XL2 Demo Reel

Hey guys,

I just finished up my first demo reel which has all shots from the XL2. Im just looking for some feedback on what could have been done different, what could be completely dropped, and some advice on tuning up my images a bit. Let me know what you think. It is on the main page of my website, you cant miss it. www.mikeberlucchi.com Thanks ahead of time.

Nice job! I love how the music matches!
What camera did you use for all that?

Thanks for the fun of watching it.

Mike,

I think you demo is pretty good. I generally don't like the skateboard stuff but your's was pretty interesting. By the way I like your website design.

Regards

Thanks alot for the feedback everyone, I really appreciate it. Brian I did not use any filters or lens adapters other than ND and polarizers, most of the effects were done in post and white balancing on all sorts of different colors. Once again thanks alot guys.

Looks good Mike. I really like the site layout, very clean. Ive seen some film or media sites that go nuts with their design and content. The reel is well done and I like the aerial footage. What were you up in when you shot that? I had to shoot out of a small Cessna once and got sick as hell.

Mike, for the aerial footage I was in a helicopter. I got a little dizzy after a while but it wasnt too bad. Thanks for the feedback though I appreciate it.

Definately very cool Reel Mike.

I'm working on my reel too, hopefully I can get it done soon to get feedback (this would be my very first reel).

Again, awesome job.

The site is great too. Not too much, not too little. Just right.

Thanks guys. Andrew I use Sony Vegas 5 and After Effects to edit. I used Sorenson 3 to compress the video and I just made it as high quality as I could to be a reasonable file size.

Well Done Mike. I enjoyed the colors - the school bus shot with kids was really great. Great flow of the song and like the way of using your footage to tell a story.
