Demo reel

I'm updating my website and working on my demo reel; being an "old" guy I would like to hear your opinion if it looks appealing for younger generation, it looks Ok to me, but I know there is always room for improvement,
thanks!

Re: Demo reel

Wow Very nice, love the shoots. What type of cameras and steady-cam are you using. How many cameras do you use to cover one wedding. How did you rig up the tray with the shot glasses? There is nothing "old" about that demo reel- Loved It!

It's 3-4 cameras, EX1 on steadicam pilot, HF G10 on the crane and the rest are DSLRs, 1D, 5D and recently added 60D; for the shot on the tray you need a full frame and 15mm fisheye, just set the 5D on the tray and off you go :)
tried 14mm but can't focus, too close, or you need a larger tray :)

Re: Demo reel

Hey Buba,

Very nice stuff there... some great inventive shots. Great steadicam work as well. I may 'borrow' that shot glass shot. Very cool!

Re: Demo reel

Outstanding in every respect. I had to watch it 3 times for it's entertainment value.

Neat stuff for an older guy.

The music also swept it along at an exhilarating pace. What did you use? Something from a royalty free collection?

Re: Demo reel

Nice reel, but the music was a bit much if you're trying to sell weddings. Between the music, the shot cuts and the distorted video effect, I was expecting a bomb to go off or something within the first 15 seconds and for Tom Cruise to come in and save the day.

The whole reel kind of had a Mission Impossible feel to it, I guess.

Other than that, the shots, exposure and everything else was great! You should consider doing commercials professionally (if you don't already).

Re: Demo reel

Id hire you in a minute if i got married, that was top class work. I agree with Bryan on the music front, i thought it was the exorcist soundtrack for the first 10 sec

Re: Demo reel

Nice demo reel. For the tray shot, would a GoPro be able to pull that off?

Re: Demo reel

WOW. Stunning cinematography. Though I agree with Andy and Bryan on the music. I'd probably cut out the first 21 seconds and start with the groomsmen walking toward the camera.
