Hi, Everbody.

I'm interested in constructive feedback on this, the "first draft" of my graphics reel.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

- John

i like it. i would just leave out the really simple text. it undermines the rest of the motion graphics you have going on. i really liked the outlining you did, but do not add more. it's paced well. also, i would only leave those effects that are eye catching. lastly, please divide your reel into sections. i noticed you have TV spots and DVD menus.

Nice reel. I immediately crapped myself when I heard the song cause it's the EXACT one I used on my reel. The soldier part went a little slow, and it would help to have more information about yourself somewhere nearby. Good stuff though,

Thanks for the feedback.

Yeah, I think that the pace needs some tightening. At some point I need to host it on my own site rather than through my Mac account and include some more info.

That's funny how you use the same song. Jurrasic Five is one of my favs. Is your reel posted anywhere?

I think one of the golden rules about demo reels is NOT to put any tutorial work on it. Your reel opens with a tutorial job that can actually be found here on CreativeCow on doing reflections. I suggest you lose (replace) the green book ends.

A large part of the industry visits this site for whatever reason and the last thing you want to have is for a person in the position to hire look at the work and recognize a straight tutorial job.

The other stuff looks good.

Good point.

I was in a rush to post something. Thanks for the input. I'm going to change that.
