A huge thanks to all of our presenters – we finished right on time, but we’ll definitely set up time slots next time to guarantee a spot to those pre-registering.
* Representing our host, Alex Ionescu presented the ePrize LLC 2011 and 2010 demo reels.
* Joseph Coleman: presented his demo reel – which I’m not going to hesitate to say, demonstrated very powerfully the effect of a well-polished reel – and a short, which I’m failing to find a link for.
* I don’t have a reel to link yet, but, I demo’d the results of my time with the Joan of Arc modeling tutorial to get some feedback & crits.
* Jasmine Harris was unable to attend, but here’s her portfolio.
I wish I had links to the rest of the great material shown that night, but thanks to all of you for sharing your work!
