for you. It'd be cool to see an updated one though.

I plan on making one soon. I dont have any personal work, but at least I could put together some stuff from Civilization 5, Bioshock, and The ElderScrolls Online.

Thanks, it took me forever to find a song. I don't even really listen to this music, I just heard my brother listening to it and felt the background music would work nicely since it doesn't really overpower the visuals.
