Brady,

 

Here is my opinion. I think the music choice makes it feel too amateur and does not aid the visuals. The fish head shot is not strong and would recommend not using it. There are a few shots that look like they have not been graded and would pop much better once graded.

 

The shots that stood out to me the most were the opening shot (great opener), the toy boat shots were fantastic, and the dancer in the chair.

 

Make this shorter by 30 seconds by trimming down shots that are too long and cutting everything but your best shots.

 

Keep shooting! Best of luck.

 

Alex

I think it would be awesome if you trimmed it down to just 2 minutes.  I know some guys who will literally watch reels on the fast forward button if they're longer.

I dug it.  It was weird, but you're not afraid to show how weird you are.  I thought it was very interesting, but sophisticated and pretty at the same time.  It was good looking and unique.  Nice work.
