with all the usual disclaimers, can i offer this:

1. yep, too long
2. your best stuff is not first...or second for that matter.
3. inconsistent quality presented (some kicka$$!, some really not)

i figger address #3 and #1 is solved!

a ton of work involved none-the-less. congrats:thumbsup:

I agree. I'd move some of your newer shots to the beginning of the reel. Like the car chase stuff. I'd also tighten the editing on some of the shots, a few of them kind of hang or carry on too long. This will save you precious seconds on your overall time. Maybe also a few labels on some of the shots, like the video game work for example. Just to clarify what you're trying to show and what you did.

Overall it feels somewhat long because the editing is kind of slow. I'm working on my reel right now and I try to keep all my shots under 10 seconds. If they go longer I break them up. Just to keep the pace up. But that's the style I'm going for, I know this is subjective.

And there's a few shots that could be yanked too.

Nice work though.
