I just put up my new demo reel on my website and would love to get some feedback. Please let me know your positive and negative comments. Thanks!

I looked at the dramatic reel. It's got some perfectly competent work, but I find it kind of drags on and on.

Do you feel the editing is not quick enough or the demo is too long?

When I clicked on your first reel link, Firefox said there was a plugin missing but it couldn't tell me what plugin was needed. You should use a standard format.

"Do you feel the editing is not quick enough or the demo is too long?"

I wasn't put off by the editing rythems. I just watched it and ran my stop watch along w/ it: It's not that long, but it feels really long. I think you may be too attached to preserving some narrative sense of the films from which you're taking your clips, or you may be attached to the process that went into some shots, and this is causing you to include a fair bit of footage that is less compelling. The biggest drop in quality is after the skateboarder. Hope this helps!
