There is some good stuff but it is outweighed by the not so good. Get rid of all the dark, not lit footage. Get rid of all the editing gimmicks. There is one shot in particular where you pan from a room to a guy in bed and them zoom to his face. What good is the dark footage at the head. People want so if you can light. They don't care if you can pick up a video camera and shoot anything. Cut it down to half at least. The fight scene is too dark. Keep the footage where you have light and some sort of separation. The profile shot of the guy smoking the cig bathed in blue light is OK but it is only good after the rack and while there is smoke. The next shot of the guy smoking the cig is too dark and I would lose that.After that it looks good. The close up on the Asian guy is jittery but the lighting is good. The music is horrific. It was driving me nuts to the point I did not want to watch any more.

Thanks for taking the time Tom. I see what you mean and will defenetly change most of this reel. Especially the stuff that is too dark. Reasons why I chose some shoots was simple because I have not shot a whole lot yet but like you suggested I also will make it shorter so I can choose more carefully what shots will make it in the reel. I agree with everything but the music:) but that is a taste thing I guess. Everyone critiquing my reel said about what u said but you are the 1st one that doesen't like the music...;)

Well anyway thanks again and I hope the next time you will have less to critque...
