The first thing i would cut is the harsh black and white sequence that leads into the guy sat down in the ally.
Just looks outa place cut the hole sequence.
Secondly their seems to be to many headshots all linked together, try mixing it up more if you have more footage.
The final thing i would change, or just think about next time you do your reel. Try finding some contrasting music and really mix it up just using short emotive sections of tracks to fit with visuals.
When you just use one track the hole way through you are really taking a chance and making the edit more painstaking.
Although the music you chose was nice and unobtrusive, i can think of tracks that would have suited sequence's much better.
Then again it's not easy to get clearance, but who cares about that on a reel, it's not going to be broadcast is it ?

I really like the reel untill you speed up the edits along with the music. The reason the head shots look bland is their isn't any real movement or emotion in the shots.
Love the girl standing in rain as car drives past
Didn't see point of lady on bed reading magazine ?
Keep us posted.

Be interested to see it with different music - and I will also be interest to see "Dungbeetle" stuff.
I think their is one frame from a previous shot that makes it looks like it is a skip during the "Pride" stuff with them looking into the frame with thier wedding clothes--take a look.
Looks very, very, pretty Travis.

I've been thinking about the use of different music you suggested Matthew. different music for different sections. Have you tried this or seen it in other reels? I would like to try it, but I'm not quite sure how go about it. I'll see if it works.
I have done this many times but alas nothing online.
Have you ever watched a film ?
lol sorry i mean a good film with a good soundtrack.
Of corse, well it's same principle but shorter.
I have shown your reel to a few friends and they say don't change a thing.
Including my girlfriend and she is always right lol

You sent me your reel on DVD and I found it to be among the very best reels I received. And that's saying something, since I've received upwards of 100 reels so far.
I'll probably make a post on what I consider the makings of a really outstanding reel based on my experience watching them, but just wanted to let you know that yours is in the top ten percent. You're one of the few people that used music appropriately (as tempo got faster, so did the edits).
Anyway, just thought I'd let you know that I liked your reel.

however, I disagree with the comment about taking out the
black&white into the man in alley....I think it only seems
a little out of place due to the placement, not illiminating
it....just put the man running (color shots) first to work into
the character smoother, than I think it would be fine.
other than those things.........FANTASTIC REEL!!
is everything 35mm?

But if you do want to cut some shots, I suggest looking at your last one - I think there are many outstanding shots in your reel and I think you would want the last one to be one of your best. Other shots that you might want to leave out/replace: the scene with the guy in front of the presentation screen; the guy applauding; the tire; the (headless) guy sitting down on the bench in the hallway (but maybe keep the close up of him sitting down); the drill. But...this is only to make your excellent stuff come out even better! Other than that: very impressive!!
