Before we say anything, here is the finished product first: Storyocity’s 2019 Demo Reel: What Makes You?
We’re Guided by Principles.
We reference our founding principles quite often because we’re proud to be a dedicated group of visual artists lead by purpose. Our principles help us define what our work is, how it looks, and how it works for our clients. It also helps us find satisfaction in every project we work on.
“I don’t believe in the industry saying: one for the meal, one for the reel. I think with the right dedication to your craft and attitude, you can find creative fulfillment in any prompt sent your way. You just have to be willing to push yourself as an artist, and stand firm on your beliefs.” - Garret Ollish, Co-Founder, Storyocity
What Makes You?
This is a question we often ask ourselves as a collective, as well as individuals. Fostering deep grounded connections in ourselves as artists and creators helps us continue to push the envelope of our own capabilities without getting burned out. “What makes you?” is such a vague question. How the recipient chooses to answer that questions already gives a little peak into their soul.
To give our own unique spin on the industry cliché yearly demo reel, we’ve decided to loosely give our reels a theme. This years theme is based on introspection. Wherever possible, we wanted to include shots that weren’t just the best of the best of what we’ve made, but we also wanted to include lots of shots that show introspection, connection, and human moments. It’s one of the reasons we decided to open on a close up of eyes. They are the windows to the soul after all.
We made sure to include some well designed visual eye candy too! It wouldn’t be a demo reel without that sweet, sweet eye candy.
2018 was a crazy year for us but we’re looking forward to what 2019 brings!
