Guiseppe, if this is your personal reel it probably would be best for you to start with your name and what you do (director? cinematographer?) and eliminate ALL of the "new beginning" references, except perhaps for the very first one if you really feel it is necessary. This is a demo reel, not a trailer, so it shouldn't be "presented" by any other entity than yourself. And it should end with your name (and contact info if you like), if that is indeed what you are selling. As you can see, I am confused by the duality of the titles and thus so likely will others.

Also, what is the MPAA rating card doing in there? Has one of your projects gone through their rating process? If not, that shouldn't be in the reel.

Sorry if this seems harsh, but as I initially mentioned, you have some nice work in there but it is being interrupted by these graphics. Let the work speak for itself, identify yourself clearly and don't fall victim to the trappings of hype.

well, that project you are referring to was for school and we had to edit a realistic trailer so that's why its in there. I'll add contact info to the end though. Thanks

You should still probably take it out. It doesn't need to be in there now. And technically it's misleading.
