Ok, should work now. Does technology ever make anyone else feel old?

Thanks for the patience

Only Sometimes. Normally I just beat my computer till it works....
Ok, #1, De interlace if at all possible.
There's a camera shake @ the end of the vista shot approx 0;35 into the reel.
Surfing and the skateboarding, at 1:00 min about seem flat, but can be saved with a color correct. They just seem to lack some definition.
the shot around 1:13 into the reel of the woman, it just feels dirty/underlit. I'm not sure I would've used it.
The black and white stuff in there, well it looks like digitalvideo, as the whites are clipping like mad on the walls.
That being said, you have some very nice work in there as well. I would condense down the shots and shot a bit more from the really well shot projects scenes. I feel you're trying to show your variety of work, which is very good, but, show your best best!
This is just my opinion and lord knows I don't have the best reel around either.

Good luck!
