First Cut

I am putting together a demo reel. This is the first reel I have put together since I got out of school. Now I actually have some work to toss in.

I am looking for brutal criticism. But would appreciate any feedback at all.

Thanks for looking everyone.
Josh

Josh, that's some great work. When I watched the reel it was too fast for me to keep up with and process. The transitions between cuts of pieces was so quick I couldn't appreciate the complexity of the sample. Slow it down a bit and give more complete pieces.

Thanks DocuProducer,

I did slow it down a little bit.
Please let me know what you think.
Alot of people felt the same way you did about the speed.

I really appreciate the comment.

Great work Josh. A few things:
I would cut it together as one montage rather than two, since there isn't that much of a difference in the work in the two sections. You could stand to cut everything down into a really tight 30-45 second piece.
I think you should loose the graphics with a lot of information in them, especially that squid soap near the end.
I think it

Thanks!

I really appreciate direct feedback like that.

Unfortunately I have almost finished a second cut with different music and longer shots. I read the advice on other posts and decided to group similar shots together and take more time on shots I like. I didn't get your advice until I was almost finished. But what you said is very helpful.

The new music plays out to 1:12.

I will post a second cut soon and if you are still hanging around the forum I would like to know if you have the same comments.

I still have some heavy info cards and I would like to know if they are still hard on the eyes at this slower pace.

Thanks again. That link was rad, I will be adding it to my bookmarks.

Thank you so much for you comments. I would like to hear what you think of this second cut. This is the link to the new thread.

I have not had a chance to give what you said a good thinking over in this version and am already looking at a thrid cut (maybe not to post) with you in mind.

Thanks again,
Josh
