My reel is missing something. I

I think you should make it separate reels, as in a Narrative/Music Video and a separate Commercial Industrial reel. The cut; for example between Crayola and a Music video is pretty jarring (and in truth the music video looks "better" for a DoP reel in my opinion)
The Music video sequence with the bassist is fine; for a few seconds, but then it kinda lingers (and doesn't look super great compared to the kissing couple)
The reverse of that is kinda "eh" as well, and then you do the basically same shot with just a heavy mist filter effect.
It also might be too long (though I know I'm guilty of larger sins). If it's not your BEST or most INTERESTING work, cut it out. But certainly make it a narrative/music video reel, and a commercial industrial video reel.
My 2 cents.

Another general rule I try to follow: front load it with the best stuff. The first 15 seconds are important.
