Character Animator Reel

Long time since my last post as I have been working on my character animator reel over the past 2-3 months.
A very challenging fact I faced was to equalize the animation level for all shots as my reel has old and new shots.
After polishing the animation I spent most of the time rendering the shots out and editing the material.
Very fortunate to bump over Django's Reinhardt work last year and find the song 'Brazil' which matched with the 'mood' I was looking for the reel.
I am happy with the final product and I hope you like it too.
