Eye candy: is this the best demo reel ever created?

Friday, February 4th, 2011 | Posted by Jim Thacker

A lone artist known only as ‘dono’ has posted what may be the world’s ultimate demo reel on Vimeo.

Modestly branding himself a ‘CG artist: 1D | 2D | 3D | 4D | 5D’, dono’s reel features an impressive gamut of skills, from low-poly modelling to fluid simulation. According to his Vimeo page, the reel has already been submitted to ILM and Pixar. It’s only a shame he forgot to include his contact details.

A tip of the hat tip hat to 3DTotal for this gem.

    Seriously this gets front page attention? You know how many artists out there bust their ass everyday trying to get a job and this type of coverage is a slap in the face. Stop giving attention to things like this.

    Agreed, waste of time…. I would have found it legitimate if it was alex roman doing that, showing some contrast being pro and fun … but there….it’s CG CHANNEL come on !!!

    Come on its meant to be a joke. Its making fun of how every demo reel is the same and i think it should inspire people to think out of the norm and be more creative. That’s my take anyway.This video made me laugh my ass off.

    He’s making a joke.

    Check out the guy’s actual 3D projects and you can see he’s got real talent and is just having a laugh with this. ๐Ÿ˜€

    It’s the concept.

    Just because you can do a lot, does not mean you should be showing a lot in the demo reel. It’s about catching attention, in a short 1 min. (:

    Welcome to the industry dude.
