Would love to hear some good criticism on my latest reel here:

Getting ready to make some changes and would love to know what everyone thinks could make the reel better.

Thanks!

Good day Nick,

Over all a very nice reel. The only advice I could give you is the couple of shots in the middle when you come out of the collage wall is to take them out or put their audio underneath. I found that it didn't add anything to your reel.

Keep up the good work!

Cheers,

John

Cool! Thanks for taking the time to give me some feedback. I'm getting ready to re-cut and I just didn't know what was dragging and what was working for others.

Thanks again!

Nick

The "can you kick it" part looks way worse than the rest to me.
It's way too repetitive. Half way through you'd shown your skills and were just showing the same thing again. It got really boring. Either bring something new to the table or make it A LOT shorter, or both.

That's my two cents. Less is more. Boring doesn't help you.

Hey:

Thank you for your honest critical feedback. I was afraid the reel was dragging a touch which is why I sought critique from other professionals in the field. I'm working on a bunch of stuff I can't add just yet that I'm going to incorporate into the reel come autumn, but in the mean time I think I will shorten it up some to keep it from dragging.

Thanks again,

Nick

Very cool. All in AfterEffects? How long you been doing motion graphics for?

Thanks for the mad-phat kudos. I've been working in AE for about six years now. The majority of this reel was After Effects. There is a little bit of 3D Max in there, but it's mostly elements for larger AE compositions.

Thanks again for taking the time to check out my work.
