Luke, I agree with Chris. Great stuff as well. One suggestion - drop the "school project" or "only stuff from school" lingo and references completely from your vocabulary. For 2 reason - 1) because your footage doesn't look like that (which is great), and 2) no one will care or know unless you mention it. You're selling yourself and your work speaks for what you can do. When I hear folks bringing up "only school" it tells me that they lack confidence in what they are doing now, and that is more of a red flag in some ways then being inexperienced. I'm not saying you should lie or sell yourself as more than what you are, but definitely don't undersell yourself either. What you are now is a young professional and if anyone asks why you don't have some other type of material on your reel, you can tell them that you haven't worked on that type of project yet, etc...
