Bucks animation featured at

Today we're featured at, talking on the subject of student demo reels, and what goes into a great student reel. To see the full article, which sets out a 12-point plan to cut together a great reel, follow this link. Here at Bucks we think that a strong demo reel is the most vital thing that a student will end up with on graduation - far more important than the grades they got, or any other measure of the quality of their work. Studios will judge you on your reel, and it is your demo reel which (for the most part) determines whether or not you will get hired.

(Editor's Note: For more practical advice on demo reels and careers in animation and visual effects, read what Blue Zoo has to say about demo reels.
