Shooting reel rough cut - feedback?

Hello,
I've put together the rough cut of a shooting reel and was hoping to get some feedback. Check out the video if you get a chance and let me know what you think.

Thanks!

Impressive. A large body of work here. I noticed that some of your material was mixed - 4x3 and 16x9. I would letter box the 4x3 material to match the 16x9 (since people are moving that direction).

Also, thought it was a touch long. Maybe cut a "best of" after this reel is done.

Mark. What's good is that you have plenty of footage to choose from. The challenge when creating a demo reel is to tie all of that footage together. As of now it seems like you could make the same reel simply by randomly picking clips and cutting them to the music. What I suggest is to somehow select clips that flow together, and put them to a song/instrumental that helps define your work/style. At least that's what I would do ; ). Also if you are going to be switching aspect ratios, be sure the dimensions of the video AND the player are correct.

Thanks for sharing! All the best.
