Here is my most recent reel, tailored to apply for a Digital Cinematographer job:

It's been two weeks since I applied, and no word yet, so I assume this reel wasn't enough to impress. I'd be very grateful for some thoughts from the community.

Thanks,

Patrick,

I liked it! It has some nice shots and editing. I particularly liked the magic carpet. However there is one thing that I think could be improved, if I can be so bold. That is the music and while that can be a very contested subject. The track you choose has a very angry tone "at least to me" and I think you would be better served with much more upbeat track. Something very energetic. Its rare that I run across a client that does not want something hip and exciting and when I look for talent I definitely check audio choices as well as editing capability. Hope this helps.

Thanks, David!

I think you make it an even 50/50 split now on the music, which probably isn't good odds. I will be redoing my reel once the project I'm working on now screens at The Smithsonian, and look for something more upbeat then. I can't just change the music now, as that would force me to recut the whole thing anyway to work with new music.

Do you think it's just the lyrics that make it sound angry? Maybe I could edit them out and just use the music...

Thanks again for your feedback!
