I thought the reel was pretty good, but I do agree that the Shine is used a bit too much. I personally love all of trapcode's effects, but it seems that Shine is being used in everything, so even I am kinda scared to use it, because I've seen it before--nothing new.
I also think you might want to try and seperate the two, I would rather see JUST an editors reel, and just a motion graphics reel.
It felt too mixed. Music was good, I definitely think thats an important aspect to a good reel. Kept my attention.
