Demo Reel Suggestions

So I've worked for my church for about a year and im no pro at after effects but im competent in it. I decided it was time to throw together a demo reel. I'm looking for suggestions on how i can improve upon it. Also I'm not really sure if the term visual effects artist applys to me, i just tagged myself as that for lack of better options. Most of my work is text based so would i be considered a Titler? Anyways, suggestions are welcome before i finalize it and send it into the real world. And thanks andrew kramer for the tutorials, i used the reflection tutorial almost verbatim for one project.

Well, I've been told a demo reel must have a duration from 1 to 2 minutes not to bore the audience.
There is a community here at creative cow specyfic for Demo reels, take a look at it.

Not bad....depends on what you're looking to accomplish with the reel. You obviously have some talent, but you need more under your belt to grow. Why not try other things and add them to your reel.

C4D's great . . . really easy learning curve and AFX friendly. If I were you, I'd pick up the Lynda CD tutorials . . . they're excellent.
