Hello Sean,

I hope you do not take this the wrong way but if this were my demo reel, I'd cut it down to just the absolute best stuff and shorten it. Lose things like the podiatrist checking the woman's foot, arguably the weakest moment in the video (but there are others like it), and concentrate on the strong and positive images.

The best demo reels I have seen are 30 seconds long and make you go "Man, I wish they had shown more!" Most video reels make the viewer hit the stop button because they are showing too much and for too long.

Please do not take this as a slap in the face, you have great stuff here -- show it. Leave the rest on the cutting room floor...then repost it.
