@01:41Thanks for the link! It looks like he went to AnimationMentor since he has their characters on his reel. They provide rigs for all of their students to use, which is why everyone's student work has similar characters.
@01:41SCAD apparently^^ Daniel Floyd is a game jounalist and designer as I take it. Makes great video podcasts about the many pitfalls and concerns in game development. Some of his stuff can be found on YouTube ( [link] ) It was quite interesting cause the style of characters in your reels looks similar^^
