Hello,

I am a young cinematographer (22 years old) seeking feedback from experienced eyes in the field.
This reel is a collection of my work mainly in Beirut, Lebanon.

Shot using primarily digital cameras (they closed down the laboratories in lebanon).
Cameras include RED One / RED One MX / ARRI Alexa / Sony F3 / DSLRs (5D MK2 and 7D).

I did the grading for all the shots on DaVinci Resolve.

Any comment or critic is highly appreciated.




Thank you,
Jad Beyrouthy | Cinematographer

Very impressive reel, but I would change the background music. One of my main gripes on about reels is how DPs try to turn them into some kind of music video instead of a showcase of their work. I nearly turned this one off because I was getting a headache, but the images kept me interested.

Change it to something more atmospheric and less intrusive.

Thank you for the feedback :)
Will do that of course.

I tried a very dynamic music this time because on my last showreel i got reviews that the music was boring.
I guess my weak point is the choice of cinematic music. (I let the sound design department take over)

Thanks again,
I appreciate it.
