David Firth, an independent writer, animator and filmmaker produced one my favourite showreel pieces. He makes full use of the visual and auditory spectrum in this extremely unique showcase of his work, which doubles as a trailer for his YouTube channel.
In it, Firth actually speaks directly to the viewer, through uniquely directed sequences where he plants his face onto the bodies of celebrities, including Queen Elizabeth. This experimental approach matches the tone of his work, making it a perfect introduction to his world of content.
As I indicted, he makes full use of his audio, including soundbites and dialogue from his many productions edited between the montage of footage, which I maintain adds an important level to this showreel which many lack.
