Select your preferred format under the "reel" section.

My only comment would be to use DOF to reduce showing the background when you do not have massive art dept work
Your understanding of framing is great and I would try get some shots in with really wide and really tight lenses (like a 10mm Ultra and a 180mm ultra)
But otherwise great
my 2 cents

I would have ended it on the shot of the guy sliding down the fence, then when your name comes up the solo piano hits in, the other colour shots all feel like repeats after that.

The length was good -- not too long. I like what someone said about ending on a note and having your name appear again at the end.

For everyone in general: Is it appropriate to have just one reel or one for genre, i.e. one for action, one for drama, etc. I ask because my instructor, Ric Waite, has three reels, each for a different genre. His explanation, was that, if you're going for a particular movie, you want to be specific to the type of movie.
Me, I don't know...I'm just mentioning what I was told. I'd be lucky to have a reel half as good as this one.

The music: Adam's right, "Explode" from the Cardigans off of their Gran Turismo album - in my top ten.
