Demo Reel Feedback Requested
on Sep 5, 2006 at 6:19:49 pm

Hi All,

I'm looking for constructive feedback on my first demo reel. Also looking for a good hosting site as Google seems to be re-encoding the file at a pretty low data rate.

Thanks,

Greg

I think its a little long. I would cut it in half, the pace needs to pick up.

I would also lose the interviews at the front. maybe just one or two.

I have to agree with Josh...It's a little long. Also, I really don't care for the music. I'm not sure what you're trying to show in this demo, your shooting skills?... or editing skills? If you're demoing your shooting skills, I would leave out the graphic intensive stuff.

If you want to show interviews in your demo, it wouldn't hurt to hear the sound quality of the interviews.

Very nice shooting by the way. Nice editing and graphics. You obviously have talent, it's just a matter of targeting your demo to the right people for the right gig.

I appreciate the feedback. I'm a one man show right now doing everything from storyboard to final output so I wanted to show my full-range of skills. I wouldn't use this reel for a specific gig but rather if I were seeking a full-time Director of Video Production job.

I've shortened the reel and will bring the interview audio back and repost later.

Thanks!
