- The two title cards near the end (Patriot Act, ACLU) are a little jarring since they're the only ones in the reel, and they appear too fast to read. I would either keep them on screen a little longer, or better yet, take them out since they aren't relevant to your camera skills. If you can find a better way to introduce the interview section (e.g. a shot of someone approaching an interviewee with a microphone), that would be a great alternative.
- The first few shots (the guys smoking in the dark) seem to be less interesting than any of your other footage. I would either move that sequence a little further in to the reel, or take it out - I think it's best if the first shots are among your best, and set the stage for the rest of the reel.

Lovely work, great variety and sample. I didn't see any ACLU or other signs that seems to have distracted others, but the work here is great. More samples of "up" lighting, less contrasty, might top it off nicely for those producers or directors looking for that sunshine-glow look.
Any advice is welcome. THX

The resume pop-up box on the site seems a bit small to me. Also you spell "Varicam" with an A.
