This was a beautiful show reel. Your work is incredibly creative, and easily overshadows work that I've seen done by Hollywood pros. It has given me many ideas which I hope to use in the future. A thousand thanks!

Thank you for re-uploading this, it is a great reel and the size makes it so much more impressive. It was hard to judge in the tiny size but when you see all the great techniques and work in the larger version, it is quite impressive.

Thank you so much for the kind words. The reel is a compilation of the last ten years of work. One thing I should mention, you wrote about the old announcer shot and whether it was animated or not, it's called a parallax animation... basically, you take an existing photo, and photoshop out each element starting from foreground to background.. which doesn't sound hard, but after you cut out the first element, you then realise that you have to replace the hole you made in the photo with the element that is "supposedly" behind it. The photo gets more and more difficult to use because you have to make more and more educated guesses about whats behind the previous element...So if you are doing an effect like that, it becomes very time and labour intensive. Once you have all these layers separated, bring it into after effects and spread them out in z-space, add a camera move and maybe a light or two for shadows and voila!!

Nice to see the pros at work. Great work guys. Love the hockey footage with the 3d like game table and the old time announcer thrown in with all the high tech effects. Not sure how much animation was used there, but it gives me a few ideas on how to approach some shots for some documentary work I'm doing. The super close up of the faces of the players with the masking to get the background action behind them is also a very nice approach. Works real well in this context.
