Open Source Demo Reel

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019 | Blog, Downloads, Work

Download every source file from every project showcased in the movecraft demo reel. Learn, remix, and share.

Download links:

For my demo reel, I’ve “open sourced” the work and provided all source files for download. It is an exciting prospect for me to provide these files for the benefit of anyone who is curious. Please support this project by following me on twitter, or liking my Facebook page. I went through a hard drive crash a few years back. I lost many source files. Like a box of old junk that you pack up and move from one apartment to the next, It occurred to me I didn’t miss the files all that much. Just as a painting you own does you no good sitting in your basement unseen, your source files don’t do much backed up on a hard drive.

Instructions for use

The majority of the source files are found in the Source Files Part 1 & 2 links above, which download a directory and include Adobe files (AE/AI/PSD) as well as Maxon Cinema 4D files, along with a few VDMX5 files. Newer files are at their respective project pages on my site. Many render passes, source textures, and final outputs have been excised for the sake of file size. I’ve attempted to include files of interest or items I thought might be resourceful. Various 3rd party plugins are used in a variety of files so you may need them to view or use some functionality. The demo reel is an After Effects project file. It has an intro and outro which include the animation and design work in that After Effects project.
