    ok to be honest here... You have some good editing skills and some good filming skills. But your storyboard is lacking to say teh very least. I just watched a small film in which i have no idea what just happened. Is it an ad? Is it supposed to be a movie? You have cars, then a couple, then cars, then some guy playing pool, then cars, then some dudes having a gun fight. Its quite confusing. If it were me trying to show off my mojo, i would have stuck to one agenda/subject. It throws your reel off completely, almost as if you took some clips that looked good on its own and tried to blend them. Good transition, good music, good filming, bad implementation.

    and also would say its too long, my interest started to wonder.

    Your camerawork, editing, and music (but not sound) is very good. It is a bit too over-the-top artsy, which works better for stills than videos, but you can always tone it down a bit. What could use improvement is your storytelling and direction. I assume that directing is what you want to focus on, but don't pass up acting and screenwriting classes.

    Needs continuity...

    I liked a lot of the stock footage though.

    What kind of camera did you use for this?

    Also what did you use to host that vid on your site?

    Thanks for the feedback, but this is not a narrative. It's a reel sampling bits and pieces of projects I've worked on all year.

    Kind of :cool: I digged a lot of the effects and was actually entertained. The music was nice also, yours? Either way well done! Yeah the storyboard is lacking, like most said, and the dude running around with the gun :mamoru: Either way I'd like to see more...

    Seeing how its a sample reel of all your work looks good, by the end i was thinking its a continuation of the series Fastlane with the cars, chicks, and guns.

    I'd separate the different genres. Just me though. I liked all of the car shit, but the people (without cars) did nothing for me.
