Anyway, in the past, you have posted about sending your reel to producers. I was wondering if you had any plans to put a version of your demo reel online (they generally are works in progress and there is never a final version of one, as far as I am concerned). There are HD Flash video sites such as Vimeo who let one embed the video clip and player onto an existing website. The clip can playback full screen at the click of a button as well. Then one can have a small version for the handheld playback and a bigger one for desktop viewing. This may be more than you may be willing to undertake, but I was just curious.

Nice stills, I love the variety of looks. Lighting/Color/Framing
Quick question: When you did Manure, did you test various optics, were the ultra primes at all too sharp in any situation?

You cut your reel on iMovie???? Surely, they have a copy of Final Cut floating around the clubhouse.
I'm not going to drive from Mar Vista to Hollywood just to use a computer at the ASC offices... and I'm not sure they'd let me steal a copy, if that's what you mean.
Eventually I'll upgrade my Mac laptop and get FCP. Right now, it's a bit underpowered for putting a lot of video clips on it.

Have you done film-out on "Stay Cool?" I'm curious how that look translates to physical grain.
No, only a temp color timing in HD.

I'm having trouble figuring out how to make the quality better online -- I cut my reel on iMovie using 60i DVCAM copies, and one montage was cut from a DVD, but it seems like I'd somehow have to convert them to 24P just to compress them better for web presentation.
Obviously I dont know the specifics of your "trouble" but it sounds like you could use Sorenson Squeeze. Its a piece of software that allows a tremendous amount of control in encoding your video so you can strike that balance between high quality video and small file size leading to quick down loads.
I had a friend drive the software for me and we got very good results for my site. check it out.
