“The most helpful thing of all is simply learning how you feel when the film is being shown to 600 people who have never seen it before. Emotionally, it seems like some big hand has come and grabbed you by the hair, picked you up and put you down ninety degrees to one side. And you think, “Oh God, look at that.” It’s as if up to this moment you have been constructing a building but always standing in front of it to evaluate it. Now all of a sudden you are looking at the side of the building and seeing things you seem to have never seen before.”

You’re in the midst of production — the style frames you designed were approved, the work-in-progress animations you’ve sent along to the client were received well, and you’re rapidly approaching the deadline. You’re really happy with how the job looks, and everything is working smoothly. The client is happy, too. This will be a great piece for your portfolio!
But what happens when your client doesn’t want you to use the finished work in your portfolio?"
Great read on showing work, or not being allowed rather. I had some issues with this in the past, and give some advice on the matter. You are only as good as your last project, be careful.
My film is still coming along, I stopped for a month to take on an irresistible project with b-reel/google, but back on it fulltime. Without giving anything away, but still trying to keep your interest, here is a background I recently finished.
Quick shitty test with photos before I illustrate this beast.
