Demo Reel

Recommended Posts

Here is my newest demo reel that I was looking to get some opinions on. I have been trying to get a job and have not had much success. I was hoping to get some honest feedback for better or worse on things working for me and things working against me. Hopefully this will allow me to enhance my reel to get me started.

Nice BMW Z4.

 

One thing: I would look into changing the type to something more slick on the Powerade spot. Also, cut down time on individual pieces in there...pacing is a bit slow.

 

I think it would be a good idea to show some of your own work - non advertising, just something to show off your signature style. Have fun with some DZINE.

 

ciao ciao.

Again, 4give me if I'm redundant; I never read these posts. I just go 2 the end. Get rid of the text in the begining; u got sum real good lookin stuff, it makes eveything else look weak. Reminds me of Galaga.The hammer thing is wack compared to everything else 2. Remember, u want 2 wow people first. So I would put ur strongest stuff 1st. Like that Autodesk, Sony thing @ the end. It's kinda annoying that ur reel doesn't auto rewind also. The NBC thing at the begining, I would change the font; if that's what the client wanted, that's different; but u don't have 2 use what the client approved, trick it out, it's ur reel. Make every graphic urs.

- Overall, the reel feels unfocused and lacking a sense of drive and/or energy.

- The 15-second intro is too long and disjointed.

- Drop the TLC pieces. The guy is in silhouette but looks like he doesn't even want to be there.

- You're playing two different audio tracks over each other at the end.

- Cut the disclaimers on the individual pieces.

 

From the looks of the other comments, typography and pacing are your weak points.
