My Demo Reel (From 17 Years Ago!)

I had a lot of direct messages from people asking about this so I just thought I’d take a second to mention it again.
You can get the class at VFXCOURSE.com

It’s a new VFX class I put together
It’s 9 videos – and takes a live action visual effects shot through from start to finish.

I don’t know how long it will be available, but just dig into it now and enjoy.

I also included all of the assets, footage, 3d tracked cameras, and everything else. Plus a few bonus videos.

No catch, but if you can share the link with others (of course only if you find it valuable) then that would be payment enough. I just want to give back where I can.

But if you want to know more go to vfxcourse.com

I’ll try to post more videos in the future.

Quick question – what topics would you like to see covered in future tutorials?

Let me know?

At the time I was happy with my demo reel. However, I was teaching medical animation for the last several years and the work that my students are doing makes me cringe at what I was putting out in 2005 with 3ds Max 5. Thanks for sharing this.

Mircea Goia

Allan this stuff is amazing man, I can't even make a cube in maya :D, all jk aside, this is very entertaining to watch and motivates me to try new things no matter how cringyey they look it's a learning experience, thank you
When you realize that he did all this during a time when Maya didn't even have fluids at all. No wonder you the man Allan Mckay! Hats off!

l remember the lost in space movie and some screen shots from that movie in max 2.0 viewport that was your work l belive and at that time space explosion scenes were imazing man
Yogesh Raj Kumar
its great watching your videos bro, i note these down in books, so i could follow em up later, cause my laptop just limits me, i cant afford a high end PC for making visual effects and I am quite limited to what my laptop could do, so i just make 2D artworks and little motion graphics (in my channel) for now, but once i get a new PC with the earnings i hope i can make cool stuff like you <3

I had just graduated High School 17 years ago, I'm amazed you caught on so quick and new all this. I still didn't know what Maya was but was eager to eventually go back to trying to figure out how VFX and Character Artists did their work. I started learning in 2011 and been amazed with VFX and 3D character modeling ever since. Thanks for sharing this Allan, I think it's still really impressive even for today.

You're embarrassed and I still haven't composited a simple explosion in my shot.
Diogo Carrijo
