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

Thanks all!

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.
