I like the intro...its a nice touch. Your reel is well done, fun to watch music works, although it makes me feel like I am shopping at Ambercrombie!!!hahaha...

If you made my critque it...I think all the commercial tags like 0% financing and all that stuff cheapens it a bit. Cut that stuff or maybe shorten that section a bit.....

Nice work...

Interesting reel. It wasn't clear to me what was your work and what was promoting you? It may be more clear to someone who had recieved your resume but, I am not confident of that. Typically, you want to make sure there is a distinct seperation between the "wrapper" and the "candy" inside ;)

I was very impressed with the editting of the reel. I agree, also, that you need a bit more context up front about what it is you do. I assume your are a motion graphics designer from watching this, but if you are an editor too, I didn't know that.

Question to everyone - if you are a motion designer, would you want to call out the applications you use in the demo reel itself, or would that always go in cover letter?

I would hire you based on the reel, that's for sure.

Some put it in the reel but I think it's kinda pointless. They are looking for your creativity and design skills not what apps you know. I think there are several that are assumed anyway (PS, Ill, AE)

Thanks a bunch for all your input! I still have a lot of work to do with it and need to shorten it a bit, but for now, I'm happy that I finally have something done. Thanks again!

Very well done! Post the edited version when and if you cut it down as you say.

Great music selection too.
