My 2011 Reel
Posted 27 January 2012 - 10:51 PM
I have just been approved as a member on these forums, even though I've been a silent spectator for a good while. I hope I'm not too spammy when I post my reel the first day..
Anyway, I wanted to post my reel to see if I can get any feedback at all. I've had a look at some other reels in this forum, and I don't think I'm nowhere near any of you guys, but it would be very helpful for me to get some feedback so I could improve.
My reel is a mix of alot of different things, I've recently graduated from film school where I usually did the editing and cinematography jobs, so there is a few of those in there. In the last year of uni and up til now I've been growing a keen interest in motion graphics and animation, so theres some of that in there as well.
Have a look at the reel here:
My website is also pretty recent with more portfolio stuff, have a look at that here if your interested:

Some standout clips for the chopping block:
- the jet at :35
- the sequence at :39 with "scary eyes", buildings, a stickman, and the dude in the car -- chop chop chop chop
- pandas vs dinosaurs, and the guys getting blown up :46
- "ride free media"
- the big-headed guys are amusing, but overstay their welcome
- soldiers at 1:04
- particle test at 1:07
- you can lose most of the tilt-shift shots -- they also overstay their welcome

I agree, there is quite a few things in there that needs to be cut out. I'm gonna try to follow your advice and cut it in half. The tilt-shift and big-headed video was featured that much because they where very recent projects, but I agree, its way too much of it.
Thanks for the advice, very helpful and maybe the Vimeo link will be updated in not too long...
