    A demo for what? Or is this just promoting your channel?

    Demo of our work this year - it has clips from several projects. We are two guys just starting it out. Just looking for feedback from other people in the industry...

    Honestly, it just seemed like a bunch of random clips thrown together. What it your message? After watching it, I don't have a clue as to what you are promoting or what you are trying to say. If you have to tell me, then you have failed. It reminds me of student projects from a community college intro to video class. I say that because it is clearly lacking a solid theme and a lot of the clips are so random with different effects with no reason. It's like.. "Hey lets throw this (effect) on to see what it looks like. Okay... that looks cool lets leave it."

    Unless you are just having fun (youtube style), or creating art/experimental video, you have to make sure that EVERY frame has a reason to support the message. You have to step back to make sure the pieces all work together to support the whole. Otherwise, you have failed.

    Having access to equipment doesn't make you talented or successful. But it's a start!

    Other than that, some of the shots are pretty well done. :D

    Thanks for your feedback. I just renamed it to "random clips from projects in 2010". ...back to fcp

    for the people who don't understand; its a demo reel. It's put together by editors/shooters to show off their work. In this case its a reel of the company showing off the work they've done in 2010.

    It was good. A little slow for my taste. IMO

    that was aweful.
    you need to have a much more fluid idea of what it is you are trying to showcase in your demo reel.

    this is a guy I know.
    I think it's a promo/demo reel.

    Despite falling back on every cliché there is, that's a damned good reel, maybe the best I've seen for corporate video.

    Before you talk **** you should learn the difference between a promo video and a demo reel.

    ...and your buddy's promo sucks.
