Re: My 2013 Demo Reel

I thought it was good, but for some reason I feel like the wedding stuff should be a separate show reel to the events stuff.

Re: My 2013 Demo Reel

Hi, mate. My thoughts:

1. Good work. It sells your abilities.

2. You have clips of varying quality and subject mashed together. For example, I'd remove:

- The man at 9 seconds
- The man at 27 seconds
- The military clips at 52 seconds
- The CD signing at 1 minute (or else chop it back to < 1 second length)
- The military clips at 1:07

Shorten the clip at 1:17 - cut it as soon as the camera is fully underwater

3. Are all those wedding clips captured from real life? As in, did you have control of the performance, or was it a real wedding that you filmed? If the latter, you've done very very well.

Re: My 2013 Demo Reel

Hey guys! Thanks so much!

Richard: Fair points entirely, and I have filmed a lot of varying subjects and varying quality videos in the last year. I'm hoping to actually update it in around 3 months once a few of the new projects I'm working on are done.

To the wedding one, I didn't set up or control anything in the weddings, I just try to capture what's going on in as visually interested a way as possible. Thanks so much for your kind thoughts guys! As a side note: To all the people who feel that their gear isnt good enough, all this was shot on t3is except the opening shot haha.
