I've just recently decided that cinematography is what I want to pursue in school. I would greatly appreciate any comments or criticisms, whether it be about the shots I chose or the format/pacing/etc. of the reel. Actually, any tips on reels would be awesome since I know I'm going to making more when I get more footage.
Here it is:
Some of my biggest criticisms:
1. I need to show more range. All the material comes from three or four projects that I did this semester, I need more variation in actors and content.
2. I hold on the argument in the bathroom towards the end of the reel for too long. It showcases the actor's performances more than my shots. I was suggested that it would be good to include a full scene, which is what I thought I was doing, but that's not the full scene at all and I could of picked something that wasn't just a shot reverse shot in close up.
3. My info at the end is in an ugly font and I'd like as I got more serious to get a better email and perhaps a website.
Do you think I overuse the light leak effects? I had just spent like 60 bucks on the pack so I was pretty eager to try them out.
