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!

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.
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"
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.
Thank you for your comment! I'll challenge to achieve more professional work and will post next time.
Beautiful colors, beautiful light. Congratulations!

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
Stuff is good.
I like the coloring on Jiku.
Thank you for your comment! I'll
Thank you for your comment!
I'll post my music video and the latest short, "PACT" when it's done.
Very lyrical, deep colors. I enjoyed it!
If you have other clips, such as shorts or music videos, be sure to post those too.
