I threw this on to youtube for the moment...the edit is sloppy and quick...shots too long (especially the tv knobs...I don't know what happen there) but regardless I am looking for specific feedback: What shots work in the reel and which shots don't...please think like an agency looking to represent cinematographers and less like a cinematographer ( I know...that's counterintuitive) In general...what works for you, the sound, the images?

Thanks everyone. Everything is on 35, except for a couple of shots on 16 and S16.

Cole,
Looks great, and it moves right along. I would like to see a little more variety, but then again I've gone to your site an looked at all your stuff so maybe I'm just too familiar with it.

Only shot I don't like is the hairdresser turning and looking at the camera at 0:37. Overall I like the music and pace, I also like you you matched the visuals with the music and lyrics a few times. And I love your adidas ad.

Thanks Greg. Yeah, more then one person has told me that. I appreciate it! For everyone else, I was able to get it on my site so here is the new better compressed URL:

I would agree to get rid of the hairdresser turning her head and I didn't like the band shots toward the end. Other than that, great.

Nice & quick. What needs to go??: Intro shot of the footballer, hairdresser turning to camera and smiling, maybe also the dolly coverage of the hairdresser, the backlit shot of green leaves, IMHO.

I quite liked the leaves really, they added some nice color contrast against the rest of your reel. The hairdresser bugged me but i enjoyed the pace of the rest.

capital work!

Great. Thanks everyone...it seems that I should cut the hairdresser turing to look at the camera for sure. Thanks again.
