I'm college student studying filmmaking in Long Beach, CA.

This is my first director/editor demo reel. I'd like to have suggestion and critique (and encouragement, too)

Thank you very much!

question actuallz
by Katja Stotmeister
Hey, I enjoyed ur reel very much actually, and I particularly enjoyed the pacing of it. I actually think you should narrow your selection down to what are your most prominent selections and then show a bit more of those particular productions. Style in edit and cinematography will show greater impact (as in less is more).

Also, I love the choice of music u picked for ur piece. Very nicely underlines the cinematic feel. I was also wondering, if you had a tip on where to look for music and such.

Thanks, Katja.

Thank you for your comment. I appreciate your advice, and that's true. I'll narrow down the selection I have made and make this demo better.

I looked for the music from the movie I like, "All About Lily Chou Chou" I loved the mood of the film, so I wanted to use the music from it.

Hi, thank you for your comment. I am always interested in and try to create attractive color, so I'm really glad to hear that. I used HVX200 on "Anthem"
very nice
by Linas Grubys
I like your work. Excellent color. What camera did you use for "Anthem"?

Thank you for your comment. I'm very glad that you *really* like this. This kind of encouragement is vital for me to create next film. I really appreciate it!

Michael Slowe, I think I would cut down the numbers of the production to show next time. I need to emphasize my strong point.

Very well shot with great camerawork but covering so many productions makes it a bit muddled. I would like to see a complete piece to judge your editing and pacing.

Thanks for your comment. I had a lot of fun color grading the music video. A lot of compose mode in FCP.

Hi, Taketoshi... I *really* like your work here! It seems that you're a good storyteller. I like the pacing, lighting, and angles that you use... there's a lot of subtle nuance. Thank you for sharing... す

Nice work!

Very lyrical, deep colors. I enjoyed it!
