Just looking for a bit of feedback on this thing. Been playing around with it a bit too much and I feel like im starting to lose perspective. Thanks.

Every thing looked great. There was one shot where I didn't really believe the actor and that was in the grocery store, the kid with the goaty stands up into the frame and licks his lips, the shot was great though, the acting bugged me. Just my opinion but overall a strong reel.

A lot of nice stuff in there. My critiques: I think the rack-focus shot near the start of the reel is a little flat. The following shot, of the kid popping up into frame in the convenience store, is a lot stronger. In general, I'd say your narrative fill sides were all a little bright for my taste (final C/U, for ex.) ... Of course, that's my taste.

The C/U of the samsung phone is quite nice, but I wonder if you felt you had to include the prior shot, m/cu of the woman looking down at the phone, in order to get to it. I ask because I included a few "stepping stone" shots in my own reel (which has its own thread), and I would love to think it's OK to get rid of them.

Good work.
