the only word that comes to mind is... bazzare. lol

I duhno, its original thats for sure, but honestly if you were trying to show off your graphics & or editing skills by the time i got to the end i had no idea what you did. There were all these cool looking shots, but that doesnt show any editing skills, then there were some cool graphics here and there, but mixed in with a bunch of stuff im not sure if you shot or if you just put in your reel to take up time.
Original none the less

Less schtick, more content. It is hard to understand just what you are promoting about yourself. Shooting? Editing? Graphic design? Some of the scenes are just way too long.
However the "Faggot/Drag Queen" scene was frickin' hilarious. That is the type of clip that will make you demo stand out from the rest. You need to only put in the "punchiest" most "catching" stuff you got and do it quick. Pick only the spots that a viewer will remember after the reel is done. -J

LOL Very unique. I like the theme, maybe use about 25% of that extra stuff so you can get right to the work. Your concept is great though, if you do change it, keep this version on your site or make an entire piece out of the educational film stuff.

decent work. Nothing spectacular but decent. The cuts however sucked. Fix your cuts and it should be alright.

Not too crazy about the site. Doesn't look professional. The reel is unique, but also lacks professionalism. Hope this helps and God bless.

Hey --

I loved the reel. As said above, enough of it stands out to capture attention. That said, it is kind of hard to tell what you did; for instance, did you track "heteroville" into the crane shot? If so, way cool. If not, I'm not sure what the shot is doing there. Might be a good thing to let us know what you did in these productions.

But I really got a kick out of the irreverant style and the old mental hgiene movies.

This would have caught my eye if it was in a stack of reels I was going through.

- Dex
