Hey everyone, just finished cutting a new reel. Check it out and let me know what you think! And don't be easy on me just because I'm a student. :lol:

I think the most important thing is to light with more subtlety and nuance. The lighting tended to look a little "sourcey", but you had nice placement of shadows and compelling shot design. What year are you?

I'd say light sources can look "sourcey" as long as there is a motivation for it. Sort of finding a happy medium between soft even lighting and strong directional lighting, as required by the scene, project, etc. But I agree. I didn't really see a motivation for the strong lights in the first section. Also, the reel is overall dark and brooding in its lighting. If I were hiring a DP, I'd be looking for someone whose reel showed me range in lighting and mood.
