I shoot a few short films a year when I'm not doing G&E work. I was hoping to get feedback on my 2007 reel and also on the overall quality of my Photography. Please view it at:


Thanks.

Not bad. I like the horror stuff in the middle. But it is all in the wrong aspect ratio. I would fix that, it is kinda weird for some one who is billing himself/ herself as a DOP to show material that it is in the wrong aspect ratio. Akin to a writer who shows a script with wrong spellings / typos . . . But that's just me.

Youtube cannot properly understand anamorphic uploaded files. For web stuff, I always export as 4:3 and let the NLE letterbox it so as to have as little a surprise from the .flv compression as possible.

Overall, it looks ok, and by that I mean, it's hard to see ANYTHING through youtube compression. Try to get a better spot and a better compressed file to show people. I use blip.tv for my reel because i can hotlink to the .mov file (as in my signature) also, there is reel-exchange.com which seems to do alright with it's compression.

You are right about the aspect ratio. I'll work on fixing that in my 2008 reel. I suck at the computer editing and outputting part. I'll also check out blip.tv to get some ideas.

I enjoyed it - I'd really shorten it to 1:30-2mins, max.
