It's way too big as a file size. I know most of you want to maintain some sort of visual integrity, but honestly most of you could cut your files down to a quarter of the size and they'd still look and work fine. I don't expect 1920 HD online and in fact, it annoys me when I have to wait for some huge file to load only to realize it could have been far smaller and told the sa me story and visually worked just as well.

Look is good, but it's waaay to long. The music is distracting a bit and as for the site, you might want to thinking about doing a flash and an HTML version; as Flash can't be googled (unless you use metadata tags).
Cut down the reel a lot and you might want to consider loosing the opening almost nude shot. Not that it's bad, but, what if a woman is watching it? If they were that first shot might make them turn it off. . .
