3DPDX has extended the deadline for this year’s demo reel review event. If you missed the last one, don’t make the same mistake, as these are hugely fun and inspirational. The reel event is being pushed to its proper place (as is tradition): Design Week Portland, coming April 15–23. Entered reels have a chance at winning some great prizes, including:

VFX category winner: A license of Blackmagic Fusion Studio

3D category winner: A license of SideFX Houdini

Motion Graphics winner: A license of Trapcode Tao

All winners will receive three months of training from Lynda.com, and the grand prize winner takes home a year. Grand prize and audience choice winners will also receive a local prize pack containing goodies like passes to OMSI’s Empirical Theater and the like!

Start spicing up your reel or submit your masterpiece at www.vfxpdx.com. This deadline extension gives you ample time to polish your reel with the redux it needs to move to the top of the stack. Along with the additional prep time, the prize pool and program for the night stands to get even bigger, as does the crowd! More details on the exact dates and times for demo reel submission and the event will be posted soon.
