Some nice photography, way too long, too much. Chop it down and eliminate all of the shots that you don't think are the absolute BEST you can do.

Thanks for sharing.

More than likely seen by Vimeo as a commercial work. Sorry I missed it.

I feel like that should be re-labeled a production services reel, as it incorporates too many things to go under the banner of cinematography. Clients that are interested in seeing your motion graphics work have to wait too long to get to that (and that section is cut rather quickly), while those interested in seeing the cinematography have to wait until :50 to see an example of lighting. The event section (with the various stage productions) represents neither cinematography nor motion graphics to me. So to me, this represents more of an overview of your company's work, although I think if that were the case the elements should be intercut right from the beginning rather than parceled, and perhaps graphic supers should indicate the various services as they come up (as bulleted at the end of the current video).

I was really impressed by this demo real. Really like all the time lapse footage throughout. I am particularly curious on how you captured the time lapse footage from the boat departing. The footage was so steady. I am becoming more and more familiar with film on a boat, and keeping the camera steady is far more challenging then I originally assumed. I imagine that the boat used to capture your footage was a large vessel that was unaffected by minor waves.

Wow, that was absolutely incredible. I see stuff like this and think, "man, I have so far to go". There was never a point in the video where I was bored. Did you do everything yourself?

Great reel. Great cinematography.

I would usually say "too long" for something of this length, but I think you really pulled it off. I clicked away after about 4:00, but for me, "too long" is when you start to suck after a minute or two. Yours was still great when I clicked away.

I thought your aerial time lapses were your weakest element, and yet you started with them. There was so much good stuff after that -- why not bury (or get rid of) them?
