Updated website

I have updated my website. I made the demo reel the first thing people would see. There is still more I would like to streamline. Check it out!
One area I really like is the new addition to my rigging page. It is a character from my thesis that is still in production. The rig itself is pretty much done, just some cosmetic stuff yet to do.

A big thanks to Cheri Fojtik for helping me set up the lighting rig that makes this simple default lambert look so good!

Subtle Acting Animation Done

Here is a finished version of the Subtle Acting piece that I will use for my demo reel. Fixed up some lighting and texture issues and even added some 3d motion blur to soften the edges.

Subtle Acting, much better

Fixed up a bunch of stuff here. The new lighting really makes a difference and I changed up some subtleties in the textures of the characters. Way more readable.

Subtle Acting, Rough Render With Environment

Here's the latest. Let me know what you think. The background elements might be a little bit too busy, but not bad so far. I really needed to see a full render with the environment to get a better idea.

Subtle Animation For Portfolio

This is a subtle animation piece that I need to round out my portfolio

audio from How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
size is approx 6 mb (if anyone knows how to make these smaller without loss, let me know)

current stage of progress: unstepped blocking 2 with initial lipSynch (don't worry too much about the female's eyelids yet)

I would really appreciate some feedback to make this the best it can be

btw: this is my first video post please excuse the testing (any suggestions)
