Hey all,

I'm a graduating senior studying Cinema-Television at Regent University. I've been involved with filmmaking for about 2 years now since transferring here, and I hope in a couple of years to be working as a DP for feature films.

I'd love to get some feedback on my latest reel and thoughts on how it could be improved:

Thanks a bunch!

Hey Daniel, here again I see a really good reel. Nice shot choice, great composition choices. I could easily see you and Matt stepping in to shoot some of what I see on HBO or AMC these days. There is a whole generation now being brought up with shows like Breaking Bad, Nurse Jackie and such. And from what I see in reels here some of you guys are really watching and learning. How to improve your reel? Just keep doing what your doing, looks good, really good.

Good reel....I've been a non-Hollywood/NY DP now for about 5 yrs....couple of helpful pointers....get yourself some warm cards if you are shooting HD 16:9 (www.warmcards.com)....I use them on every shoot I'm on....also, when shooting skies, your opening title, polarizers if you have one....they will deepen the blue in the sky and take out any reflection from mirrors to windows that might trip you up.....here's my reel, athough I'm going to be updating it soon.....http://www.productionhub.com/video/view.aspx?item=8710
