2018 animation showreel for Cool Your Jets; a South African animation and illustration studio!
For your audio-visual pleasure, we’re proud to unveil the 2018 Cool Your Jets Showreel!
Almost four years in the making, the 2018 reel is a brand new collection of work, drawn, painted, rendered and animated by The Jets between now, and the release of our last reel, in August 2014. Over this period we’ve made some of our most fun, ambitious and challenging projects to date, and we’re beyond stoked to be share some highlights, collected in this reel.
