The music dominates the clip, and with it's strong story lyric, takes away completely from your reel. I would find a piece of music that you can comfortably let play across the entire footage with only slight fading to allow the dialogue to rise through. If you do decide to keep the track that you have, then it has to be mixed in much tighter to even have a chance of working at all.
Even though I like the shots of the commercial, you need to find a way of intergrating them into your reel without it seeming like you're throwing in all that you have. If I was editing your reel I would start with the logo, then the commercial stuff running without sound, then cut in hard with your (feature/short) drama footage with a better music track and audio mix - and cut that footage more like a trailer - then snap back to a small finish on the commercial in silence, then your logo.
PS: What was the horror stuff shot on?

i'd remove the absolut shot and try to just condense it more or less, but nice stuff indeed. keep us updated with newer versions as they develop.

I would be interested to know how much of it was on film. I noticed some video stuff.
The music can be sooo hard to figure out. I know that I was cutting my reel sometime ago but I couldn't even start building a timeline because I haven't found a song to cut it to yet.
I am looking for something without dialogue.
Great first cut (even if it wasn't your first that's ok) I think you can make changes and improve it by following some of the constructrive criticism of these posts. Good work.
If anyone has any suggestions as to what song they have cut their reel to, or songs they really like that would work on a reel I would be happy to hear them.

Chris, what was the horror/thriller footage shot on?
Everything on there was shot on the SDX-900
