I've been trying to land some paid editing work in the Seattle area but so far I've had little luck, wondering if it has to do with my demo reel. If anyone can give me some feedback or suggestions on what's good or lacking in it, I'd really appreciate it. https://vimeo.com/253198116
What type of work are you trying to get with your reel? Your description says you are an editor, director, producer. If this is a reel to show off your editing and producing skills your reel is really bad. You created a montage reel that is used to show off motion graphics and cinematography. If you want to show off your editing skills I want to see an actual scene you cut. That tells me about the pacing and your style. I'm looking for your edits to be hidden and move the story along. A montage won't tell me any of that. I would show off parts of 2 or 3 of your favorite scenes. Also, I would really dump the lightning VFX in the middle of the reel. Hope this helps and best of luck in the job hunt.
