Roll 19

Denis Unishkov's 2019 role features work done in Cinema 4D and Octane. The role shows a lot of unusual and interesting work, and to be clear, I mean that as a compliment.

Blurdesign Showreel 2020

This scroll is a little more standard, but there is a wide variety of work to choose from and it is beautifully done together. This is a little longer than we recommend for demo roles. However, you have a lot of outstanding work to show and keep the attention.

Viacheslav Loiko

Viacheslav's role is a couple of years old, but I only came across it recently. I love his music selection and it is superbly edited to show some before and after work.
