This month we'll be using the features within After Effects to show you how to get noticed. You may be a great animator or 3D modeller, but in a client's eyes, you're only as great as the work you can present to them. You can increase the impact of your best work by showcasing it within a showreel that uses creative software to the full.

When a client is approached with a showreel, it's often an unexciting linear reel. Nothing wrong with that, of course; it does the job. But we're going to take this a step further, showing you how to jazz up your showreel with some AE trickery to make sure it stands out.
