Ravensbourne student and motion graphic designer Tom Phipps has created this showreel to promote himself and show off what he can do.

Sure, showreels are nothing new but many of them are just so dull. Tom has created something exciting to show off his work that keeps you watching until the end.

The lesson to learn here is that the more you can do to make employers want to look at your work, the better. Something that is exciting to watch will hold attention until the very end whereas something even slightly boring may just turn people off. Keep them entertained.
