Please take a look at my reel! I'd appreciate any solid, critical feedback.
Finally cut a reel together.

There's some really nice shots in there, Davon. You're first and last shots of the reel are very strong, but I would remove the second shot from the reel. The first shot is very surreal and then, "smack", you're back down to earth. It felt a bit jarring to me. Maybe try a dissolve instead of a cut if you're married to it. I'd also trim the "mint" montage down, I felt it was repetitive. LOVE the shot of the guy by the payphone at the truckstop...well executed. Hope this helps a bit. Make sure to post a final version if you change anything. Good luck.

You know, I just re-watched the reel and it is a dissolve from shot 1 to shot 2. Sorry. I'd cut that shot and transition to something else if possible. Cheers.
