I know how difficult it is trying to land your first gig, and how easy it is to get lost along the way. Enter Reeview.it, a portfolio review service that can help you improve your reel and fast forward your career. Reeview.it will connect you with a working professional, who can “reeview” your demo reel, and give you detailed feedback and advice. They have wide variety of “reeviewers” who specialize in different fields and come from different leading studios (Not just animation). With their platform, the “reeviewers” can draw directly over your Youtube or Vimeo reel, which makes it really easy for them to get very specific with their feedback.
Reeview.it shared some sample reviews with me for animation and modelling. The feedback given is on par with the major online animation schools (I have attended most of them, so I’m speaking from experience). Exactly this level of attention to detail can make the difference between having an okay reel and an amazing reel. The more highly trained eyes you can get on your work, the better you can really gauge where you are as an artist, and what you need to do to achieve your dream job. It’s also a good opportunity to test the waters if you’re thinking about trying a review-based online school that will similarly pair you with an industry professional.
One caveat: If you’re new to getting feedback on your work, you will need to learn quickly how to develop a thick skin as Reeview.it intends to give you the tools you need to grow as fast as possible. As a result, they will not hold back. For more information check out the promotional video below or visit Reeview.it.
