Ok here's the deal;

There is no room for the word "Shit" in a reel. It's just unprofessional (even though that's probably the mildest word you'll ever hear in an editing suite). Secondly, your reel ISN'T the "shit" so you're starting off lying to the client. You seem to have a decent grasp of some of the compositing elements, but I found the little guy in the corner annoying. Word balloons don't quite make me want to go "WOW!" so I'd think about their use. (If you had a Flash look, you could get away with some word balloon use, but it's a tricky thing.) Keep working and try to tighten up the flow. There just wasn't any real "PUNCH" to the reel. I liked the before/after idea as it draws attention to the skill that you're trying to showcase. It's a bit on the slow side you you risk losing the audience (boredom). But Keep trying, that's the only way you'll ever improve.
