Peter,

Thank you for the feedback.

My goal wasn't for the reel to appeal to one sect of the industry but rather to create an engaging ambient piece utilizing clips from our past projects. Any client who has a need for some type of visual production will be sent a copy or a link to the reel. After speaking with a client, I have more industry specific examples I send which are more applicable to their needs. With the current incarnation of the reel, I believe most clients are intelligent enough to realize there is a transferrability of craft. For instance, a large publshing company has hired us to create a corresponding video case study for a collegiate textbook. While we dont explicitly state or show examples of academic video, our client felt we were capable from viewing the reel. As for what is being sold, I can use my reel to show examples of various aspects of production and post-production. As for your statement of "I think the reel looks like a lot of other reels that I've seen," this fulfills my request for criticism however it falls short on the constructive side. How does my reel look like a lot of the other reels? Is it shot compostion? lighting? transitions?

Thank you for the feedback on the brightness--I'll turn it up a notch.


cheers
-adam

Cool, nicely done. I like the blown out whites emulating the stock they used to film those. Fun story too, nice punch line, but the laughter matched their actions...should've dubbed it poorly ;)

There was a little vignetting in the corners, you may want to consider zooming into the adaptor slightly if you are able.

Very nice - It had good pace, and I enjoyed the humour & action.

I take it that the policeman was going for a quick 'Jimmy Riddle' when he ran into the bushes at the start. :)

(Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2006) Olive - The Virgin and The Gypsy

Here's a spot I just directed for the 2006 Mercedes Benz fashion week in Sydney, Australia titled, "The Virgin and The Gypsy". This is the piece of film that will play before the "Olive" Fashion Designs runway show. We shot this in an Amusement Park that we had at our disposal in a day.

Shot on XL2, mini35, prime lenses.

Post production entirely on Macs.

Edited in FCP, slow motion with Twixtor 4, titling and output with After Effects 6.5 Professional.

Encoded in .h264 (Quicktime 7 required.)

Hope you guys like it!

A short film I did last semester...

http://jerfilm.com/Purpose/purpose.wmv

Here is a short film I did last semester in one of my classes. It's a little rough around the edges as it was a last minute project...maybe I will reshoot it one day. I mainly used my school's equipment: Sony DSR-250, FCP, and some editing on my system (vegas) when crunch time came around.

Hope you enjoy!
Jeremiah

-Also, the music currently on the video is a temp track (although I love it)...I'm in the process of having someone score and record a soundtrack.

At first I was bored, the beginning is way to slow. I think this can be edited big time. I think 10-14 minute is more than long enough.

The end is so good though, very impactful. Even though the actors were not the best I almost got teary eyed. I have had similar experiences, I was not the guy going to kill him self but the other guy.

I do not understand what this terminology of a reel. I thought a reel was like 11 minutes and a double reel 20-22 minutes.

If someone can shed light.

I liked the quality but I have no idea what it is promoting, or is about. Also at the very end it does not fully fade out.
