Get inspired by these “Zootopia” demo reels

Zootopia demo reels

When “Zootopia” first released images a while back, I got pretty stoked. The amount of visual interest that was put into the designs made my eyes sing with delight. Then the film came out and I watched as an hour and 48 minutes of animation gold went sailing past my eyes. It was fantastic.

Now, something even better has happened. A whole bunch of super talented animators (and one storyboarder!) have started releasing demo reels. And we all know that nothing brings home the effort, appeal and sheer animation goodness like a demo reel.

In an effort to fully appreciate the quality of the shots linked together in “Zootopia,” we’ve complied some of the reels that have been put out so far. The wealth of information in the shots below is incredible. So, grab a piece of paper and a pencil, pick a reel, and enjoy!
